First, I painted the inside of a box yellow. I've never painted the inside of a box for a care package before and I just loved the way it turned out! I may paint every box for now on. I wrote out the words, "You Are My Sunshine" on the inside of the lid in white paint. It was too hard to see so I went back over and added a black marker.
Next I collected a whole bunch of yellow things. He's in the Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M, so he's not allowed to have a whole lot of stuff in his hole (Corps talk for dorm room). I can tell you the Dollar Tree was my friend for this.
- juicy fruit gum
- post it notes
- lemonade packets for his water
- disinfecting wipes,
- chocolate chips in a yellow box
- golden oreos
- minion bandaids
- yellow phone charger cord
- lays potato chips
- yellow smiley face pen
- yellow balloons
- homemade banana cake
- yellow pre-stamped envelopes with one already addressed to Mom
- carmex chapstick
Then, I added yellow tissue paper and added yellow caution tape to the outside and sent the package on it's way. I hope it "brightened" his day!
