There are fairly strict rules about what you can and can't send, but the idea is that in every box a child will find some sort of toy, something educational like stationary, a hygiene item like a toothbrush and other small things like sweeties, gloves hairclips etc.
This year we sent two boxes - one for a buy and one for a girl. Sadly I didn't get a chance to include anything handmade this time round, but here's hoping whichever children get these boxes will like what they find when they look inside.
If you want to find out more about Operation Christmas Child then why not hop on over to their website. Or visit the wonderful Forty Percent Fringe: Sixty Percent Face and Wild Olive blogs who have also done boxes this year.
Did you join in with Operation Christmas Child? I'd love to know what you sent if you did!
