I chose these bright yellow napkins because they looked like penalty flags! The green striped straws are adorable and are a nice contract to the yellow napkins. Your sons may not care about these items, but tell them that the girls will love them!!

The football stress balls are fun to throw around or to use for decorations.

The guys will love official Super Bowl merch like these Super Bowl logo cups.

Everyone needs football brownies and Super Bowl Rings! 

I got industrious and made brownies that I cut out and decorated to look like footballs. If shipping the brownies is not an option send them a brownie mix, cookie icing, and a football cookie cutter.

I also enclosed a Walmart gift card that I bought at a DISCOUNT on Raise, so they could go get some more food and party supplies.

The completed Super Bowl Care Package – a Super Bowl Party in a Box!

Cutest Super Bowl Cookies EVER!! 

I found some ADORABLE football cookies on a blog called The Monday Box. This blog is completely dedicated to recipes that can be mailed in care packages.

How to Mail Your Super Bowl Care Package:

I recommend Medium Flat Rate boxes from the post office. The boxes are free. You can pick them up before you make your boxes. They cost $15.05 to mail regardless of the weight. The Printable box decorations fit these boxes.

I make all of my Care Package decorations and labels with Pic Monkey.

Squad Ghouls Care Package

I created a squad ghouls care package for my daughter this Halloween. Halloween is a great time to send a care package. It falls right in the middle of the semester and right around mid-terms. Many of the schools are not resuming after Thanksgiving, so it may be the best time this semester to send a care package.

 

You may purchase. the Squad Ghouls Care Package Box Decorations and the “Beware of Germs” tag in the Almost Empty Nest store.

Squad Ghouls is a cute theme. There are so many fun ideas to grab when I am out shopping. My favorite places to pick up care package items are Target, Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, and Amazon. I also like to pick up soap and hand sanitizer at Bath and Body Works.  Etsy also has festive items.

I may have gone a little overboard, but I stuffed her squad ghouls care package with some extra special gifts for her.

Box Decorations

The squad ghouls care package decorations were created with white cardstock and colored vinyl. They are available for sale in the Almost Empty Nest shop.

The Finished Care Package

I was able to find many fun items to include in the care package.

beware of germs tag tied to hand sanitizer

Do not forget to include hand sanitizer with a fun “Beware of Germs” tag.  It’s 2020, you know!!! Hand sanitizer helps prevent, not only COVID, but also flu and strep. No college student wants to be sick during midterms!

You may purchase a “Beware of Germs” tag like this one in the Almost Empty Nest store.

An awesome care package starts with fun decorations. Just opening the box should give your college kiddo a lift. The box decorations I created on Pic Monkey are sized for Medium Priority Mail boxes. The boxes are free and are available at the post office. All of the box decorations and item tags needed to make this care package are available for download as part of A Year of Care Package Printables. Sign up below to receive the FREE download.

 

 

 

Box Decorations

In addition to the decorations on the box flaps, I ordered some window clings to put in the bottom of the box. What college student does not need these clings on their window to inform the world that there is a bloodied and bruised college student inside studying for mid-terms?

Window Clings

The window clings came in a HUGE package and there were TONS of them, so I cut them apart to put in the bottom of the box. One order would probably do it for a care package party. There are a LOT of them in the package.

Life Is Gourd

Life IS Gourd when you have cute ribbon, candy pumpkins, and a cute tag. This tag and the others on this page are part of the Year of Care Package Printables available in the Member’s Library. You can sign up below this post.

Finger Lickin' Good

Stuff candy into the fingers of medical gloves for a Finger Lickin’ Good treat.

Creepin' It Real

They need some real food also, so throw in some soup to keep them warm and fed as the weather turns cooler.

Beware of the Momster

College kids love paper productsI know it is hard to believe, but they don’t like washing dishes (especially in a dorm bathroom sink). Be sure to buy some that fit in your box.

Eat Your Heart Out

Popcorn, or any food, tied together with this tag is a treat and they will Eat Their Hearts Out.

Other Ideas to Include:

Quarters for laundry machines

Coffee K-cups

Items to remind them of home or a favorite product they can not get in their college town.

See College Care Package Ideas for more items to include.

 

 

Enjoy making your care package!
