|These are the best kind! Sturdy and least likely to break or tear!|
I will be emailing all of you who want to participate in the ziploc bag drive for the orphanage children. However, it won't be until at least late this weekend. Working full-time right now and no free time at all until after 2pm this Sunday. Thank you so much for expressing interest, everyone! I'll be in touch! For now, you can have fun brain-storming what you might want to include! Here's an idea-generating list that I cut and pasted:
pencils, pens, stationary, hair elastics, small toiletries, soap, postcards, photos, small toys, lip balm, stickers, a harmonica, beanie babies, gum, comb, matchbox cars, marbles, checkers, yo-yos, dominoes, solar calculators, nail polish, mints, solar flashlights, craft items, sewing kits, necklaces, bracelets, silly bands, little lego packs, small dolls, scotch tape, crayons, erasers, rulers, scented lotions, embroidery thread ( used to make bracelets), silly putty, glitter, sea shells, balloons, candy that won't melt, colorful socks, playing cards, modeling clay, plastic animals, coin purses, wallets, and anything else you can think of! What they enjoy most of all is a card or letter and photos included. It's easy to translate something into Russia by using an online translator. Include your handwritten note or letter and than staple the translation to it.
If you have any great ideas to add to this list, please post a comment!
