This is a simple project and you most likely won't even have to buy anything. You can use whatever you have around the house. I'm just giving you guidelines.
1. Find A Container: I got an empty coffee can and washed it out- it actually works perfectly.
2. Cover the container: I took craft paper (actually out of a package that was shipped), cut it to the right size and taped it on.
3. Fill it full of goodies: You are going to want to include a few items that you know will keep your little one occupied and a few new things that will grab his attention. I included some lacing cards, magic slate boards, stencils, crayons, and small coloring books. I also include a new finger puppet and a new slinky. They can even color on the container.
4. Sanitize: I included boogie wipes, a travel thing of Clorox wipes, hand sanitizer, and a travel can of Lysol. You can also include some grocery bags and turn the container into a "puke bucket."
5. Include some snacks: It would be a good idea to keep a couple of healthy single-serve snacks that you know your little one will eat. When they are sick, it is hard to get them to eat healthy, so having a special "treat" on hand is great. I included apple crisps and a CLIF kids bar.
This Sick Kid Toolkit is completely customizable for your family. I just wanted to share what I did to give an idea. What would you include in your sick kid toolkit?
