|Boo Boo Bear's Mission|
The kids watched the slide show with us then moved to the back of the room (with a temporary divider) to have some fun with our childcare team. After they enjoyed dinner together, they created their own picnic scenes using these cute sticker kits from Oriental Trading Company.
A volunteer then read a book titled BooBoo Bear's Mission, a cute true story of a teddy bear who travels to Iraq to carry a Family's love until they can be together again. Each child then received an adorable "Battalion Buddy" from the amazing group, Operation Gratitude. Each box contained a stuffed animal in camoflauge plus two boxes of Girl Scout cookies. If your FRG hasn't ordered these before and your Soldiers are deployed, contact them today! It's a great deal and the kids were thrilled with their gifts!
