When I was asked to participate in this Target Holiday Toy program, I was excited about the idea of getting toys for my daughter, Annie. But as the days went by, I started to feel guilty. I looked at the pile of toys I’d already bought her for Christmas morning (I’m an early shopper), and I realized she really didn’t need anymore toys. So, I decided to take the opportunity to teach Annie about giving to others. Annie and I went to Target and I had her pick out a bunch of toys to donate to kids who are less fortunate.
She had so much fun running around, grabbing toys. She hasn’t asked me once about the toys since I bought them, which makes me think the experience of buying the toys was just as fun to her as actually playing with them.
I am leaning towards donating these to Toys For Tots, but if you have other suggestions, please leave them in the comments! I’m looking forward to Annie coming with me to drop off our donation.
Do you know a deserving family, school, or charity this holiday season? We’re giving away one grand set of 20 toys from Target, including those mentioned in this post! To nominate, simply comment and tell us why you’ve selected them!
