So I'm pretty sure all of us teachers have had that, "Oops I forgot deodorant this morning" or "Does anyone have any Tylenol" moment at least once in your teaching career!
I thought that image was too funny and goes perfect with this post. However, I do have to say that I amgood about putting deodorant on every morning except that one time that I didn't and had to stop on the way to work for some...could have used a Teacher Emergency Kit that day!
I have seen a few Teacher Emergency Kit posts on Pinterest and Blog Posts. Lori from Conversations in Literacy has a great Teacher Survival Kit post and includes a lot of great things in her kit!
Well all of these ideas got me thinking and I decided to put together Teacher Emergency Kits for my teammates as Back to School gifts!I think the idea of an emergency kit is genius because we've all had those moments of needing something and not having it.
I started off with getting the containers. I decided to go with the Sterlite shoebox size containers from Target. They are less than $1 each!
Next I headed over to the travel section because I knew there would be the perfect sized items for an emergency kit.Originally I just picked up a few things and then the list just kept growing!
**You know your list of items has grown when your husband says to you, "I'm assuming these waters are for your Teacher Emergency Kits???" :)
Here is a picture of what everything looks like inside the kit:
Each kit has:
*A bottle of water
*2 mini bags of pretzels
*1 box of m&m candy
*Tide to Go stick
Here is a close-up of everything:
I'm excited to give these to my kindergarten teamies!! I may have also made one for myself!!
If you are thinking this is something you would like to make for your teammates, I am including the Teacher Emergency Kit label as a FREEBIE! Just click the picture to download! I laminated the labels and then hot glued them on the lid of the container.
I'd love to hear if you have a Teacher Emergency Kit in your classroom and what items you have! Happy Back to School Season!
