My daughter is leaving for college soon, and I am excited for her but also very scared. Not in the way you think though – I’m afraid she will come back. Of course, I’m looking forward to her newfound freedom (as she calls it) and how she will handle the responsibilities. This is such a beautiful beginning for her, and I’m so proud to be her parent.
Leaving for College Care Package
Before I shove my daughter out the door, I want to give her a College Care Package to help with this transition. My daughter is my best friend so watching her leave for college is incredibly emotional for me but I’m sure I will get over it soon. My daughter loves all the comforts of home so in the care package I put in things to help decorate her dorm room plus some comforts to remind her of home.
New sheets are the best, and I want her to sleep comfortably so of course, I got her the Better Homes & Gardens® 300 Thread Count sheet set, available at Walmart. Which is 100% cotton sateen, super soft and easy to clean. Keep it simple but comfortable. The sheets are available in a variety of great colors to fit any college dorm room decor. Plus the sheets are in my budget so it’s a great value for the price. I don’t mind spending a little more to get 100% cotton because microfiber traps heat.
Towels are essential to buy when the kid is leaving for college because nothing beats a soft towel from Mom. Knowing my daughter, she would buy her towels from the dollar store, and I can’t have that for my child. I picked up the Wamsutta® Hygro® Duet towels which are extra absorbent, incredibly soft, and get softer and fluffier wash after wash due to the proprietary HygroCotton. The towels are available in a variety of great colors plus they’re an amazing value for the price.
You can find the towels at Bed Bath & Beyond.
I included other comforts of home like her favorite mug, drink, notecards, notebook, colorful pens, smell goods and of course laundry detergent. Creating her leaving for college care package was fun to put together. I highly recommend gathering things here and there when you are out shopping. I got one of those trunk bags and started filling it up six months before she was leaving for college. Add in your touch but remember this is for your kid. Have fun creating your care package.
Leaving for College Printables
Another cool thing to do for your college-bound kid is a little advice from MOM! Cleaning is not my kid’s favorite thing to do so I know she has no clue on how to keep her dorm clean. As the cool mom that I am, I made her a Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule and added some hints for her. You are more than welcome to print this out for your child too – click on picture and print. I added a class schedule printable too.
Now that I gave you some ideas for creating your own Leaving for College Care Package and these cool free printables it’s time for you to make one for your college-bound kid. Don’t forget the Better Homes & Gardens® 300 Thread Count sheet set and the Wamsutta® Hygro® Duet towels because they do deserve some comfort from home.
We would love to know what you would put in your leaving for college care package- leave a comment and let us know.
