Building a Birthday Box: A Step-by-Step Guide

This article contains a video with step-by-step instructions for collecting items and building Birthday Boxes.

Collecting items and assembling Birthday Boxes is a super fun activity. However, it can be a little tricky. The boxes that we use are approximately 12" x 8" x 4" - that's just a bit larger than a shoe box. Once you start to fill the boxes with some basics, fitting meaningful gifts into the boxes requires just a little bit of creativity and ingenuity. Think "Tetris"-like, ninja packing skills!

If you are planning to volunteer with Brooke It Forward to assemble boxes or plan to host a collection drive - please CLICK HERE to watch the tutorial video for important tips and instruction to make the Birthday Boxes the best they can be!

For ideas on gift items that will fit in the Birthday Boxes - take a peek at our Amazon Wish List.

As always - thank you for your support of Birthday Boxes by Brooke It Forward Foundation. We could not succeed at celebrating birthdays for going on 2,000 children without our generous volunteers, supporters and donors.

love & sprinkles,

The Brooke It Forward Team
