Each beaver is asked to bring one of their toys, in good condition, to be donated to a local toddler group, charity shop, or other organization.
Boxes to put the toys in
Ask each child to think about what it means to give up something they have to allow someone else the joy of using it. (Sacrifice, charity, empathy, recycling)
In lodges, let the children talk about the toy they have brought and show or describe how it works.
Ask each child to place the toy in the donation box when they are ready.
Make sure that a child who isn't able to part with their toy isn't forced to!
Bring the toys to the charity/organization or have a representative present at the meeting to take the toys.
