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?

We donate toys to Toys for Tots. We haven't bought any items yet but that's what we'll be doing this weekend. I have 3 kids and they will each get to pick out one item at the store to donate to child who is their age.

We actually done this a few weeks ago.  We do this before birthdays and Christmas.  They got rid of a bunch of stuffed animals and some "toddler toys."  We took some to the Pre-K at their school and others to a thrift store.

We have set aside several large trucks, walking/talking dinosaurs, and a fairly new train because I am trying to teach the children that it is plain greedy to have so many toys when so many have none.  I will go over this again with them from the perspective of what charity to give them to.  I wish I knew of one that took toys in like new condition to give to children, rather than to sell.

Every year we have our daughter pick out a few things to buy and then donate.  We haven't done it this year yet but last year she picked a nailpolish kit, a soccer ball, some board games, and a Barbie.  

We are in the process of moving right now so most of her things are boxed up, we will however be picking out some to donate when we unpack.
