While I’m in Ecuador distributing boxes with Operation Christmas Child I thought I’d share a FABULOUS idea for a great way to upcycle and add something to your shoeboxes. In fact I think this idea is so fabulous that I’d LOVE local VBS groups to get involved this summer and help us collect empty baby food containers, craft scraps, buttons, beads etc so we can fill them. I first saw this idea from my friend Clip With A Purpose and Rhonda took on the project to create this craft for us.
Now over to Rhonda:
The sky is the limit! Use stickers, paper, paint pens, and let your imagination lead the way.
I am Rhonda, a blessed wife of 21 years to my love, and homeschool mom to 2 great kids. We have been packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child for many years. First, just on our own at church. Then with our 4H groups. Then a year ago the Lord saw fit to move our family to beautiful Southern Oregon, and we were blessed to find our new church home was the Collection Center. We jumped in with enthusiasm and now both my 16 year old daughter and I are year round volunteers for Operation Christmas Child. We are more than a little OCC Crazed. You can see a little of what we do at our blog.
