With all the best plans there will be an influx of new toys and games if you have children every year around the holidays and around their birthdays.
To avoid being overrun by toys start sorting though your toys now and think about donating. It’s a great skill to develop giving.
This is the second year we have participated in Operation Christmas Child. The kids have fun packing their box and are excited to know that a little boy will receive the items they picked. We sponsor a World Vision child too and during the next week they’ll be drawing pictures to add to the Christmas gift and sending to her.
What gifts do you give away? Who do you support?
