I'm assembing a goody box for my daughter which she'll recieve during her mid-semester "crunch time." Just wanted to share them with all of you:
"CRUNCH TIME" CARE PACKAGE IDEAS
Individually wrap and label each item with its intended usage (they'll groan when they discover what's in each one):
Gum, chewy granola bars - use when you need to chew on a problem.
Pistachio nuts - use when you're about to crack.
Snicker bars, Laffy Taffy - use when you need a good laugh.
Hershey kisses - use when you're feeling lonely.
Pringles chips - use when the chips are down..
6-pack of applesauce - use when your mind feels like mush.
Fig Newtons - use to help solve physics problems.
Microwave popcorn - use when you need a burst of inspiration.
Crunch bar - use to get you through crunch time.
Butterfingers - use when you're feeling klutzy.
Lifesavers - use when you need a deadline extension.
Trail mix - use when you feel lost (or, use when you need to get away from it all).
Dried fruit - use when you're dry on ideas.
Cheese doodles - use when you're feeling artistic.
Air heads - use when you're feeling foolish.
Whoppers - use when you need to correct big mistakes.
Tea or hot chocolate - use to get you out of hot water.
Rubber bands - use to stretch your time
Emory board - use to smooth things out
Glue stick - use to help you stick to the task at hand.
Paper clips - use to help you keep it all together.
Comb - use to solve knotty problems.
Best idea - I bought (and used) a 12 oz. can of frozen orange juice. Clean it out and use a Sharpie pen to black out the word "orange juice." Under the word "Concentrated," tape a strip of paper saying SMART PILLS. Tape an index card onto the can with the following printed on it:
INDICATIONS: Use for unfocused thoughts, procrastination, lack of energy or inspiration.
TO USE: Take one or two pills at a time. Let pills dissolve slowly in mouth. May be taken with or without water. Is safe for children under 12.
WARNING: Do NOT take all the pills at once. Overdose will cause nausea, bloat and fatigue due to a sharply elevated blood sugar level.
Fill the orange juice can with a zip-lock bag of M&M's and scotch tape the lid back on.

OMG, it really depends on the kid. Some students will groan, but be happy for the attention and thought that went into the package. Others may just groan! Nice job, Lori!

Gee, my kid was thrilled with some familiar snacks from home.
