We’re walking toward Christmas through daily actions that point us toward light.
The calendar theme for the second week of Advent (beginning on Sunday, December 6,) is creating a gift box of small items for a child. You should be able to find these things at a local drugstore or dept. store. Each day you’ll add something to the box. Feel free to make substitutions if you wish!
Child’s Toy Box : Give a child a gift for Christmas
*Fill and wrap a shoebox
*Choose the age of a child (2 to 12) you would like to receive this box. (Adapt items below to make them age- appropriate.) Feel free to wrap each item and then wrap the outer box too. Please add a label with age noted on the box. Try to keep things gender neutral. Deliver to UPCOB by December 16 for distribution or donate to a place of your choosing.
*Add an item each day Sunday – a small box of crayons or colored pencils and a coloring book
Monday – a small stuffed animal
Tuesday – a pair of mittens
Wednesday – a book or two
Thursday – a game, puzzle or playing cards (like Uno) that will fit in the box
Friday – 2 tubs of playdough or blocks of Sculpey
Saturday – a small lego set that will fit in the box; wrap the box and deliver to UPCOB
