Back to School Mini Survival Kit

It seems like just about everyone in the country has started school but us. Out here school doesn't start until tomorrow. I know, it's late.

I'm a leader for our church's 8-11 year old girls group and to gear them up for school we made mini school survival kits last week for them to keep in their backpacks.

To make them, I picked up these Q-tip packs I found at the dollar store. (Can't find cute little cotton swab packs like this? What about a travel soap bar container?)

With the Q-tips taken out they make the perfect little case, just right for filling up with goodies to stick in your backpack.

One kit includes:
2 wet wipes
2 mints
1 hair elastic
1 card for listing emergency information
Several band-aids
Pocket tissues (which were slightly too big to fit in, but we included them anyways)

All nice and snug in a compact little case.

Now we're all ready for back to school.

  1. This is such a cute idea! I'm going to link to you on my blogroll. I'm excited that you'll be joining us for the Proclamation celebration!

  2. great idea:) thanks for sharing:)

  3. What a delightful Activity days project. How about adding a Picture of Jesus on the inside of the box to remind them of who they can turn to when times get tough.

  4. That is a really cute idea. I think I'll make some for my girls's lockers.
