• How to use a Survival Kit:

    1. Gather the Items listed in the kit
    2. Print out a cute listing of the contents so that the recipient knows what each item is for.
    3. Place the items in a baggie
    4. Print out the topper, fold it over the top of the baggie containing the survival kit contents and staple it shut

     Please note that Most of the survival kits listed have free printable toppers available to print here.

  • The Sponge Survival Kit

    The Sponge Survival Kit

    - give a small sponge and add this list of uses to the sponge

    When in doubt, pull the "sponge" out to:
    -wipe away those little and big messes we get ourselves into
    -dab off the perspiration from our brow when the heat is on
    -wring when a neck is not available
    -toss against the wall should we be in the need of having a temper
    -rest our head on when a short nap is in order
    -pick at instead of pulling our hair out
    -to squeeze when a hug is the answer
    -to give to a friend when a friend is in need

    Sponge Poem
    - this was shared by a member of a craft mailing list, thanks Scottie.
    Cut the sponges to look like a little and girl and boy, add the poem,
    Children are like sponges
    they absorb all your strength
    and leave you limp.
    But give them a squeeze
    and you get it all back.
