Here’s a super-quick back-to-school project for you.
This only took me about ten minutes, including sewing the bag.
Kids run into little emergencies on the way to and from school—and while they’re there, too. I wanted my son to have a few little extras in his backpack, in case he (or someone else!) falls and skins a knee on the way to school, or forgets their lunch, or any of those other little problems second graders run into.
First, I gathered my supplies. I included two bandages, a small package of tissues, a wet wipe, and a few dollars in cash.
Next, I made a bag to hold the supplies. I chose to sew a bag so the cash wouldn’t be as visible to my son’s classmates. However, you could fold up the money in some paper to hide it, and use a plastic zipper bag to save you some time.
Once you have your supplies and your bag, all you need to do is put everything together and stow it away in your child’s backpack.
I’ve kept this kit pretty simple, but I’m sure there are other things that would be useful. I’d love to have your suggestions in the comments for other items that might come in handy.
