Our church is handing out Good Samaritan Purses (boxes) http://www.samaritanspurse.org/ for us to fill and bring back. I didn't do it last year and felt sad about it later. The boxes aren't huge and it doesn't take a lot to fill one. So I grabbed one! I'm doing it for a little girl age 2-4.
I included some suckers, tootsie rolls and peperment sticks, these are things Lane can eat! I put in some samples (I hope this isn't tacky) that I had for Huggies bath and body wash (I figured I could include more items if not everything was store bought). There is enough for a week's worth of baths. I put in a blue fuzzy teddybear and some little noise maker toys. I put in some cute colored rings, a pair of chenile gloves, and little beauty kit that includes a mirror, comb, brush and an aloofa with it's on storage unit.
I am going to get a few items at walmart: Coloring book and crayons, hairbows/ties, toothbrush and some toothpaste.
I put in two pairs of socks that I crochet beads around the edge (size 3-5 years). One is pink the other is purple. I am also going to knit up a little pink hat (with fun fur if I have the right color) to include.
I'm not sure what else to include in this box. I'm not thinking much else will fit in there! Please if someone thinks the samples of the shampoo/body wash is tacky, PLEASE tell me! I don't want to look like a total goof!
I think I might include a little christmas letter/card (I will hand make it) in there for the receipent and her parents! I know she wont be able to read, but she might enjoy a little letter telling her about her items and a bit about our family!
