OCC DIY sewing kits

This week we’re talking all about what to put in your Operation Christmas Child box this year.  Think about filling our shoe boxes with not only fun things for the kids, but also practical things they can use to help their families.  Sewing kits can be really helpful for the older age group kids and the kits don’t need to take up a lot of space in the box.

What to make a sewing kit:

Empty Altoids Tin (decorate ideas)
Multiple Needles
Thread
Buttons
Straight Pins
Safety Pins
Tape Measure

What are some of the things you include in your OCC boxes?

      Many hotels offer complimentary sewing kits and leave in the hotel rooms. Just empty the contents into the tin box.

      Sometimes you can find kits like this in the $1 section at Rite Aid and CVS. Just put the contents in a small container. I also keep on of these in all our glove boxes. You never know when you might need to fix a tear or even pick a splinter out of a child’s finger.
