what to put in a college care package

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!
