Christmas Shoe Boxes

  Fill a shoe box with love this Christmas!

christmas boxes and puppet show 2013 012-w800-h600It may seem too early to be wrapping presents for Christmas but the power of a simple gift was given by children at Park School , Dartington this week. They filled colourfully wrapped shoe boxes with small presents. These were toys, soaps, tooth brushes, warm clothes and (most importantly!) love. The boxes will be transported to children around the world, who would otherwise have nothing for Christmas this year. We talked to the children about giving good toys from their own bedrooms rather than buying all of the presents so that they realised the power of giving. And we made sure that the boxes had a whole heap of love in them too!’
