Sending care packages to your college kid can be as hard or as easy as you make it. Hard if you make the mistake of trolling Pinterest for ideas and discover that there are people out there who construct entire boxes around a theme and make veritable scrapbook pages out of the box flaps (Bravo, seriously… but who has that kind of time?) It can be easy if you just, well, stay the hell away from Pinterest.
Another way making packages can be effortless? Get your friends to make them for you! (Sort of). College care package parties are a fun way to easily create a box that will blow your kid’s mind; selfishly, it’s a great excuse for you to get together with some friends you probably haven’t seen since graduation, dish about the kids you all miss terribly, sip some cocktails, and assemble a kick-ass care package in a fraction of the time it would have taken you to do it alone.
This was my group from last year.
How to host a care package party. (Michelle Newman)
While large college care package parties are often a popular option, I kept my recent soirée smaller. “The more the merrier” may be fine for some, but for me, “more” means “more anxiety” and “more planning,” neither of which I don’t need in my life right now. I also wanted the boxes to be packed by moms that all (or most of) the kids knew — some since kindergarten — which I felt would make it a bit more personal.
However you decide to organize it, here’s a helpful guide to ensure that the night — and the college care packages — are a success!
