First Day Survival Kit

Twas the night before school started, and all through the house.
All the kids were stirring, trying to find their new blouse.
Their backpacks were hung on their doorknobs with care,
In hopes that I'd wake up in time to do their hair.

Are you more alarmed at my cheesiness or that it's Aug 1st and I'm talking about back to school?

Well, it really is the night before school starts! True story.

So, as an attempt to start off on the right foot, I always greet the teacher with a little something.
In fact, last year's treat was my very first blog post on bee in our bonnet.

This year I put together a little first-aid kit. Teacher style.

Very simple. I got mini floss organizers at the craft store and made a little label in photoshop.
plain kit

Then I filled them with Band-Aids, a hand-sanitizer, treats, and other small school stuff.
I was inspired when I was saw this big craft box with school supplies. It is stinkin' cute!

I wrapped it up with a tag. (The apple is from the "hello teacher kit" on house of 3).
1 kit

I want to be nestled, all snug in my bed,
But I'm glad I stayed up and made teacher gifts instead.
Because teachers need kuddos and treats that bring cheer,
And I am just hoping we have a good school year!

I couldn't resist some more rhyming.


I'm sharing at:


  1. We made these last year....but this organizer and label really made it super cute! Great idea! You gals are awesome!

  2. Fun idea, so sorry you have to start school already, and the cheezy poem cracked me up. :)

  3. This is very clever! I have a few more years before I have a child in school, but my husband is a teacher and this stuff is so appreciated.

  4. I bought a tackle box today and we are having so much fun filling it with goodies for my son's teacher! Another tradition we follow is to cook dinner for the teacher for the first day of school!!!

  5. Very cute! I am sure the teachers love your thoughtfulness!

  6. Love it! I think Back to School is my favorite time of year. My little girl will be starting preschool this fall. I think I'll have to make her a special back to school kit!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Made tough in the U.S.A.

  27. Hi! I am having a hard time finding the label for this. Can you help me? It is so cute and I would love to use this idea :)

  28. How can we travel around without using gasoline powered vehicles.

    Dazzling Electric Scooters markets street legal electric motorcycles, 3-wheel scooters, kids scooters,

    electric bikes, electric mountain bike, electric scooter, kids mopeds, electric moped and scooter parts.

    With gas prices climbing over the years this option is worth a look.

    They are also creating an affiliate program where customers or anyone with a web presence can make and

    save money.You can leave them a message at their site.

    They also have a pay with cash option where the customer can make money.

  29. This is a great article. First aid kits are very important to have and should be used for all circumstances. They should also be properly checked to make sure they have the right stuff encase of an emergency. Obviously, for more important injures, you should consider having a Duoderm included in your first aid kit. These are mostly used by doctors but are good for treating pressure areas.

  30. Love this!! Thank you I can't wait to make it for the teachers.

  31. Really Cool idea. A first aid kit is must in school because medical emergencies and injuries are always uninvited and unexpected events.

  32. All the best blogs that is very useful for keeping me share the ideas
    of the future as well this is really what I was looking for, and I am
    very happy to come here. Thank you very much
