create a monthly tradition that is sure to become a highly anticipated
gift from home! If you use your creativity, you can come up with
ingredient ideas with ease.
I always love to theme our college packages to the kids.. so here is a creative care package idea that the kids just loved! I would create a Care Package of the month
using the letter of the spelling of the month!! I add a copy of
calendar page for the month I was sending the care package. I would
circle special dates like birthdays and special holidays like Halloween.
The loved it as they laughed at my creative ideas for the letters.
For example, in May which is exam month, you could send a bag of
Munchies or MnM's for M, apples or DVD like Avatar or Animal House for A
and add yogurt covered pretzels, a box of Yodels or in our house
anything NY Yankees for Y! Of course, I circle Mother's Day on the
calendar that month!! Grab your fellow Moms and use this idea to hold a Care Package Party! Here is everything you will need to send a monthly themed care package to your college student. We've put together a free printable with ideas for every month!
Here's an example of our ingredients for a December package! This is how we outlined every month in our free printable of this great monthly college care package idea!
