Pencil Packs all you need to bulk order – listed in ONE PLACE!! Operation Christmas Child (OCC)

Pencil Packs all you need to bulk order – listed in ONE PLACE!!

You all know how passionate I am about Operation Christmas Child! Every year my family and friends commit to putting together more! SO I have mixed my passion for OCC with my passion for saving money – and I have learned how to get bulk supplies, quality supplies at the lowest rates possible over the past 8 years! I enjoy putting these posts together to help other shoebox packers like myself save money so that MORE children can be impacted with more shoeboxes spreading the love of Jesus to more and more children! AMEN!

What to include & where to find it in bulk:

***(You will see some Affiliate links below in the posted article. FDD may receive a small %, with no cost to you, if purchased through link provided.)****

144 pencils for only $8.43 (after using subscribe & save) perfect to grab for your kids classroom, filling up backpack charities or donations!! It makes them $0.08 a pencil!HERE. Some people enjoy sending pens as well. Pens are pretty easy to find depending on the amount you’d like to send. 🙂 Here is a big bulk deal of 500 pens from Dollar days or options for 144 pens at Amazon in BIC brand, or even check eBay for deals onmisprinted Pens & sometimes you can get pretty lucky!!
Ticonderoga pencils are also super popular because they are incredibly durable and last a long time. They jump on sale every once again on Amazon. Be sure to check those out!

With pencils, you’ll want to include a sharpener! I have used THESE type for many years. I usually include 2, just in case one fails. The top doesn’t always stay on, but they do work very well! However, some people perfer spending a little more money and buying THESE sharpeners. They are a bit more heavy duty and can fit 2 sized pencils! I have heard great feedback about them!

Scissors are difficult to find for a good price year round. Most people I have talked to, find their scissors in the walmart clearance isles. Checkout Walmart clearance HERE. The walmarts around me, never seem to have a good clearance section however. So I have had to stick to Dollar Tree scissors for $0.50 each. Dollar Days also carries a nice bulk scissor option, at $0.43 cents a pair of a case of 500+ which is perfect for bulk! Amazon also has some decent sales on scissors if you catch them at the right time!
*** NEW SCISSOR FIND on Amazon — currently only $0.38 each at the time of post!!! I WOULD RUN and grab these, don’t know how long this price will stick around!

Including rulers and calculators are always a great addition. Again this goes to the packers discretion as to whether to include or not. If you do include a calculator like these ones (which through stories likes this one through OCC, have been deemed valuable for the recipients and their families to conduct business transactions!!) I would definitely recommend solar vs. batteries, to avoid more garbage and so they do not need to replace them! 🙂 Rulers are great because they are FLAT and do not take up any space at all. They can use them for math, drawing etc. These short 6in ones are only $0.16 each or 12 inc. rulers are $0.21 each.  Or grab these FULL SIZE ones from amazon — a 60 pack for about $0.33 each!
Based on some feedback – PROTRACTORS are a great addition too. Some use instead of rulers and some include both. The nice thing about protractors is they are multi-use and actually have more uses than a ruler! Find a sweet 28 pack from Amazon here! 

Time for the GLUESTICKS, because just like cutting paper… glueing projects is JUST as fun! These make doing arts and crafts doable for a lot of children you may not have had the opportunity! I prefer elmers over other brands bc they don’t dry out as quickly and some cheaper brands don’t “GLUE” very well.. seriously! I know some other brands may be slightly cheaper and I am totally ok with others including those   If you prefer elmers like myself, these are $0.20 each  at the time of posting!  

Erasers can be up to the preference of the sender. Some love the pencil top erasers(I have gotten this exact brand from Amazon for several years, they are great quality and I have never been disappointed!), the big chunky pink erasers you can find HERE in bulk! I have also used the DOLLARDAYS website for ordering many things for my shoeboxes. You do have to pay shipping unless you buy a minimum amount (which changes depends on the sale). However, if you speak to a customer service rep, they will often give you a discount % if you tell them you are using for charity!


