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.

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:

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.
