So the kids want to make something special for dad this father’s day. He’s got enough mugs and T-shirts, so how about making something that dad can use around the house. I found this mini-first aid kit in the travel section of a discount department store for only 99 cents. It had everything needed for a minor mishap in the garage or workshop. For just a few pennies more kids can easily personalize it for Dad’s day.
You will need:
Mini first aid kit (mine was 3” x 4”)
Pieces of brown embossed felt
Precut felt or foam letters
1. Measure the top of the box and cut out a piece of felt to fit. Trim if necessary. It looks nice if there is a tiny margin around the edges.
2. Spread a generous amount of glue onto the top of the box and attach the piece of felt.
3. Glue the letters of your choice on top. Here is where you can get creative. If your letters are small enough and don’t interfere with the box closing you can even attach letters along the sides.
Hint: If you have teeny, tiny band-aids lying around that are always too small to use for anything, they look cool glued to the top of the box.
