Every year for the past few years we have taken part in 'Operation Christmas Child', the world's largest Christmas project. The idea is to decorate and fill with new, practical gifts a medium sized shoe box, place a £3 donation and secure box with an elastic band. It is a lovely idea to decorate and discuss with your child what you may place in the box, deciding if it is to go to a boy or a girl and of which age group. The boxes are then dropped off at school by latest 14th November. Samaritan's Purse, the charity that handles Operation Christmas will then send the boxes to children in need around the world. The children at Little Cherubs watch a short film at nursery which shows them where and to whom the shoeboxes go. It helps them to appreciate our lives of plenty and be compassionate towards those in need.