And I’ll end with PENCIL POUCHES!! It is difficult to find a good price for pencil pouches in bulk. BUT I found these SUPER HERO pencil pouches on Alli-express for $0.68 each, OR these adorable animal pouches are only $0.64 each. You can order 1 at a time, just make sure you order enough ahead because it takes a couple months to get here. Good if you need 5-10!   —–>>>> Moving on to BULK pencil pouches. The best I could find was at Dollar Days and range b/w $0.56-$0.81 depending on how many you order. They come in neutral colors, or the pinks/purples version!

Pencil Pouches is another if you only have a few to buy, watch sales in September, sometimes you can find them for about $0.50-$0.99 in get ready for school season sales!! I actually opted to make my own pencil pouches using ziploc bags and duct tape! I hope to make a post on this in the future! <3


Another piece of feedback was to include paper clips! They are cheap and can be used for many things! For school, papers, as tools or even to fold and bend as toys! OR you can actually make a FISHING HOOK from a paper clip or safety pin!! You can get 30 boxes of 100 ct per box HERE for the BEST bulk deal! OR 10 boxes of 100 ct. HERE! Binder clips are another fantastic idea to add to the boxes! Not only for the obvious school benefit, but they can be super strong to clip up clothes to dry or even a tarp or covering! Binder clips are a FANTASTIC idea to include!!

Colored Pencils, Crayons, Notebooks and MORE I have found to have the best luck at  WALMART at the beginning of School in August/September depending on where you live! I definitely encourage you to include these as those can bring so much joy to a child, they take great pride in their school supplies!! This is a bulk set of 800 Crayola Crayons that teacher’s rave about. You can grab this box and divy them up into baggies for the shoeboxes! Always an option if you miss a back to school sale!

OR if you’d like pre-packaged crayons – check this one out on Amazon. 144 packs of 4 crayons! If 4 is not enough, add 2 or 3 packs! 😀 They can share with a sibling or a friend! 144 packs at the time of posting!

—-> Make sure to remove ALL SUPPLIES from their PACKAGING!! NO packaging need to be sent in the shoeboxes! OCC has made this very clear as most regions where the shoeboxes land they do not have a proper way to get rid of trash. So even if you think it makes them look pretty and new, it ends up polluting the area! Please do the region a favor and properly recycle it here! 😀 

Once you get those pencils, you’ll definitely want and need to sharpen them. Yes you include sharpeners, but it is definitely nice for the kiddos to at least have a few sharpened so they can use them right away!!

If you have large batches of pencils to sharpen before sending like I do (2000 to be exact) check this deal out. I read the reviews throughly and just placed my order as it can handle large batches & doesn’t overheat, sharpens to the tip and stops so you don’t over sharpen, accommodates different sized pencils and accommodates a large amount of shavings! (This info is per the reviews) —-> It’s on sale for $36 off!!

How to save Big Bucks next Birthday, Christmas, Wedding or Holiday!

How to save BIG BUCKS when you celebrate the next Birthday, Anniversary, Wedding or Holiday….

Buying cards for every occasion ADDS up when you think about it! Cards are such a nice sentiment, I would never tell you to not send a card to be frugal, but when you are spending $4 to sometimes $6 a card, that adds up without you even realizing it! Read on….

(**I was compensated for this post. This post also contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.**)

DID you know???

There are over 6,500 Dollar Tree stores nationwide and on August 30th every store will carry Expressions from Hallmark, $1 each and Heartline a Hallmark company, 2 for $1. With hundreds of new greeting cards to choose from, you can celebrate every moment with your friends and family without breaking the bank!

You can get basically any theme you would like to. There are Happy Birthday, Christmas, Halloween, other holidays, Anniversary, Wedding, Baby, Congratulations, Thank you, Mother’s/Father’s/Grandparents Day, Get Well and more!

AND did I mention Hallmark has Disney options! You know anything with Disney is usually at least double or triple the price. Nope! These were still only $1!! WOW! We love Disney in our house, and love giving Disney cards for birthdays to other friends! So I definitely grabbed some of those!

These are not cheap flimsy  cards, that you would think would cost you $0.50-$1 each. They are the same quality that in a Rite Aid or Walgreens or CVS are $3.89!!! WHAT — in an pharmacy-like stores they are almost $4! So you KNOW these are high quality. AND see my pic on the right. I did my best to take a picture of the shimmery, glittered cardstock front of the card. I was very impressed. They don’t feel like paper folded in half and actually have embellishments as well!

