Camp Care Packages from Gourmet Gift Basket - #Giveaway

Many of us are dealing with the ups and downs of camp season right now, especially if you have kids staying at a camp far away. Some kids might be homesick and you might be experiencing the first pangs of “empty nest syndrome” -- several years before it happens for real.

Either way, it’s always a good idea to show your kids how much you love and miss them with a fun care package that could make them the envy of their camp. 

We're seeing a lot of activity already from parents who want to send a Camp Care Package from GourmetGIftBaskets.com. Here are some of the most popular Camp Care Packages now available:



1. Arts & Crafts Care Package (SKU 5623) – For the kids who love extra, creative projects to do on their own or to share with friends, this care package includes: markers, spiral art, a mug to be decorated with velvet designs, foam designs and so much more. This also would be a great “Welcome Home” package for kids who love arts and crafts as they come home from their camp experience. $39.99 at GourmetGiftBaskets.com.



2. Glow In The Dark Care Package (SKU 5626) – If you have a child who is a "night owl," this is just the right gift for him or her. It includes several toys and gifts that glow in the dark, such as: many different types of bracelets, glasses, a ball, and other items. But this basket also has several items that kids can enjoy during the day, too, like: a Sudoku puzzle book, markers, a scribble pad, and more. $34.99 at GourmetGiftBaskets.com.




3. Gluten-Free Care Package (SKU 5609) – It can be hard to find good, tasty snacks when you have a gluten allergy. But this package has the best of the best: chocolate chip cookies, fruit and nut bars, potato sticks and much more for your camper who cannot tolerate gluten. $59.99 at GourmetGiftBaskets.com.



My Thoughts

My kids aren't off at camp, but I still like surprise with something special every now and then. The Arts & Crafts Care Package is a wonderful gift to give your little one just because. It's chock full of fun activities that are perfect for rainy days when you stuck in the house, including:




· Fine Point Washable Markers - 12 Piece Set – 12 colored markers that will brighten any day.
· Scribble Pad of Paper - 60 Sheets - 9" x 12" – A blank canvas waiting for doodles and drawings. This item has proven to be a favorite in our camp care packages.
· Pencil - This bendable pencil not only gets the trick done when it comes to writing, but it is also a toy at the same time.
· Pencil Sharpener – You'll find this essential item in any good care package for campers!
· Make Your Own Sticker Kit - Their amazing art work can be stuck on anything they choose with this easy to use kit.
· Lanyard Set - A colorful array of lanyards with which to weave and make fun jewelry.
· Swirl Art - Create your very own marbled paper with this travel size toy.
· Spiral Art - Create crazy shapes in all different sizes and colors with the spiral graph art kit.
· Scratch-a-Sketch - Although it appears to be black, scratch away at the surface and expose beautiful colors underneath.
· Magic Foam - Wet the pieces of foam and then craft away.  Once dry, it will stay in the position you created.
· Design-A-Mug Velvet - 3 Designs - This mug has three different velvet scenes that you can color in with markers to create your preferred landscape as you drink your beverage.
· Neon Scribble Slate - This colorful scribble pad makes writing that much more fun.
· Fuzzy Face Pocket Travel - Use the magnetic wand to make a funny face, shake to clear it and start again.




My kids just loved all of these crafts. Their favorite was the craft kit that allowed them to make their own bouncy balls. The Fuzzy Face Pocket Travel set was lots of fun too! I had one when I was a kid. All of the activities are really hands on and will keep your family occupied for hours. Plus there are tons of bonus items like markers, pencils, and paper that will be great for the back to school season.  This set would make a great gift for any occasion.

This seems to be incorrect. The comments near the top, seem to go with the rafflecopter that says it has ended, while the actual article seems to go with something else. How do we enter?
