Happy 5th of July, y’all! Hopefully you all had a wonderful day with your family and friends. I know things were quiet around here yesterday, but I’d like to think that I’m making it up to you today by sharing my mini July 4th care package. I had to get creative with this care package since it would be traveling with A instead of getting shipped to him.
I’ve done mini care packages before and really like how they pack so much fun into such a tiny package. The challenge is of course finding items that fit into mini care packages. This July 4th care package gave me a very tough time because the box was so tiny and almost every July 4th item I found was too large to fit.
I did find peanut butter cups and Hershey’s kisses that were festively wrapped so they worked perfectly in my July 4th care package. I also squished a red, white and blue drink koozie in the bottom of the box. But I wanted to send something more than just candy and a koozie. So I kept shopping and got a little creative.
And that’s how my patriotic trail mix was created! I combined yogurt-covered craisins, yogurt-covered blueberries, regular craisins, cashews, banana chips and red, white and blue M&Ms. I packaged it in plastic baggies and jammed a very solid portion into the box.
I capped off my mini July 4th care package with some cute stars cutouts (left over from previous care packages) and a little message. While this care package isn’t as extravagant as many of my others, I think it still gets the job done while not taking up a lot of space.
