Halloween Care Package with Kids

Holidays are always a fun time to make care packages, its easy to find stuff to put in it and to decorate with. This time we are discussing Halloween because its just about that time. You've still got time to get those packages put together and sent out to your service member. Our first stop was Dollar Tree because, why not!!!?







First thing is you have to have some fluff for the package so things don't get jostled around. We picked up some orange shredded paper and some scary Halloween fabric. It is surprisingly big and thick! It was perfect for packing some of the more delicate things I had going in this time around.

Picking up a few whimsical things for a good laugh was also important to me. It's Halloween, a fun holiday to be like a kid. And if they hubby has to miss all the silly fun I'm going to bring as much fun to him and his pals over there as I can. So, I picked up a few plastic halloween cups with funny sayings on them. I snagged four for a dollar.


 Next the kids picked out a package of pirate patches! It will be perfect for an awesome deployment picture. There is a whole row of Trick-Or-Treat alternatives or Halloween Party Favors right now at Dollar Tree and they are just the right amount of silly fun. Pack it up with hard candy that won't melt everywhere (even though its starting to get cold here its still 90 to 110 degrees over there) and toss in a few eyeballs and you're good to go.





Decorating a box can be tricky...so you've got to be creative. I cut up paper that could be taped to the flaps and let the kids draw and decorate them. They are cut out perfectly to fit over the boring brown box flaps. Other options would be colored paper or themed wrapping paper.

Make sure to decorate the outside of the box too!! It's so much fun for the kids and it just builds up that anticipation for your service member as they are opening it!


Sending care packages is such a fun thing to do for your service member, and for you too!
What are your favorite things to include in Halloween care packages?
