Big Sister Survival Kit

I've been working hard getting things ready for little man's arrival, which is less than two weeks away. For the most part my bags are packed, clothes are washed and we have what he will sleep in. That is all I need, right? 

Anyhow, one of the big things on my to do list before he gets here was making a survival kit for big sister Avery. I have it packed for the hospital so it's there when she visits Luke for the first time. I wanted to include items in it that would keep her busy and entertained while she was there once the newness of her little brother wore off. 

Here is what I included in the survival kit:

This adorable and personalized notebook is from Tiny Prints. I'm absolutely in love with how it came out and the quality of the notebook. Avery loves to color and write in all of my notebooks so I figured she would love one of her own. I personalized it with pictures of our family on the front, it makes me smile every time I look at it. 

Princess Wand
This was a Target Dollar Spot find. She is obsessed with all things princess right now, I have a feeling this magical wand will be a big hit. 

Frozen Play Pack
Another Target Dollar Spot find. Again, she is princess (and Frozen) obsessed right now. 

Arts and Crafts. 
Again….Target Dollar Spot for the win! She loves to color so I thought this would be a fun little craft for her to do.  

Minnie Mouse Play Camera 
I'm sure we will all be picture crazy when Avery meets Luke for the first time. I thought it would be fun for her to have her own little camera to pretend to take pictures with as well. If she was a bit older, I would totally give her a disposable camera. 

Avery absolutely loves these. They are great to take on the road and out to dinner. All they require is a little water and are reusable. They don't make a mess and keep her entertained for a while. This is a new notebook and she loves animals, I think she'll be obsessed. 

Fruit Snacks
One of her favorites that she doesn't have on a regular basis. 
Tried to put "new" things in it that she won't put to the side in three seconds. 

Animal Crackers
when in doubt feed the toddler!


One of my most popular posts on this blog is the survival kit I made for hubs before Avery was born.
I didn't want to forget about him this time around either. I decided to put together a little basket of his favorite sweets and treats for the hospital. In this survival kit I included gummy bears, trail mix, Twizzlers, gum, chap stick, protein bars, mints, Kit Kat and Starbursts candy.

  1. Survival Things Our Great-Grandfathers Built Or Did Around The House

    People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.

    These guys were the last generation to practice basic things-for a living-that we call survival skills now.

    Are you ready to turn back the clocks to the 1800s for up to three years?

    Because this is what will happen after the next SHTF event.
