Father's Day First Aid Kit

Make a great first aid kit for Dad on Father's Day from old lunch boxes.

Approximate Time: 30 minutes or less (allow for drying time of paints and glue)



  • lunch box
  • photo copies of pictures, magazine clip art, etc.
  • Mod Podge glue
  • brushes for applying Mod Podge glue
  • spray paint, color of choice
  • clear spray paint to seal finished item
  • inside first aid articles (band aids, alcohol, tape, etc.)


  1. First clean your lunch box well with soap and water and remove any old stickers or label that is on them.

  2. Then close up your lunch box and spray paint its outside exterior with your color of choice. We used white. We left the inside its original purple color.

  3. After the box has dried then gather any photo copies you have made from your favorite photos of dad or dad and child and any other clip art you like from magazines.

  5. Decoupage those on the box first brushing the Mod Podge glue to the back of the papers then place your clip art down to the box and brush glue on top of the clip art. Smooth out any bubbles or wrinkles you have with your fingers. Mod Podge will look milky but will dry clear.

  6. Let dry completely then spray paint box with 2 coats of clear spray paint to seal it.

  7. Add contents inside and present to Dad on Father's Day. Great for dad to keep in his garage/car/boat for any first aide treatment he may need.

  8. We used our clip art theme of shop tools for our decoupage and added a picture of them to the center of a cross shape with a red cross shape behind it and added the text words around it, then just put on other tool clip art to the other side of the lunch box.

  10. You could use any theme you like; such as fishing, golfing, gardening, etc.
