Creative Play Challenge Day 10: Give the Gift of Giving!

Posted by   + Show Post

Have your children go through their entire toy inventory and designate a pile to give away to those in need. Personally work with your child to identify the charity you will donate to. The more your children give to others, the less focused they will be on what they personally receive!

What toy or toys did you child choose to donate?

Same here

My son's a little young to understand this. But we will be donating some of his toys to Goodwill. He has too many toys and they're in great shape.

We donate the toys they outgrow to my job at the YMCA. The kids in afterschool care appreciate the new playthings and I get joy out of seeing them happy.

we gave a big bucket full of stuffed animals and other odds and ends to the good will. We also went through baby toys and gave a baby doll, and a few other toys to a friends baby

My daughter chose to donate a couple of old games and a few stuffed toys.  We also purchased some Memory games at the toy store, when they were on sale, to donate for children for the holidays.

Thank You for this fun Creative Play Every Day Challenge series!

I do this before every Birthday and Christmas.


This year, the boys donated all but 1 each of their RC cars, their RC Ironman, some Thomas the Train stuff (track sets and 3 engines), GEO Trax, Trio Blocks, some of those Hotwheels playsets, and a bunch of clothes.
