Sending your children off to sleepaway camp for the summer can be tough, especially if it’s their first time being away from home. We have found some of the best products for your young one to share with her new friends and to ensure she knows that you are thinking of her. Here is the guide to the BEST sleepaway-camp care package:
1. Painted Pineapples Pink Notebook – May Designs
Send her a fun and personalized notebook so she can journal all the fun activities she does throughout the day. This notebook is 5×8 inches and has 80 pages. In addition to the personalization on the notebook’s soft canvas cover, you can personalize the color of the lines inside of the notebook which will make it super unique to her and her style.
2. Ultimate Friendship Bracelet Party – ALEX
Your daughter and her friends will love spending a “late night” making friendship bracelets in their cabin. This kit has enough material, including 20 colors of floss, metal charms and beads to make about 30 bracelets—perfect for all of her friends and counselors!
3. Disposable Kodak Camera 3 Pack – Kodak
We get it… All kids have tech devices with cameras built-in but we also know many camps will not allow such items on their grounds and some of us parents will not allow our kids to pack them. This is a great way to document their camp experiences with friends through photos and without the risk of damaging a pricey device. This disposable camera takes 27 photos, has a manual flash, and clear quality. Best of all, you can make their photos into a Shutterfly book that they can look through for years to come.
4. Girls’ Tattly Feather Temporary Tattoos – J. Crew
These fun themed temporary tattoos are the hottest trend of the summer! Your daughter can apply them to her feet, hands or arms for a fun summer look!
5. Dylan’s Candy Bar Yummy Gummy Paint Can – Dylan’s Candy Bar
Not sure what goodies to send to your little ones because of the heat? Gummies are a yummy way to go! This Dylan’s Candy Bar can will satisfy your little one’s sweet tooth with treats such as mimi gummy bears, peach rings and Swedish fish.
Don’t forget to write her a handwritten note attached with a family photo! She will love to read how the family is doing and have a picture to display next to her bunk bed.
