HAVILAH Road Preschool kids have thanked Australian troops by creating Anzac Day care packages.
The preschool kids filled 20 care packages for soldiers, with small treats and specially drawn pictures.
Co-educators Beth Conroy and Casie Kennedy organsied this year's care packages, which will be sent to troops serving in Iraq, Egypt, Israel and South Sudan.
"We do these nice packages twice a year, for Anzac Day and for Christmas Day," Ms Kennedy said.
"We try and get everyone to donate whatever they can really for the packages.
"The children also do some drawings and write letters for the troops and we usually get letters back which is really nice for the kids to see."
Ms Kennedy said it was great to see everyone get involved each year.
"The kids pack each care pack and we did sit down with a globe and we showed them were the packages were going to go and they enjoyed that.
"The troops actually put the kids drawings up were they sleep to make things a little more colourful.
"I feel like its important for the kids to be involved in programs like this so they can see what is going on in the world."
The boxes are all packed and will be leaving preschool for posting this Friday.
