How to Make a Finals Care Package
Mark your tags with numbers either by using stamps and ink or with a marker. You will need as many tags as days you are sending in your care package. I chose to use seven.
What to Include in Your Finals Survival Kit Care Package
Fill each bag with a treat for your college student. A few ideas to try:
- Starbucks gift card
- Stress ball (you can even make your own)
- Vitamin C
- EOS or other lip balm
- Energy bars
- Homemade granola bars
- Post-it Flags
- Index cards
- Pizza take-out gift card
- Gift card to a favorite store
- Any treat your college student enjoys!
Tie closed the bags and add a tag to each one.
Put the filled bags in a box along with your printed finals survival kit note. Your college student will not know what hit them!
