Ok can some one help me.. I'm looking for a care package.. Well a couple actually. One for my family and one put together to help a group I'm helping.
I'm trying to put together small care packages together this year.

Were also looking for the little $0.25 machine toys that are no long wanted or needed. And anything else that can be used towards arts and crafting.

My 7 yr old does have mental problems and as recommended by doctors, I am supposed to bring in the "Special Therapy" for her to express her feelings and moods. Basically my daughter is bi-polar, my youngest thank god isn't. As a way to prevent early use of medication the doctors want to get her to express her self in a constructive way instead of a destructive way. During the first part of school till about the last 2 months of school she is able to do so. Seems once she knows school is winding down she starts to spiral in a way. And gets out of control. Even at home, she gets bored with her self and others and doesn't allow her feelings to get out so they build till she explodes.

Anyways as an outlet were trying Art as the therapy since it works at school and when I had the supplies it works at home too!

This is stuff we need for our own personal use and a few of the crafts made will be donated towards the care packages I am putting together myself J
