Maybe it’s because I live in Music City (Nashville), but I came up with 5 musical Christmas gift ideas for kids’ shoeboxes that I think would be a lot of fun. Plus, I think these would all be the right size so that they would easily fit into a shoebox.
- Tambourines (I like these colorful tambourines for kids that I found on Amazon.)
Melissa and Doug have a “Band in a Box” set (pictured above) available with several different musical toys.

My children have also enjoyed making these rope bracelets for their Operation Christmas Child boxes. If you plan a Shoebox Packing Party as a Christmas project, these are fun to make with the kids. They can make one for their box, and also one for themselves to remind them to pray for the child who is going to receive their shoebox.
