Anywhoo enough about me. Here's what you really want to see:
So even though we don't do Halloween in this house, I thought it would be fun for Steve to receive a "scary" box this month. And for some reason I kinda like Zombies:/ I haven't looked to deep into this, so I am not really sure why...Maybe it started when I was pregnant and my kids hooked me on Plants VS Zombies!
Anyway I started with my usual. A box decorated accordingly. I had the kids make "bloody" hand prints and we glued them to the box flaps. I put the saying "Without you we are like the living dead" on the final flap.
Then I filled it with theme appropriate goodies.
First up the Entertainment stuff:
The newest zombie movie "World War Z", and oldie/cheap zombie movie "Rise of the Zombies" and a Zombie slaying game for his DS.
Next I put in some goofy/ stress relieving stuff:
An tiny "Adopt a Zombie kit", some squishy Nerf zombie bombs, and a "Grow a Zombie"
Then I added the Gross parts:
Some edible sour string "brains" and a creepy zombie mask
Whats a care package without Food!?! :
So I stuck in some Gummies and a thing of "Zombie Food"
Finally I put in some fun games:
Zombie Bowling, Zombie Dice & some Zombie playing Cards.
Personally I hope he brings the Zombie Bowling home with him. I would love to knock a few Zombie pins down:)
This was the first box that I attempted to embellish. You can see that I crisscrossed some "Zombie Outbreak" Tape that I picked up at the Dollar Store across the top of the box. I am hoping when he opens the box it will look the same...we shall see:/
So this box was fun even if it was kinda gross;)
