In this time of social distancing, it can take some creativity to stay connected with loved ones. A care package is a great way to remind friends and family you are thinking of them from afar. Who will your child send a package to?
Send a care package

Is your child missing a friend who has moved away? Or do you know someone who is sick or could use some cheering up? One way to let them know you’re thinking about them is to send a care package.  

 

First,  help your child think about what sorts of things the person likes. Then buy or make at least a few small gifts for them, like a book, homemade brownie mix, small game, or something your child has made! Remember to protect the items with lots of crumpled newspaper or other packing material so the contents don’t move around if the package is jostled.  

 

If you would like to add personal touches to the box itself, line the inside with favorite patterned paper, such as wrapping paper, before you pack the items.
