Yesterday I shared some money-saving tips on shopping for summer overnight camp. Today it's all about the care packages. You know they love getting things in the mail, especially care packages. Here are some ideas of what to send:
Coke or Pepsi? This book series has oodles of questions the kids can ask each other to get to know them better. It's more for girls than boys
Origami paper and book - this will provide the kids something to do when it's raining or rest time in the cabin.
Make paper airplanes (or even Star Wars flyers) with this book and paper set
Disposable camera - don't want to send the digital camera or rely on camp photos for the memories? Send an inexpensive disposable camera.
Fun postage stamps - get them to write you back, by giving them colorful stamps from the post office.
Letters from Camp - you might give them some ideas, but the Letters from Camp book series is hilarious.
Picture frame to autograph - this one is for the memories!
Camp autograph book
Mad Libs - the gift that keeps on giving
Camp Bunk Box of Questions - from Melissa and Doug
Bunco dice game - just because you drink when you play it doesn't mean your kids have to.
Glow bracelets - great to share with the bunk
Misting fan - stay cool!
Sudoku for kids
BrainQuest - good for kids to play alone or together
What do your kids like getting at camp? Please post your suggestions and experiences below!
