What to put in your care package?
First step to making cute Halloween care packages for college students is to decide what you want to include in the box.
Cookies are a perfect treat to put in a Halloween box. Whether you buy pre-made ones or bake them yourself, they usually stay fresh for a few days during transport. I love using Halloween themed cookies to make the box super cute! Check out some of my favorite recipes below by clicking on the pictures!
You can package your cookies in a Halloween themed cookie jar or just use some tupperware.
Of course, you should always throw some candy into a Halloween care package. Try to think about who’s getting the box and buy their favorite treats!
As an added bonus to the fun food treats in the box, try adding some Halloween themed decorations for the recipient to put in their dorm room. Maybe some banners or other small decor items that can go around the room or hang up on the door.
Last of all, you can put some small costumes in the box! For some cute costume ideas any college student would love, check out this article!
Tips for filling your care package
1. Decorate the box
The best way to take Halloween care packages to the next level is by decorating the box. Here are the easiest (and cheapest) decoration ideas that’ll make your care package look like it was made by a pro!
- cover the sides with construction paper in Halloween colors (orange, black, green, purple, etc)
- print out Halloween symbols and tape them to the sides of the box (pumpkins, ghosts, skeletons, etc)
- print out Halloween puns or quotes and tape them to the sides of the box
- use Halloween stickers
2. Fill it completely
To make sure everything stays neat and in place in your box, fill it up completely. That way, there is no room for things to move around when it’s in transit.
If you run out of things to put in your box and need to fill it some more, try using Halloween colored tissue paper as a space filler.
Another way to make sure things stay in place is to tape certain items to the bottom and sides of the box. For the bigger items, taping them down makes sure nothing will move too much.
3. Pick a color scheme
Picking a color scheme for your Halloween care package is going to make it look SOOO much better. Because it’s for Halloween, there are basic colors to use: black, orange, green, and purple. However, if you wanna take your box to the next level, get creative with colors.
Maybe you do an all-orange box and buy snacks with only orange packaging. Or maybe you want to go black-and-white.
It is completely up to you what color scheme you pick, just choose one and stick to it!
