Easter Care Package

Sometimes our college and adult children are unable to make the trip home for Easter. While that can leave us sitting alone at church or having no one to plan lunch and games for, we can still send them some love and Easter joy with an Easter Care Package.

These Easter Care Package Printables are included in our FREE Guide to Surviving the Next Phase: 10 Resources for Organizing, Parenting, and Financing the Next Phase. Scroll to the bottom of this post to sign up for the Easter Care Package Printables.

How to Make an Easter Care Package:

#1: Shop for the items to Include in your Easter Care Package

Hop over to Gift Guide for a Teen’s Easter Basket for some ideas of what items to include.

I created my Easter care packages for my adult sons. I kept it pretty simple this year with candy and gift cards. I stuffed the eggs with candy. I bought these Jumbo Easter Eggs for the gift cards. They are the only ones that fit the gift cards.

#2: Print out the Easter care package box decorations.

Print out your Easter Care Package printables on white card stock. They can be cut to fit many different box shapes. I use USPS Medium Flat Rate boxes, but you can use any box. The USPS boxes are available for free at the post office.

Cut and tape the printables to the box. I like to include some Easter grass in the bottom.

#3: Pack Your Box

I added the little Lego Nurse Keychain Light and the hand soap for my son’s girlfriend. My mom was in the hospital a few months back and her nurse had one. It was so cute! She works at a children’s hospital, so I hope she and the kids love it.

#4: Mail Your Easter Care Package

Some care packages are put together in the post office parking lot! I had a box for one of my son’s, but not the other. I sacked up all of the eggs, candy, gift cards, along with the printables and some tape. I ran into the post office, grabbed a box, and went in the parking lot to put it together!

Getting it done is the most important thing and saving a trip back to the post office is priceless.

#5 Premade Easter Care Packages

If you do not have time to create your own Easter Care Package, there are ideas for premade care packages in Gift Guide for a Teen’s Easter Basket!

Or send a Sugarwish full of treats that you can pick out or the recipient can choose themselves: cookies, candies, snacks, popcorn, and more!
