- Small putty or play dough (or some other tactile item)
- Tiny animals or play creatures (ours was purchased from the craft store)
- Snack or treat
- Rubber band
This DIY MiniKit is the perfect travel kid kit to take on the go. Place all the items in the box and place the rubber band around the outside to make sure it stays together. Use it at restaurants, the dentist’s office, church, or anywhere your kids may need some quiet activities to keep them quiet or happy.
Of course, you can add or take away from our material list! If you find something your child loves and it fits in this box, then put it in!
