Summer Camp Care Packages

Written by Rachel Paxton

Continued from page 1

If you decide to write to your child at camp, here are a few tips:

* If your children are young and this is their first time away from home, make sure to send several letters to let them know you're thinking about them and that you miss them.

* Have other family members write to your child also. Kids love to receive mail.

* If you have a child who would be embarrassed by letters from home, just send a care package with some of their favorite candy or other small items. One year I sent my daughter a pair of Sponge Bob boxer briefs, and they wererepparttar hit ofrepparttar 150343 camp.

* Be creative with your packing. You can use a 2-liter pop bottle as a mailing container. Cut a slit inrepparttar 150344 side to place items in it and then tape overrepparttar 150345 slit. The kids will get a kick out of seeing what's inrepparttar 150346 bottle.

* Depending on how long it takesrepparttar 150347 mail to get torepparttar 150348 camp or how long your child will be gone, you may have to mailrepparttar 150349 packagerepparttar 150350 day your child leaves, or even before they leave.

* If you know any ofrepparttar 150351 other kids at camp, like your child's closest friends, don't be afraid to send them a note or treat too. I often send thinking-of-you cards to some of my daughter's friends, and I know they love receiving mail from people other than their parents.

In this day and age, letter writing is becoming a dying art. If my daughter keepsrepparttar 150352 letters I wrote her someday they will be a special keepsake for her, capturing an exciting time in her life.

We don't always takerepparttar 150353 time to do little things for our kids or tell them how we feel about them. Writing to them at camp is a great way to keep in touch with them while also sending them a welcome treat.
