Introduction: Altoids Tin Anti-Boredom Survival Kit

Have you ever had to wait in line at a store, or ever said to yourself, "Man, I wish I had ______ right now." Well with this simple instructable you will never feel that way again.


You'll need:
An Altoids tin
Rubber bands
6 inches by 6 inches of carpeting
paper clips
mini bottle of hot sauce
cable tie
golf pencil
dental floss
some lead free, really bendable wire that won't break when you bend it
a few quarters
a few sticks of stride gum(approx 4 sticks)
a binder clip
some duct tape
some tin foil
some airsoft 7 mm. beebes
and some brains.

(If I forgot anything be sure to comment what I forgot down below.)
THe tools you'll need are:

pliers
a hole puncher
scissors
hands
duct tape
and more brains

(If I forgot anything be sure to comment what I forgot down below.)

Step 1: Starting

To make the mini golf course, you will need to make a hole near a corner with your awl, or hole puncher. the beebes are the golf balls.
to store the beebes, make a 3 in by 3 in square of tin foil, and put a few beebes, inside he tinfoil, and wrap them up with the foil. The golf course turf itself, fits on the lid. 

Step 2: Altoids Tin "anti - Boredom Survival Kit"

After the golf course, you pretty much put everything so it fits snug. There really is nothing else necessary to help with making the tin.
I hope this helps as an anti boredom kit and I've got some other ibles on the way.

    Good kit but how did you get the carpet to fit and since you like to fiddle maybe put a small nut and bolt in there to play around with.
    Thanks

    definitely nut and bolt i forgot that. Everyone should include that. Did you include the nut and bolt in your kit?? and carpet had to be trimmed a little bit but it fit perfectly. i used some velcro on the back and velcro on the top lid of the altoids tin so that it would stay in when opened

    i like hot sauce, and it always spikes things up if you're down, or just in general. I'm glad you made an Anti-Boredom kit as well. now im not sure if this particular one is still arond, but i am still trying to find a circular or oval altoids tin to make a mini grill out of

    What's the hot sauce for? Besides that, it's great! I have some spare altitudes tins that might come in handy.

    Thank you! I actually had this instructable saved to my account on Instructables in September, and I wondered why it wasn't showing, so I hit publish ssnd it came!

    What is the point of the golf course? there is no hole, so do you just freestyle it? Plus, what is the floss, and wire? AND would you mind if i made one purely about mini golf (improved) and posted it?

    Thanks

    It's for fiddling around. I get really bored and just fiddle around with wire. Floss for string, or other stuff. Actually, there IS a hole on the golf course, you can't see it. The Instructables uploader didn't work for some of the pics. I'll try. It wasn't supposed to be the best. Sorry for your inconvenience.

    Ok that makes sense. I am going to make one purely on golf. And another on skeeball.

    I'll make it. Last year i I was on a hunt to make a mini skeeball machine. If it weren't for looking up on google how to make one, I would have never found Instructables. Go SKEEBALL! Actually, smallenginetech already made a mini altoids tin golf course, and entered it into the pocket sized contest, but no one has thought of skee ball yet! good luck

    Thanks. Im not sure how soon it will be on instructables, because my camera has mysteriously stopped working recently.

    @monsterlego: thanks for the nice comment on my first ible. i'll be making a new one in a few weeks.
