October Nature Seekers 4 H Meeting

Last year in October we went to a local church and did a Operation Christmas Child packing day.  This church has a huge Operation Christmas Child ministry and has work days to pack OCC boxes.  The children really enjoyed it and asked to go back again this year so I scheduled us another day to go pack boxes.

I had a really small group of children.  We had one out sick and one family that couldn't make it at the last minute so we only had 7 children and one adult.  We worked in assembly line style packing boxes for 5-7 year old boys.  Each box got a notebook, coloring book, crayons, pencils and pencil sharpener, comb, washcloth and soap, toothbrush, t-shirt, bouncy ball, car, stuffed animal, and Christmas card.  They worked really hard and fast and in one hour had packed 230 boxes!
