No matter how much, or how little you know about medicine, every household first aid cupboard will have an assortment of plasters, expired cough syrup, painkillers and a thermometer. You can make some nifty arts and crafts with a thermometer clipart to pay homage to this wondrous temperature gauge.

Hard to believe we actually had deadly mercury wrapped in brittle glass as a standard household item ...that parents just shoved under their fidgety kid’s armpits, and hoped for the best. Thankfully, the digital thermometer has long since taken over... even though it is harder to fake a fever to skip school with them.
