I went shopping at my local Wal Mart for the items for my kit. I had made a small list of items that I was sure that I wanted to include. The rest of the stuff I was just going to figure out while browsing. The things that were on my list included
- Bottled Water
- Rechargeable batteries
These cute colorful hats were only $.64, so I grabbed three of them. You really can't beat a price like that. I didn't see any kids gloves though, so I kept on going.
Every child loves getting new toothbrushes, so I picked up two of these sets of two. Great price, less than a dollar for two brushes, plus they are fun and colorful. If a family is in need, they might be struggling to pay their bills or provide food for their family so simple care items may not be the number one thing on their list.
I knew I wanted to include some flashlights in the kit, but the only ones my Wal Mart had were ones that already came with batteries. I grabbed two but I knew I would have to get some rechargeable batteries to go with them.
I grabbed these Energizer rechargeable batteries but there was one more thing missing....
I knew that what every family needs to make it through cold weather is some fever reducer and some nice warm socks! The socks were on sale too, woo-hoo! I of course, got some water, granola bars and gloves, if you want to see my entire shop you can visit my Google + album by clicking here
After I got home we put every thing into a nice blue gift bag that the kids decorated with snowflakes, and its all ready to go get donated!
Here is the finished product, had to re-pack it twice because I kept forgetting to include some items lol. Finally got everything to fit and ready to go!