I was thrilled to find even sweet faith filled cards from the Joyfully Yours collection which features Christian sentiments and scripture. These are my favorite cards, that can be uplifting, supportive and encouraging.  I could not be happier to a wide selection to choose from!

Even more cards at the Dollar Tree!!

—> On August 30th, the following cards will also be available at select stores:

for kids/families this summer!

Teaching Children to leave a Path of Kindness – One RAK at a time!! <3


FREEBIE: Keep track of which ones you complete this summer!

You’ve been RAK-ed FREE Printable!

Download this FREE PRINTABLE PDF – we would LOVE to know where our RAKs take you! <3



***(You will see some Affiliate links below in the posted article. FDD may receive a small %, with no cost to you, if purchased through link provided.)****
1. Knit a hat – for your local NICU, Children’s hospital or OCC
I love this one. As a recipient of a knitted hat in the NICU, such a small act of kindness made such an impact to our family and our newest addition. It was something from outside the hospital walls and something that brought a smile to my face when I saw it. NICU babies must wear a cap to keep their heat in so they are greatly needed! OR Operation Christmas Child would love to accept your knitted hat, scarf, gloves, socks for their shoeboxes. They go to kids who most likely do not receive any gifts at Christmas, they also get to hear all about the love that Jesus has for them so it is a WIN WIN! If you need an address to send them to, please contact me, and I can give you that info! Either would be such a huge blessing!! Don’t know how to knit? There are so many GREAT KITS that make it easy for you, step by step instructions and everything you need to create them! Looms small enough for infants HERE.

2. Mow your neighbor’s lawn
This one is easy! Give your neighbors a break and do their lawn for them. This is especially helpful to the elderly especially when there is a heat wave and it’s too dangerous to do it themselves! Or surprise a neighbor when they are out of town. What a treat to come home to!

3. Walk a friend’s dog

Give the dog a nice outing while giving you both some exercise! And give those Doggie parents a break! Get some snuggles & smooches from a pooch and boost those endorphins and get the blood moving!

4. Pick up litter/trash at your local park
Another easy one, but one that makes a HUGE impact! Get outside, get some vitamin D and give back to your community! Make it a challenge to your kids. Who can fill up their bags the fastest OR if we all fill our bags we will go get ice-cream!

5. Leave quarters at 5 vending machines games with a RAK note 
This one has been popular for doing RAK during Christmas time. It’s time for Christmas in JUNE Or JULY! AND This one can be fun for kids and adults! Make some little kids day and leave a quarter to get a bouncy ball or giant gum ball! YUM! AND/OR leave a dollar on an adult machine! Nothing makes you smile more than getting some FREE swedish fish on a bad day. Or how about that Diet Coke?!

6. Buy a lottery ticket for the parents of 5 children to invest in their future
This is kind of an “out there” idea. And it could just be something fine to give to another adult or parent. It’s up to you if you let them know if they win it is for something. Hey, if I won a $50 for my kids future education I would be thrilled and would definitely consider that a RAK!

7. Leave drinks & snacks for your garbage people/ package delivery people on a hot day
This picture says it all! Someone on FB decided to share their RAK and it went viral! Luckily this viral post is spreading joy and kindness! <3 Some cool drinks, water, and FUN snack packs to fill your bucket!!

8. Host a garage sale & donate a % of your proceeds to your charity
Declutter and raise money for a local charity at the same time. Make it a game, who can find the most stuff to sell in the sale, OR who can make the most money in the sale for the charity. Come together as a family to decide what charity should be donated to. Teaching your kids about donating, decluttering, giving away their things and supporting good = DOUBLE WIN!

9. Host a Lemonade stand & giveaway drinks to your community

10. Write a thank you note & leave a gift card or a craft for your postal worker
One of the most unappreciated jobs. And are we not the first to complain when a package is missing or rained on or bent or broken. But do we ever say thank you for the 85% of the time
doing it correctly. And let’s be honest your postal worker is genuinely doing the best they can to ensure your mail and packages are taken care of. Let’s remember to thank them!!

