occ diy construction kit

Another easy kit we have to go into the Operation Christmas Child is the construction kit.  I saw a DIY construction kit last year when I was helping at the Operation Christmas Child distribution center and decided I should try it out.

What you need to make a DIY Construction Kit:

Empty Pill Bottle
Nails
Small Hammer

Put the nails in the bottle and include a small hammer in the box.  Storing them in the bottle or even a tin box keeps them from tearing up anything else in the box.  If you have extra room add in some rope too!

This is perfect for the older boy age group.

      I recommend adding a small tape measure.

        Good idea!

      I would check to see that the nails are an allowable item before compiling the kits.

        I checked on their website and it is allowed. Hope this helps!
