    Halloween Carepackages...

    Advertisements
    Wasn't sure where to post this..so I just did it here. I'm just wondering if anyone is send their SO a Halloween Carepackage? I'd love to know what some of the items you guys are putting in there. I'm makeing 24 goodie bags for me DB and his men. I've made handmade tags for each bag, I had to cut and make even 24 squares which took forever and was hard lol. The best way to describe the good bags is there gonna make the men feel like little kids again. So yeah what's everyone else doing...cause even though I've done enough I can always add more. lol

    DH wasn't able to get mail at Halloween time, but for most holidays I always made sure to add in some decorations, cheap dollar store ones don't make you go broke and they can just throw them out when the holiday is over. Maybe a Halloween themed snack, just make sure it's non perishable, little cheap games that can keep them occupied are always a plus.

    I'll be sending my soldiers Halloween packages for sure! They're my fav to make!





    That was my adopted soldiers last year. Lots of candy, in and around a witch's kettle, fruit by the foot, trick or treat size granola bars, halloween package doritos and cheetos, plastic eyeballs with bubbles in them, halloween silly bands, those plastic glasses with the mustache, a dvd of cheap horror movies from the dollar store, and probably some other random goofy things were in it

    Here's some pictures of the Halloween packages I sent when my husband was deployed:







    In one I sent a ton of candy, Halloween decorations (mostly stuff I found in the dollar spot at Target), a Darth Vader trick or treat bucket, and the usual snacks. In the other I sent a bunch of treat bags that I made up for the guys in his shop. He loved 'em =)

    I'm making goody bags for my DB & his friends too! Other than that, no ideas. Just lots of candy. I am excited about working on his Halloween CP.
