    • 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.
