I've mentioned previously that I currently work with the young women at my church. They are getting ready to head back to school tomorrow so as a little "back to school" treat we put these fun boxes together for them. I received a very similar "back to school" kit when I was a young women and I remember thinking it was the cutest thing ever, so I was excited to recreate it for my young women.
Most of what we included in the kits can be purchased at the Dollar Store for very reasonable prices (4 packs of gum for $1, 44 erasers for $1, 4 highlighters for $1, 3 memo pads for $1). I did however get the hand sanitizer at Smith and Edwards (for $0.10 each!), and the purple boxes from Pick Your Plum (10 for $1). Here is what we included in each kit:
We put everything into the cute boxes and then attached the little label using my favorite thing, baker's twine. If you can't find a box of some sort, a brown paper bag would also be very cute and fitting with the whole school theme.

One of my favorite parts about working with the young women is that there is room for fun and cute little crafts or handouts. I always really appreciated cute things when I was a young women (and I still have almost all of them), so I hope that the girls I work with appreciate it as well. Happy back to school!
