Girl’s Camp: Prescription Skittles

Our cute camp director last year (Nancy Christiansen) thought up a great idea.  Camp Value Pills (aka Skittles).  They came in value colors and were the perfect pick me up when girls were feeling blue.

Girls Camp Pills Bottle Labels

Nancy bought the pill bottles from a local pharmacy.  I took her text and turned it into a label to resemble real pill bottles.  I made them to fit a standard mailing label that I had on hand (4X2 or 8163).

Click HERE for the printable PDF for the labels.

If you do not have or do not want to purchase labels, you can print off the paper labels below.  Just cut out on the gray lines and glue to the pill bottles with Rubber Cement.

Click HERE for the printable PDF for the cut-able DIY sheet.

PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE EMAILING ME

Due to the huge number of people wanting to adjust these for themselves, I have uploaded the link to the original Microsoft Publisher file.  You must download the original.  I can NOT adjust the dates or any of the details for anyone, I just don’t have time.  If you do not have Publisher, find someone who does that can help you, or just print them off the way they are.  Thanks!

  • Thank you so much for sending me the publisher file. I was able to change everything I needed to for our camp. I just had a question, for some reason i can’t print it on the label. It is off by just a little. Is there some special format in order to print it on the label correctly?

    Thanks
    Heather

    • Heather, I’m not sure what is going on, maybe the stickers aren’t feeding into the printer properly, or maybe when you edited the doc things shifted slightly. Sorry I can’t help more!
      Amanda

  • I would love the file also to change the dates. This is so cute! Thanks.

  • I picked up my bottles but I cannot change the dates. Could you send me the file so I can make changes. I love this idea and I am using others from your blog. It is so nice to find cute things for these amazing girls at camp!

    Our camp dates are 6-26 to 6-30, 2012. I’d love to have them made for her girls!

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea!!!! Will you also please send me the file I can edit? You are an angel…the YW will LOVE these!!!!

  • May i please get the file sent to me? Thanks in advance. Can’t wait to give these to our girls. Great job!!

  • where could i buy the bottles

  • I can’t get the original file to open so I can make changes. :( Can you send me a copy of the original so I can use your darling idea? Thanks sooo much for sharing!!

  • Hello! Love this idea!!! I would like to change a few things also could you email me the file too, PLEASE!! Thanks for your creativity!!!

  • Hello!! Super Cute idea!! I would love to change a few things also, would you please email me the file too. Thanks so much!

  • Love the idea! Could you email the file please? Looking for some last minute ideas for our camp which is Wed.! AHHH!

  • I used this idea for my achievement days girls. I have seen the idea before. I thought it was a darling idea. I had a parent come up to me at church and basically call me an idiot for having such an idea to encourage little kids to take candy from a pill bottle. It would confuse them and their little siblings to think all pill bottles and it’s contents could be just eaten like candy. I could see his reasoning but that at all was not the intent. I still think it was a great idea. Just something for those of you to consider if you have a parent that may react like I had.

    • Ashegoe, I think some people take things a little overboard. I’ve had a few people comment like that. Since these are meant for older YW, I really do not see a problem. I have known pleanty of people with prescription drug addictions, and trust me, this bottle of skittles is not going to lean a teen towards drugs. With all of the positive feedback on this post, I think the nay sayers are in the minority.

      • I hope that it’s not to late to ask for a pdf file that’s changeable. I want to do this for my YW’S lesson on healthcare. Thanks so much! CLEAVER IDEA. :)

  • Please note that my email address has the number zero and the number one. I think that’s why I haven’t received anything yet.
    Please try this…Thanks so much!

  • Another great idea! Please send me the changeable publisher file.
    This is a keeper site. Thank you for sharing!

  • Hello, I tried to open the workable microsoft publisher file. It gave me the message: Sorry, we are unable to generate a view of the document at this time. Please try again later.

    If this is a file I could possibly have you email that would be great. Thank you so much for all of your time.

    • Irene, I don’t know why it always says that! The file is there, just find the download button (a downward pointing arrow on the top left of the screen), there just isn’t a “Preview” of the document. If you still can’t get it, I’ll email it to you.

  • Love this it is super cute!! I am in charge of a food for thought up at camp and was wondering what store you went to get the bottles and can you send me a file so I can edit the date.
    Thanks Mellinda Neff

  • Hi, I just came across your amazing idea…I would love to use but, need to change the date. Can I get a PDF file so I can do that…THANK YOU!!!!!!

  • I absolutely love these!! I tried to open the workable microsoft publisher file. It gave me the message: Sorry, we are unable to generate a view of the document at this time. Please try again later. Would you be willing to email them to be ? I would appreciate it greatly! Thank you for your time!

    Cynthia

    • I can send them, but just FYI, if you don’t see a “Preview” that doesn’t mean it isn’t still available for download. Click the tiny green arrow on the top left of your screen and it should download in a snap!
      Amanda

  • I absolutely love these!! I tried to open the workable microsoft publisher file. It gave me the message: Sorry, we are unable to generate a view of the document at this time.

    Jackie

    • Jackie, try clicking on the tiny green download arrow. Even though there is no “preview” it should download fine.
      Amanda

      • I still couldn’t get it to download. Can you please send me the editable file?

  • Can you please send me the editable file?

  • Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I have searched and searched the internet for something similar for a Stake Activity Day Girls Day Camp and this is the first place I have found a workable file that I could re-write. However, when I try to download I get a message that says, “Sorry, we are unable to generate a view of the document at this time. Please try again later.” Would you be willing to email them to me as well?

    Again, thank you so much for sharing your talents!

    • I got it to download! I thought I had tried everything but you were right what you said to an earlier post that even though the page says, Sorry, we are unable to generate a view of the document at this time. Please try again later. There was still a download icon and then I clicked on the green arrow in the upper right corner and it worked!

      Disregard my previous post and I hope my explanation above will help other guests to your site to try a few more things before emailing :)

      Thanks again!

  • I have tried to download and I just cant get it to. I have tried clicking on the arrow key and it doesnt do anything for me. Sorry to ask but could I please have you email it to me. Thank you

  • TOOOO cute. Is there a trick to getting the edited version to open? I have publisher and love to use it, but when I try to open this it says that the document is not available.
    Thanks

  • I love this. I just moved and still have no Internet except on my iPhone. Can I download and change the dates using my phone? I can easily have my husband print them at work. Will you send me the file please? We are going to girls camp next week 08-13-16-2013. THANK YOU!
