Camp Mail

My niece and nephew are away at camp this week. We can send along notes and treats and the mail will be delivered to the kids and counselors each day. I remember when I would go away to camp, mail call was a very exciting time of day. So I wanted to put together a few little treats to send to them and a couple of the other kids that I know very well. The first one was these little Riley mini cards. I also included a great big bag of Life Savers for each child that could be shared with their cabin-mates.

I knew these notes and things would probably end up in the trash pretty quickly so I didn't want to spend a ton of time on them. For today's mail treat they are getting bottles of Gatorade and some chap stick that has sunblock in it. I just made a quick tag to hang over the bottle, stamped a quick little sun and then wrote them a note on the back of the tag.

Super easy, super quick and I hope the kid's enjoy my mail!

I know last week I said I would be back to posting regularly and then disappeared for a week! I went to do a post the next morning and there was no internet here. It was splotchy off and on all week and I couldn't get a post completed without losing my connection. I finally gave up in frustration. Kip finally figured out the problem was the splitter and got it replaced. That seemed to have fixed the problem so I am a happy blogger once again.

Have a great day!
