Busy Boxes

Our newest project for All Hands On Dec Friends is BUSY BOXES!!

And we need help collecting oddsand ends to make the BUSY BOXES to hand out to the little people in the oncology wards at the localgovernment hospitals. We are going to put together a wonderful collection of stuff to keep the handsbusy to pass the time while in those beds waiting for treatment and for healing. Please shout when youhave something for us, and we will arrange collection or delivery at a convenient place. Please pass toall your work colleagues, cos many hands do make light work, and we will be amazed at what we can digup at home. Once again, this is inspired by our bestest and most precious angel Declan, who has andcontinues to ripple it far and wide :-)
We need the following please –
Ice-cream containers, (that everything will go into) - we all have these in our homes and wish we couldput all of them to good use... ;-)
Website cutouts (www.familyfun.com)
Craft foam
Beads and buttonsS
Colouring in pages or books
Magazine pages for kids to cut-out
Elastic bands
Scrapbooking bits and pieces
Play dough
Scraps of fabric
Pieces of pretty paper and cardboard
Pieces of ribbon
Pretty little jewellery boxes that could be decorated
Small paint sets
Something that can be painted - eg - small wooden picture frames / plaster of paris type
Pritt-type glue sticks, or any glue in fact that will be good for craft type work
Small toys
Crayons / pencil / wax / khoki
Anything else that you can think of that is nice to while away time with something special that you canfind for the littler people cos they cannot use scissors etc, and we would love to give them somethingspecial.
Thanks all for reading this far, and cannot wait to start getting your emails back letting me know that youhave some STUFF for this project...

Oh this sounds like a wonderful project! Wish I was there to help get it all organized. I know how much these things help Connor while he is at clinic-they would get even more use for the kids actually stuck at the hospital for long periods of time. Especially glitter-it is so fun :-) Still praising our Lord for Deqlan's test results-I think of you all everyday and keep you close in my prayers.
