This time of year can be extremely difficult for a college freshman. I remember this from my early days of being away from home. What better way to brighten any student’s day than a fun care package? I recently decided to send a Box of Sunshine to a friend’s daughter who started school far from home this fall. Here is what I put in it:
- Yellow Paper Straws
- Travel Size Hand Sanitizer
- Travel Size Body Wash
- Yellow “Anything is Possible” Journal
- Yellow Highlighters (because we all know every college student needs these)
- Post its
- Juicy Fruit Gum
My very favorite find for this ‘Box of Sunshine’ was this super cute journal!
Once I had everything in the box (quick tip – put anything liquid in a plastic bag before shipping), I wrapped it in yellow tissue paper.
And topped it with a cut-out sun, on which I wrote “A box of sunshine to brighten your day.”
I had seen this fun idea on Pinterest a couple of years ago, and did one for my sister in-law at that time too. Each time it was such a fun way to bless them!
