Planning to pack an Operation Christmas Child box this year? The time is quickly approaching when you need to turn them in! To get ready here are some quality items you can get from Amazon.

Keep in mind… OCC boxes are not junk drawers. Buy things you’d want to buy for your kids! Try to avoid things with sizes too (t-shirts, shoes, etc.) as you don’t know what size the child receiving the box will need. Don’t forget to add a personal note and picture of your family.

      Last year we did boxes for an older girl and boy. I included a sewing kit for the girl with some fabric and a tool kit for the boy.
