Playschool Shoeboxes!

On Monday we made Christmas shoeboxes for kids in other countries.

Mrs. E told us that there were kids far away that have never gotten a Christmas present.

She told us that the shoebox presents we send may be the only Christmas present a child has ever gotten. Mrs. E said the best part is that each child who gets a shoebox will also learn that the very best gift of all is Jesus and that He loves each of us very much.

We wanted to help. Here are some of the things we brought:

Some things were hard to give up!

But it was so exciting to give them to a child who needed it that it was hard to sit still!

We all got a turn to put in our presents.
