I love making care packages for my college son and this Super Bowl Care Package may be my favorite one of all. He loves all things sports and will definitely be watching the big game, so I have included one of his game time snack loves – the ingredients for chips and queso and also some candy and fruit snacks as filler.

Normally I use medium flat rate priority mail boxes for my care packages, but I upgraded to a large flat rate box to fit the bag of chips and because the stadium looked better in a large box. You can obtain these boxes at the post office for free. When you are ready to mail them, you pay a flat rate of $13.45 for the medium boxes or $18.45 for the large boxes regardless of weight.

I started my Super Bowl stadium box with the field using grass tissue mats, which I purchased from Amazon. They come out of the package in a long row. The grass blades were too long, so I cut them down by about half. I also lined the box with green paper before laying the grass.

Using PIC MONKEY – a photo editing and graphic design website, I made the end zone team signs with the “FRESHMAN” font.

The crowd scene was also edited on PIC MONKEY. I printed three copies, so I could cover the full space on the box flaps. (If you have some legal paper, you could edit the crowd scene to fit.) The crowd scene is available for download on the subscriber's only page of this website.
