Here’s is the second 10-14 year old girl box I’ve packed for this year. (You can see the first one here). I have exceeded my goal of 6 boxes packed this year! This is my 7th box!
It has the hygiene items that every box gets (soap, washcloth, toothbrushes, toothpaste) and because it’s for the older child category, I included deodorant. It has the basics – school supplies, markers and crayons and a coloring book. And I included stickers, a card game, small craft kit, a storybook, a puzzle, and a stuffed toy.
I really hope she (whoever she will be) will like this box!
