***Kits also available for grades 1-2 and grades 3-4.***

To prepare for the 10 Days Survival Kit you will need some type of container to store each day’s materials. We purchased 10 gift boxes from Amazon and glued the printable suitcase label on each box. You can also use shirt boxes, gift bags, or plastic bins.

The read-aloud books are not included. Check out your local and school libraries. These books are just suggestions. You can also choose your own books that go along with the daily theme.
