Teacher Emergency Kit

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 am good 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
*lint roller
*nail file
*hair bands
*dental floss
*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!
