How to Make your Easter Care Package:


I start all of my care packages with a Medium Flat Rate Priority box. The boxes are available for free at your post office. They ship for $15.50 regardless of the weight of the package.

An Easter Care Package may be the easiest of all care packages to make because the stores are full of colorful Easter items to make your package a gift to remember.

Place your Easter care package printables on your box. Then add some Easter Grass! Put this in the bottom of the box. It also acts as packing material.

What to Put in an Easter Care Package


Add some Plastic Easter Eggs. For my son’s packages, I stuffed each egg with money. One son has to use coin operated laundry machines, so plastic eggs are a great place to put quarters.I also made a box for a relative who is serving oversees in the military. I put candy in his plastic eggs.

And no Easter basket or care package is complete without a Chocolate Bunny.

Finish off your care package with any other Easter themed items you would like. I used Goldfish crackers and other candy. Seasonal school supplies, scented candles, or bath items would also be great – anything that brings some beautiful color to the box.

You will have them hopping around their dorm room or apartment on Easter morning with a few treats from you to remind them how much you love them.
