Must haves.

Do you have specific items that you add to every box your pack?

Here's a run down of my Must Haves.

Hygiene-Wash cloth, soap (in a ziploc bag) toothbrush.
* I try to add a comb to every box. But I make sure girls for sure have combs.

School Supplies-Pencils, eraser, pens, pencil sharpener, crayons/markers or pencil crayons and Paper or coloring book.
*older kids I add sissors.

Stuffed Animal.
Every child deserves to have something sweet and cuddly.

Toys- Ball
Boys- car and yo-yo or slinky or marbles

Girls- jewelry, hair accessories, skipping rope.

Clothing-I like to add one piece of clothing per box.
Footwear, underwear and shirts are some of my favorites.

And a ziploc bag of hard candy.

What are some of your Must Haves?


  1. Each of our boxes contain a bar of soap (double bagged), toothpaste, toothbrush, comb, a couple wash cloths, 2 forks, a stuffed animal, crayons, pencils, erasers, and a notepad.

    Then depending on age and gender they each get a couple toys/books/crafty things/hair things.

  2. I must give each oldest girl a sewing kit & hair stuff. I must give each oldest boy tools, bungy, rope/cording. I always include pencils/pens, some kind of notebook, candy. I now love to include a pc of clothing &/or shoes &/or socks.
