Are kids ever too big to receive some Valentine’s Day fun from home?
Afterall, “nuthin’ says lovin’ like something from mom’s oven!”

So they wouldn’t miss anything among the packing, I made a big Valentine on one side then on the flip I printed out an inventory list.Caution:

Collegiate Valentine Care Package DIY Cupcakes Sprinkle Packs
It’s a little known fact the particle theory was realized while eating a cupcake with sprinkles.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

And what are chocolate cupcakes without icy, cold milk?
…and a little extra for a ‘moo-vie’ perhaps?

  1. soso cute! love the college themed conversation hearts. my mom always sent me a valentine when I was at school. freshman year it contained a lot of bubble wrap- stress relief while I waited on bid day!

  2. Awwww you are too cute! I need you to adopt me!

  3. i wish you were my mom, i never even got a care package when i was in college 🙁

  4. Oh my gosh! I am SO impressed. Take these to and you will have orders upon orders:). Or not, and just let your lucky boys enjoy.

  5. So sweet! I know you looove your boys, and wouldn’t want it any other way… so don’t take this wrong, but all your creativity would have gone far with daughters. I hope those boys appreciate their creative Momma!

  6. That is the sweetest (no pun intended) thing I’ve ever seen!

  7. That is the cutest thing I have ever seen!!! You are such a creative mama! How did you print all of those adorable labels too?! PreCIOUS!

  8. That brings tears to my eyes…you are the dearest. Makes me think of when my boys were away at school..but I was never that sweetly creative!s

  9. That is PRECIOUS!! I’m glad my children cannot see what you’re sending yours for Valentine’s Day. They would see what they’re missing haha 😉 xoxo

  10. This post is absolutely adorable, I don’t know where to start!! Such a cute idea and you put it all together so creatively! LOVE it!!!

  11. You’re the best mom. I feel ashamed when I come to your blog. 🙁

  12. Well, I did have to take it down a girlie notch but I could still get away with some stuff. Mr. P. M. said, ‘remember these are guys.’ Yep, I know so I re-did a few labels but I made sure there wasn’t a cherub in sight.

    I made all the labels and tags with Print Master. It’s an old program. I grabbed a graphic put text on it and printed everything out on card stock and folded, cut, taped and punched where I needed to. It really took a lot of time (hours) but it was a lot of fun. I love doing stuff like this.

    Thank you all for your nice comments and compliments. 🙂 xoxo

  13. One made up word: YUMMO!

  14. Omg you are the best!! Seriously will you adopt me!!

  15. Oh this is great!!! I’m already checking the mail for my Valentine’s Day presents from home!

  16. Can I put in my order for you to send one to Casey??? P L E A S E !!!!

  17. You’re such a good mom. I fall very short in the sending of care packages…although since my girls attended college here in Atlanta at GT, I guess I can be excused. I’ll file this info for next year when the boy goes away to Ole Miss.

  18. That is so cute and thoughtful. My dad gets me a cheap box of chocolates that I’m 99% sure my mom picks up for him. I wish someone would make one for me now and I’m all grown up with a family of my own. Your boys are lucky!

  21. Yo uare darling and these kids are the luckiest! Packages from home were my favorite while away at school! This will make their day!

  22. So adorable! There was no better feeling than receiving goodies in the mail from mom and dad when I was away at school. You have two very lucky boys. 🙂

  23. This would be amazing to get in the mail. Stopping from SITS!

  24. That is seriously the most creative, thoughtful thing ever!!! Please let us know how to do labels like that!

  25. This is just great! I’m going to have to make the rice crispy bears and conversation heart cookies (aimed at elementary schoolers) this year! Thanks for the inspiration!

  26. My mom always sent me the sweetest care packages at school and I mostly remember the Valentine’s Day packages. But, they were in no way, this creative!! She wasn’t a baker either! Luckily my dad was, so his cookies were always included. 🙂 Good memories. Your boys will remember their great mom’s acts of kindness too!

  27. Very cute, I would have loved to have received one of those while I was in college!
