Mini First Aid Kit

Tucked in a backpack or locker, this box of supplies stored in a travel soap dish will ensure that your child is well prepared for life's little emergencies.


Approximate Time: About 30 minutes


  • travel soap dish
  • white craft foam or felt
  • 3-D fabric paint
  • wiggly eyes
  • small pom pom
  • first aid supplies
  • scissors
  • craft glue


  1. Cut a piece of fun foam or felt to resemble a band aid.
  2. Using the tube of paint, draw a decorative bandage on the fun foam or felt. Glue on the wiggly eyes and pom pom nose, and paint on a mouth, as shown.
  3. When paint has dried, glue the bandage to the soap dish cover.
  4. Print your child's contact numbers on a piece of paper cut to fit inside the cover and glue it in place.
  5. Finally, fill the box with items your child may need, such as an alcohol wipe, band aids, cough drops, chap stick, dental floss, and a prepaid phone card.

This is a cute project -if you are working with younger kids just be sure to check with the school first - our school does not allow kids to have cough drops in their bags and they cannot have them unless they are dispensed by the health office.
