It's that time of year again - anyone had sick kids, sick husband and sick self? It's the one season I'm very against sharing. Keep your germs to yourselves I say. Hand-washing goes into overdrive and tissues come out to party. I thought the boys' teachers could use some defense against the barrage of germs they face on a daily basis. I was inspired by a vintage first aid kit like this one and this one.
- a box - the size is up to you, an old check box works well, shoe box, even the box your Tylenol came in would work, check your recycling bin
- Hot glue gun/glue
- Get well soon, first aid card
Cover the box first. I centered the box on the felt, ran hot glue along the top edge of the box - smooth out as you go. Now fold the felt up on side - if you keep the hot glue only on the edges of the box it won't be lumpy in the middle as it drys. Cut straight lines at the corner and fold/glue the next side. You could use a felt red cross on top, but a glued the card we had potato stamped a couple of days ago.
tissue pouch, Emergen-C, wet ones antibacterial wipes, Advil, throat lozenges, etc. If you do this I'd love to hear what you put in yours or any ideas you have for it.
