Mini Scouting First Aid Kit

When I was a Girl Scout, we made mini first aid kits in film containers. With digital photography taking over, film containers are hard to come by, but mini mint tins make for perfect mini first aid kits that you can slip in a backpack, or even your pocket!

This Scout Craft is part of Craft Lightning Week. All week long, my crafty co-hosts Angie from The Country Chic Cottage and Laura from Me and My Inklings, along with our crafty friends here on the internet, are sharing scout-related crafts! Check out their fun ideas at the bottom of this post.

Mini Scouting First Aid Kit - a perfect craft for Cub Scouts or Girl Scouts - easy to make and super useful!

This craft project is a requirement in both the Brownie and Wolf Cub Scout handbooks, so you’ll be making a cute craft, a useful item, and checking off a requirement all at once!

Supplies for mini tin first aid kit

Make a copy of your scouting design. I used the brownie on the front of the brownie handbook shrunk down to 75%, and the scout logo in the handbook, increased to 125%. Trace the lid of the tin, then cut out.

Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge on top of the tin.

Allow to dry, then put the supplies inside. You can fit two or three bandages, neosporin, and an alcohol wipe folded in half.
