How to Pack a Shoebox


Find a Shoebox

Start with a shoebox about the size of an A4 piece of paper. If you want to wrap it, cover the box and lid separately.

If you can’t find a shoebox this size, order a preprinted shoebox.


Girl or Boy?

Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category: 2–4, 5–9, or 10–14.


Fill with Gifts

Select a medium to large “wow” item such as a soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal, then fill with other fun toys, hygiene items and school supplies.