11. Make a sand creation paper weight for a relative with a desk job

12. Braid a friendship bracelet & give a matching one away
So many great options to make these! You can simply grab some skeins of embroidery thread(which are pretty cheap!) and braid away. Or use boondoogle (which is even cheaper!) or grab a kit that comes with letters and spell out their name! This one is extra special for kids to do for each other! Make it a parent kiddo date & think about who’s day you could make with the bracelet!

13. Make a time capsule with a grandparent
This is so much fun for a kiddo and grandparent. Instruct both to collect some of their favorite trinkets, photos, and games. Have each the grandparent and the child pick different things of importance to put in it. Make a record of what and why they were added. Set a date for it to be opened!!

14. Become a penpal with someone in the military
How special would this be. It makes me tear up just envisioning a soldier opening a thank you card from someone they do not know. Find someone to thank in the military HERE . OR find someone to become a penpal with! I am sure many many many of our soldiers are incredibly lonely and some may not have anyone writing to them. Find a penpal and a friend for life! 

15. Make a care package for a military member or college student

This goes along with the one above. Adopt a military personto send a package to or send a package to a cousin, neice, nephew or friend. Find some FUN care packages HERE. 

16. Hand out balloons to moms with kids at your local Target or grocery store w/RAK note
Make a Moms day by making their shopping trip just a little easier! Nothing occupies a kiddo like a balloon, while enabling a Mommy to be able to focus on shopping! PLUS added perk, tie the ballon on their wrist and you won’t lose them in the store! LOL

17. Go to the SPCA and play with animals, take them for walks
If you’re an animal lover this one is for you! Check out where your local SPCA /Animal Shelter HERE – head on over with some extra loving! The SPCA loves donations of animal food, cat litter or treats as well. So make sure you check out my FB page for a DEAL on these items to bring or find some HERE to donate.  If you don’t have the cash no problem, shelters love having volunteers play, snuggle and walk their animals!!

18. Adopt a Grandparent at a Nursing home that you could visit weekly/monthly
Other people who need love, are the elderly. When I attended my college, this was a program that I participated in. It meant absolutely the world to these loving grandparents who often were lonely and went long periods of time without being visited! Find an adopt a grandparent program near you! 

19. Bring beach balls/kids sunglasses to pass out at the beach
How much fun would this be… grab a pack of beach balls, oriental trading always has some cheap packages, blow them up and make a kiddo or families day. Sunglasses work too!

20. Paint rocks and leave them somewhere to make someone’s day!
This is a double fun activity! Not only do you get to do something creative, but how fun to leave for someone else to stumble upon! Let them be inspirational, cute or funny! Paint an animal or write a word! Some communities have groups on FB where people search for others people have done and it becomes a scavenger hunt! What a FUN and CHEAP summer activity!

21. Bring a coffee on a playdate, meeting or church to give to other kiddos parents 
As a Mom, I can tell you how crazy it can be being a parent. Somedays I am lucky to remember to grab my phone out the door…or my own kid! Let alone get myself a coffee! What a blessing to someone to grab them a coffee… add a donut to that, and you will have someone’s heart smiling ALL DAY!
—> If you are a Mom yourself, and don’t have time to grab a coffee for you or anyone else, what about grabbing a few $5 gift cards to give to those Mom’s who are up all night feeding those babies, or running around after all those kiddos! Keep them in your wallet, and pass it out when you see a desperate Mom in need!

22. Record a video or song or dance & send to an out of town relative
Why not give some joy of seeing their grand kid, niece or nephew sing a song or do a dance! Or videos of them doing a crazy jump contest into a pool! I know as an Aunt, and from grandparents experience, nothing lights up the day like an unexpected video or picture! Give those iphones some good use!

23. Go through your closets & donate unused items to charity
Do your closets look like mine? They are jam-packed and need some HELP!! Get some of that extra weight on your shoulders, and weight in your closet out of your home and donate to a great cause! Clean your closets organize your situation. Salvation army is always a favorite AND you can claim them on your taxes! It’s a win – win – win.
24. Bring a game & pick me up items – bring to your local Children’s hospital w/RAK note
Rock tic – tac – toe game HERE
