I have another OCC get together for y’all!
My friends and I got together to work on OCC on the sixteenth. We ended up filling all of the 2-4 year old boxes. It was lots of fun and went by faster then I thought it would. We filled four boy boxes and four girl boxes. I didn’t think we would have enough for the boys shoeboxes. But we ended up having just the right amount with only a few extras.
Some of the things we put in each of the boxes were:
- Toothbrushes and Toothbrush Holder
- Brushes or Combs
- Soap and Soap Container
- Mittens and Hats
- Glue sticks
- Pencils and Pencil Sharpeners
That is just some of went in each box. We also put dolls in the girls and stuffed animals in the boys shoeboxes. But this year we ended up packing more clothing items then last year. We had shirts, shorts, pants, socks, mittens, and hats. My Mama even found two pair of little slippers. I made sure that both pair were used. They were to cute not too!
Here are six pictures of the boxes we packed! They just need labels!
After packing the boxes we still had some time to hangout before my friends had to leave. So we went through the 5-9 year old’s bucket. We took things out of there boxes and cut tags off of stuffed animals. Toothbrushes put into holders and clothes were folded. It was a lot more trash and recycling then I thought it would be. Our cardboard recycling bin was already full but by the time we were done it was overflowing and falling onto the floor. Oops! I’m not sorry. Lol. 🙂
Acadia also wanted to help and walked over everything. Played with some of the toys too. She also played in the bag my friend E set out for her and tried to get in some of the shoeboxes. At one point I placed her in the 2-4 year old bucket. She was happy.
We will be getting together on the 30th for m birthday. But I hope to get together again in Nov and finish packing the rest of the boxes.
