A Quick Idea From Zoe’s Corner

Start Saving Those Toys!

You know those silly toys that come with every fast food kids’ meal?  It turns out that kids love them!  Who knew?

As parents, we all know that if you have more than one child, there is a chance of getting duplicate toys; or a particular toy that your child just doesn’t care for because of a personal preference; or an instance when you just can’t handle having one more of those little things lying around the house.

If you find yourself identifying with these scenarios, keep the toy in its unopened bag and save it for the closest children’s charity, whether it is a children’s home, shelter or hospital.  These toys don’t cost you any extra money since they come with the meal you are purchasing and they can bring a smile to a child that may be ill or facing hard times.

And, if you are so inclined, you can even enlist the help of friends and family in collecting the unwanted toys so you can drop off a larger load all at one time. All it takes is a small box to collect them in and a quick trip over to the local charity.

So start gathering up those toys and make a few kids smile! 🙂
