Happy August! Today I have the August OCC gift list for you which is school supplies.
So when it comes to school supplies you probably already know what to get for the 5-9 and 10-14 year olds. They are easier to buy for in this category. But here is a list that I make for myself every year.
- Pencils and Pens
- Erasers (Big ones and pencil toppers)
- Pencil sharpener
- Small notebooks (ones that don’t have to be folded to fit in the box)(I usually put two in a box because of this.)
- Glue stick and scissors
- Markers or colored pencils
- Pencil case (I personally usually go with the fabric ones)
- Calculator (My friends are the ones that usually buy these) ( I don’t think of these most of the time.)
So that was a list for the 5-14 year olds. But when it comes to the 2-4 year olds I used to just give them paper and crayons. I didn’t really think about other things to get them till yesterday while talking about it with my Mama. So here is a list of this for the younger box’s
- Little note pad with colored paper
- Little note pad with white paper (No lined paper just plain paper)
- Glue stick
- Blunt scissors
- Crayons or markers
I never really thought about the four year olds needing a little more than coloring paper. As my little Niece gets bigger and loves to color and use stickers it finally accrued to me that they would want more to do. LOL. My little Niece is just 17 months and is already using markers. So yeah. 🙂
Ok so as for the theme this month! It is Sports!!!
Think basketball, soccer, baseball, football, hockey, volleyball, Cheerleading, and so much more! Have fun with it, choose you favorite sport. With the Olympics on it really is making me think about all the different sports that are out there.
You can buy school supplies in the colors of your favorite sports team or even get clothes that are sports themed. I like to get clothes that have soccer balls on them or even basketballs. My little Nieces Mama loves softball and field hockey so she buys her clothes that are softball or baseball themed. Really have fun in looking for things that make you happy and think about the sport you love. Remember whatever you choose will go to a child that may also really love the sport that you do, and may even encourage them when they are feeling discouraged. The smallest things sometimes make the biggest difference.
