Have your kids taught you any abbreviations lately? In my pointless quest to be “the cool mom” here are some text abbreviations I’ve learned:

  • LOL (Laugh Out Loud)
  • YOLO (You Only Live Once)
  • ILY (I Love You)
  • NVM (Nevermind)
  • ROFL (Rolling On Floor Laughing)

This week is officially the first week of fall and I have a new abbreviation to break it in: PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte). Yes, that’s what the gift card I bought at Starbuck’s had emblazoned in sparkling orange print.

Fall Care Package

When the air starts getting chilly I know it’s about time to send a fall care package to my kids. Mine are getting in the groove of their routines and I’m starting to realize how far away Thanksgiving break is.

If you’re in the same boat, here’s a step-by-step fall care package that won’t break the bank. These fun, printable tags are the finishing touch that make it special.

Have fun making this simple care package for your student.
Start with these items, or your own variation.

Here’s what you’ll need:

With a $5 Starbuck’s gift card, my total was $10 for everything.

Start Here

Start by spray painting a box for the mug. Dollar Tree sells the perfect size.
This round box fit my mug perfectly.

I found a box at Dollar Tree that my mug fit into snuggly. The only problem was the “Happy Birthday” across the lid. A quick coat of orange spray paint added a bright touch. If you prefer a plain box, skip this step.

Now it’s time for the fun part!

Next Step

Print out the Fall Tags and cut them to fit. My printable is scaled for 100%, but I printed these tags at 50%. so they fit in my cute, little box.

Punch a hole in the tag and tie it to your pumpkin stem with twine or ribbon.

Fill the base of the mug with your student’s favorite candy and a gift card for their favorite, hot drink.

Fall is here and you can send a fun care package for pennies with these printable tags.


For the finishing touch, nestle your finished product in packing paper and seal the box. Don’t forget to sign the back of the tag- Love, MOM xoxo!

If you’re missing your kid, don’t worry. In just a few weeks they’ll BRB. Pretty soon, you’ll be saying TTYL. OFC they can’t wait to see you again, but B4YKI they’ll be home with some great stories of their new BFFs.
