    Help with Care Package

    Advertisements
    I will be making a back-to-school theme care package for my DB to send him when he firsts goes to tech. He will be going to tech the same week I am going to start college. I would like to have it done around august 20th, before I have to really start packing up and getting ready for school. I know I will be putting some "after school" snacks in it like dunkaroos or mayb snack packs? I would also like to put in a new shirt "back to school clothes" for when he levels up to phase 2 at the end of the month (as long as he is a good boy that is! ). I am also thinking of a rubix cube to "exercise his mind" (yea, totally stole it off of Avy ). I would like to put other things in it though. So can you ladies give me other item ideas? It would be much apperciate!

    -what about actual school supplies?? likes pens, notebooks, post-its, highlighters???
    -pictures of you dressed as a "school girl" - knee highs and all.
    -anything related to his fav college team, if he has one.
    -you could make him all kinds of sappy/silly/naughy "school" materials - like flash cards or texts/quizzes - or report cards.
    -some kind of small nerf football or something for recess.

    i def think its a cute idea!!

    how about lunch time snacks, like old school fruit roll-ups, gushers, juice boxes, dunkaroos, snack-packs, mondo coolers, zebra cakes etc.

    i recently did one similar with a "be a kid again" type of theme...i sent him water balloons, nerf guns, those bubble things that you blow up and they don't pop, they're like rubberish...(there used to be infomercials for them during afternoon cartoons if you're a 90s kid )

    i'm sure there was more but it's late and i just can't think right now...

    he liked it...its kind of an inside joke between us, and we had one conversation about all the kinds of stuff we liked when we were a little kid so i made sure to include those but i also sent the usual protein bars, beef jerky tuna kits etc. the other stuff was more to make him smile and laugh and share with some of the guys
