    • 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
      tantrum
      -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.

      Re: gift for my brother

      This sounds like it would be a lovely gift, but why spend all that money having it made by a company at all? You can make your own very inexpensively and it would mean that much more to him knowing...
