Materials Needed for Each Survival Kit:
- Survival Kit Contents (See List Below)
- Paper or Card Stock
- Printer or Pen
- Small Container or Zip-Top Sandwich Bag
- Items to Decorate (Optional)
- Stapler (If you use a zip-top sandwich bag) or Craft Glue (For any other Container)
Instructions:Gather together the survival kit contents below and place them in your container or zip-top sandwich bag.
- Round Chocolate Candy: To replace any golf balls you lose.
- Tee: To replace any you might forget.
- Lifesaver: To help you maneuver around any water hazards.
- Rubber Band: To help you stay flexible when you swing.
- Flag: To help you easily find all of the holes.
- Ace: Here's hoping you get a hole-in-one!
- Plastic Egg: To help you get birdies!
- Cotton Ball: To help soften the roughs.
- Sponge: Hope this helps when you need to clean your ball.
- Pencil: To help you keep track of the real score.
- Band-Aid: To cover your blisters.
- Eraser: To help you start each game with a clean slate.
- Snickers Bar: To laugh and have fun while you play.
- Aspirin: For the headache golf can sometimes cause.
Instead of plain, chocolate balls, see if you can find chocolate golf balls (compare prices). You can make a tiny flag by gluing a triangle shaped piece of felt or paper to a toothpick. Use an ace from an old deck of cards. Use a small piece cut from a large sponge if you can't find a small sponge. When possible, use miniature versions of the candy bars. See if you can find the single packs of aspirin that contain 2 pills.
Now you need to print a label for your container or a tag for your zip-top bag.
If You are Using a Container:Download and print out the container label below. This label lists and explains all of the items included in your survival kit. You can download either the JPG version or PDF version of this label template. Right click on your desired version here and then save it to your computer:
For the best results, make sure your printer is set to print the actual size of the image (at 100% size). The label measures 5" x 5". You can adjust the size as needed, but you may lose some quality. Cut out the label and then you can attach it to the container using small dabs of glue spaced evenly around the edges of the paper. You may want to decorate or paint the container before you fill it and attach the label.
If You are Using a Zip-Top Sandwich Bag:If you are using a plastic sandwich bag to hold your items, you will want to use one of my printable bag tags. They are created to print out 7" x 7".
Download and print out either the JPG version or PDF version, preferably on card stock:
Again, make sure your printer is set to print the actual size of the image (at 100% size). As I mentioned above, the printed bag tag should measure 7" x 7". The template is created to be the same width as a sandwich bag and to fold over the top of the bag, with about 2-inches showing on the front of the bag and 5-inches on the back.
Cut out the bag tag. Fold it over the top of the filled zip-lock bag and staple it in place. If you want to see what a finished bag looks like, check out this hockey player's survival kit.
