** Don’t forget your WOW item, this should be something the child opens and first sees! Something that makes them hug the item and feel loved!

case $1 per pack

      Wow that just makes my heart so happy! Thank you so much for commenting. I had hoped my list could bless someone else or even a church (that is awesome) by having everything in one spot! It is easy to forget where to buy certain items etc. Thank you so much again! Blessings from Buffalo, NY! <3
