The other day following our back to school party my kindergardener grandson was showing and telling his daddy all about his new Back Pack Buddy he had received as a party favor. I had filled the little boxes with all kind of "just in case items" for the new school year.
Before I distributed the buddies to each child we first talked about the items inside and how we could use them using a sample one I had made for myself.
Among other things the boxes included band-aids and non-medicated cherry throat drops. Scratches had come up twice during our conversation. One being falling and scratching our skin and the other being a scratchy throat as reasons we may find the items useful.
When speaking to his daddy my grandson pulled out a throat drop and said; "This is for scratches!" His daddy; "You mean for scratchy throats?" Grandson; "Nope, (holding his arms out) you get a scratch, eat this, and the scratch disappears!"
