February Item of the Month for OCC Shoeboxes ~ Accessories

Operation Christmas Child Item of the Month:  Accessories
Samaritan's Purse has suggested items of the month for packing Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes, and for February it is accessories...like jewelry, watches, hair bows, etc.  These are fun extras to add to a box.  They often don't take up much room, so can be a fun way to add more items in the limited space of an OCC shoebox!

Accessories can be on the more practical side-sunglasses, watches, headbands to keep hair out of the way or toward the more fun side like jewelry.  As a child accessories can make one feel special
and cool!  You could also send kits for girls to make their own jewelry!  One way to be able to afford to send more is to split up multi-packs,  find items on clearance, or craft your own!  Here's a tutorial for a fun way to crochet a cute hair scrunchy, and if their hair isn't long enough it can become a bracelet:
