Spring Finals Care Package

by | Apr 25, 2024 | Parenting, College Kids

Spring Finals Care Package

Summer is almost here! But, first the college kids have to take their finals.

Send the college student in your life a Spring Finals Care Package. This post has all of the box decorations, tags, and stickers to make the perfect care package.

The Spring Finals Care Package Printables are available in the Year of Care Package Printables which is included in our FREE Guide to Surviving the Next Phase at the bottom of this post.

Spring Finals Care Package: Gather Your Supplies

Gather these supplies to create your spring finals care package.

Supply List:

White Cardstock Paper

Printable Sticker Paper

Fun Ribbon

USPS Medium Flat Rate Box – available free at the post office (the printables are designed to fit this size box, but you can cut them to any size you wish.)

Sunmaid Raisins – You could substitute trail mix with raisins in it if they would prefer.

Sunscreen

Cereal

Chips – Any chips will do. I like the small Pringles because the chips will not get smashed in the box. A full can of Pringles would be nice as well.

Bubbles

Sunflower Seeds

Another helpful item for you is a paper cutter to cut out the tags and the box decorations. The paper cutter is especially helpful if you are having other moms over to create spring finals care packages.

Spring Finals Care Package: Prepare your Items

Print the stickers and tags and attach to your items with fun ribbon.

Add other items to your box that your student will love and will help them survive the stress of finals. For a list of ideas see the list for our Winter Finals Care Package.

Silly puns can make finals not so bad. You can print the tags on cardstock or on printable sticker paper depending on how you want to attach them to your gifts. I like to do a combination of both.

Spring Finals Care Package: Assemble Your Box

  • Print the box printables (box printables, stickers, and tags are included in our FREE Surviving the Next Phase Ebook. Scroll to the bottom of this post to sign up! You may have to tell them the song this care package is based on 😉 (Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles)
  • Tape or glue your box printables. I scotch tape mine to the box. I know some people hot glue them, but they don’t have to stay on the box forever, so tape works fine for me.

Enjoy making your spring finals care package! Students love getting boxes in the mail – such a treat in our digital world.
