VBS day 2: 10 Boxes

Day 2 of VBS and the kids have brought in 10 shoeboxes worth of items! It's so exciting to see some of the things they are picking out for the shoeboxes!
Here's our meter. Prizes at 40, 60, 75, and 100 boxes!!
 And here's the collection box for our items! Bring your toys, shool supplies, and essentials and place them here so we can count them up!! You kids are awesome!!


  1. Hi! I just found your blog and am excited to see another OCC blog. I've added your blog to my list of OCC blogs on my blog: Simply Shoe Boxes.

    I love your collection center. We collect in AWANA each fall. I took cartons from printer paper and wrapped the top and bottom separately to look like a giant shoe box. Oh, but first I cut a large hole in the top leaving about 3 inches around each side so the items could be dropped in the hole--like packing a shoe box.

    How did you make the large graphic for the top?

    1. Thank you for adding my blog. I appreciate it so much! I love to get the word out about shoeboxes!
      For the top logo, I used an overhead projector to trace the outline of the logo onto a large piece of cardboard and then hand painted it and cut it out with an exacto knife. It took about 9 hours or a little mor from start to finish, but totally worth it!! I hope to be able to use it for a long time!

  2. LOL, I have been at your blog before--I just didn't remember for sure. Anyways, I had forgotten to bookmark it or add it to my OCC list at my blog so I forgot I had been here. Nothing wrong with my mind. :-)
