Last year the Monkey Boys and I talked about having a treasure box to store the special items they
would accumulate throughout their childhood. Plastic boxes tend to break, cardboard can get soggy if
it gets wet, but an AMMO BOX...now that's solid! It's the perfect place to keep treasures!
Ace Hardware had just the right size ammo boxes and a little stenciling personalized each one with
their name and the word "Treasures." The Monkey Boys are gonna love these!
Shhh...it's one of their gifts for Christmas...in 7 days!
I have fond memories of an ammo box my parents had while I was growing up.
It was really special!
No, it wasn't filled with any ammo, just first aid items.
Linda at Food Storage Moms made one that looks just like the one my parents had.
Love it! She said I could use her pic. Thanks, Linda!
That ammo box was always filled with band aids, gauze, and antiseptic like that orange stuff.
Who remembers Mercurochrome or Merthiolate?
Those cuts or skinned knees burned so bad when that stuff was put on it!
Of course, you had to blow on the Mercurochrome to make it dry and to stop that painful feeling,
plus the orange color on your skin definitely displayed the injury for all to see!
Treasure boxes or first aid kits...ammo boxes work great for both of them!
I can't wait to see what treasures the Monkey Boys will put in their ammo boxes!
I'm sure they will fill it up quickly!
