Here are the Teacher Survival kits opened up. I put the kit ingredients on the inside lid.
Here's what I put in my tins-
Teacher Survival Kit:
Crayons- to color your day bright and cheerful
Toothpicks- to help you pick out the good qualities in everyone
Hugs & Kisses- for when you need a hug
Eraser- to remind you everyone makes mistakes and they can be erased
Marbles- to replace the ones you’ve lost
Lifesavers- you are a lifesaver to many of your students
Paperclips- to hold it all together
Shiny Penny- to remind you each will shine in their own special way
Ear Plugs- when you just can’t take it anymore
Starburst- to give you a burst of energy when you need it
Tissues- to wipe away the tears…yours and theirs
Gum- to help your class “stick” together
Band-Aids- to help fix any hurt feelings
Play-doh- we all need some “play time”
Glitter- to remind you of how the world looks through a child’s eyes
Battery- to help you keep going & going & going
Clothespin- Hang in there!
I searched the forums to find ingredients and just narrowed them down to the items I wanted to put in mine. There are some great ideas out there! Thanks SCS!

OH MY GOD!! I love these tins!! I made a set of thank you cards for my son's teacher, but will have to make time to CASE a tin for her too!!! His teacher is in her early twenties and just got married over the summer. I'm sure it'll be nice to have something with her "new" name on it!! Thanx for the awesome idea! Great job!!!
