Whether your college student will be home for Easter or not, they will certainly be Hoppy to receive an Easter Care Package made especially for them!
One way for me to cope with having a child away at college is to create and send care packages! It allows me to do something special for her and, I’m thinking, she appreciates the effort too!
For Easter, I decided to create an Easter Egg Hunt In A Box! I’ve always enjoyed creating Easter Egg Hunts for the kids and, just because she’s away at college, doesn’t mean she shouldn’t open a few eggs!

Easter Care Package Supplies
How To Assemble Your Easter Egg Hunt In A Box Care Package
- Print the Easter Care Package Printables, found below, on card stock. There are 2 options for box décor – 1 for large box flaps (fit perfect on USPS Regional Rate Box B) and 1 for small box flaps (fit perfect on USPS Regional Rate Box A).
- Cut the Easter box décor and use an adhesive applicator to adhere the box décor to your box flaps.
- Cut the Easter Note sheet in half. Write a note and place it in your box.
- Print and cut the Easter Messages and Easter Trivia and place in plastic eggs, with a piece of candy or a bit of cash.
- Print the Easter Activity Sheet to place in the bottom of your box.
- Add your Easter eggs, filled with goodies, along with paper grass, to your box. Make sure it is packed well so items don’t shift. Place your Easter Egg In A Box printable across the top!
- Seal and send your Easter Care Package to your college student and make their day!
What To Put In An Easter Care Package
We chose to create an Easter Egg Hunt In A Box! We also added some festive springtime items!
- Beach Ball – Encourage your college student to get outside on these nice Spring days!
- Bunny Glasses – We had these left in our Easter Storage Box from last year but you may be able to find them at the Dollar Tree!
- Goldfish Spring Colors
- Dubble Bubble Eggs
- Jelly Belly Spring Mix
- Plastic Eggs – I picked up the shiny ones from the Dollar Tree but, I gotta say, they were kind of hard to open. I may have even cracked a few trying to get them open.
- Candy – We chose candy that we know our daughter likes and will eat!
Easter Grass – I like to use the shredded crinkle paper from the Dollar Tree! It is found in the gift bag section.
