You’re One in a Minion Half-Way Kit


Since all of our ‘Mammas’ have different halfway points we each did our own boxes to celebrate the occasion.  For my son’s ‘One Year Half Way Through’ Box I decided to swap things up from the traditional ‘Camel’ and ‘Hump Day’ boxes by doing a Minion Themed District Party in a Box. It turned out really cute and I included something for all 6 Missionaries in his District so they all could celebrate with him. I found out afterwards that it just happened to also be one of the other Elder’s and also one of the Sister’s Hump Day as well – so it turned into quite the party!!!

If you would like to send your own ‘Hump Day Box’ to your Missionary – check out this kit we put together to help you do just that!

Your 17-Page Kit will include the following:

✔ 1-Introduction Letter with easy to follow instructions to help you put together the Perfect Care Package.
✔ 4- Large (11.5X8.5″) Adjustable Stickers to decorate your 4 box flaps of your shipping package. Just peel and stick! (These stickers are designed to fit a USPS Priority Mail Large Flat Rate Box and large UPS boxes. The stickers can also be easily trimmed to fit a USPS Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate Box as well as some Medium and Small UPS boxes or use your own box.) * Please note the kit does not include the actual box,
✔ 1-Box Introduction Letter to be placed in your Box right before you tape it up. This unique design lets your Missionary know the theme of your care package and that something special has been created just for them!
✔ 1-Page of Unique Envelope Designs that you can adhere to the front of your Letter to your Missionary and their Companion! This page is also printed on sticker paper – so you just need to cut them out and adhere to any envelope of your choice. It’s that easy!
✔ 1-Custom Missionary Letter for you to include with your personal Letter to your Missionary.
✔ 1-Page with a Custom Half-Way through poem to encourage your Missionary.
✔ 5-Pages with Custom Tags that Can Be Used to put together your Minionary Twinkie Set or use throughout your Box as Desired.
✔ 3-Pages of Minion Gift Tags, Quotes, and Ideas for you to continue with your Minionary Theme.

One in A Minion!!! It’s always so fun to see the pictures my missionary sends home of him opening up his crazy boxes – and this box was definitely no exception.  Inside the Box I included this Instruction letter for him to follow:

Dear Coult,

Passing your One Year Mission Mark is truly an accomplishment and one worth celebrating! Since we can’t be there in Spain with you to throw a Fun Party ~ I decided to send you one that you can throw for the 6 of you in your District!!!
Decorations Included!

So, Instructions for Your One in a Minion Celebration!!!

1. Carefully pull out the 6 wrapped in cellophane cups and set to the side – but don’t open them yet.
2. You should see a cute blue t-shirt and plaid tie in your box just for you.
3. Under those you should see a cake, some frosting, and some brownie mix. Those are the only other things you should take out of the box for now.
4. Carefully put back in the 6 wrapped in cellophane cups inside the box and keep until Party Day.
5. On the day of your District Party ~ Bake your cake, then frost it, and bake the brownies.
6. When all 6 of you are together you can unpack the rest of the box. Each District Member will have their own Cup with His or Her name on it.
7. Tell Each One of them that I send My Love and Big Hugs to them! I am so happy that they are there with you in Spain to Celebrate.
8. Tell them that this party is for them too! They are amazing and fabulous and I hope you all have the mostest wonderful party EVER!!!

I Love You Buggie! To The Moon & Back!!! Mom

Of course the care package wouldn’t be complete without some mail – so I just had to add in some fun letters with envelope decoration to go with the theme. (Included in the MBM Kit)
