Yes, Bev.  At my age the simpler I can keep it the better!  ;)

Well done, Jeanne for finding a quicker, simpler solution to dressing up the sox...was thinking only yesterday...better you than me crocheting trim (not that i would have been crocheting...haven't done that in about 40 yrs. lol) around them...just wouldn't have the patience. The buttons and ribbon sound like a great alternative and a lot less headache!

(that's trims on the kids socks, I mean. Just included in case anyone else wants to try it)

I found some lightweight but well made skipping ropes in the dollar store and will be sending them shortly.  One is extra long so several kids can use it at once.  Communal games are always great ideas for kids. I even found a magnetic pocket Ludo/Parcheesi game I'm slipping in somewhere. Four kids can play that at once. I love treasure hunting! (oh doing crochet trims was a pain so I put ribbon bows on them instead, plus on two I put fancy cat buttons, on the outside edges, looks cute and I had no clue what to do with those buttons for ages. Works great on the socks! :)

Terrific assortment of goodies Bev, all will be most welcome I am sure!

What a great selection of "slip-ins" Bev :)

Comment by Sue Gillman on March 2, 2012 at 7:56pm

Wow! You did well to find all these. Thechildren in SA will be delighted.I remember quite a while back we had a run on skipping ropes as slip ins because they were so popular.

Thanks Christine...it's hard to find something interesting, but light (for postage) and that may be played with by more than one child.

Thank you, Jeanne and Kathy. :)

I tried to put everything into 1 post pack but couldn't fit them all in. Have put these in with the stripey jumper and 2 hats...squares to go into other parcel...but thanks for that tip for future reference, Kathy, I hadn't thought to make sure slip ins go in with things on the list so I would know they arrived.

What a fabulous selection - some very lucky children indeed! make sure you put some squares or a hat etc: in with these so you will see when your parcel is received on the list, otherwise you won't know. I always do this when sending books, socks, toys etc: so I know for certain it has arrived safely!

These will make a really exciting parcel Bev, you are so kind xx
