First aid kits and contents can vary with your activities, but having basic supplies on hand is key. An at home first aid kit is a must and keeping a smaller kit for the car or taking on hikes or walks is a good idea. Beth Goodale joins me as we talk about what we have learned over the years about first aid.
Beth is a mom of three. Two have graduated and one is in 5th grade and all of them have been outdoor kids. Beth is also a nurse who has great insight on keeping safe in the outdoors. We both comprised our own list of must-haves for a kit to take on-the-go.
I keep an old picnic basket in my trunk with supplies. My list changes with seasons and the age of my children. I also keep a small backpack at home with a ziptop bag with supplies for hikes and walks. These are the items I shared in the video.
I usually include wipes and bungee cords. We have needed bungee cords on more than one occasion and had a difficult time finding them at gas stations.
Outdoor adventures with children are fun and a great way to spend days in your week. Often times moms are apprehensive to take their children on outdoor activities away from home by themselves. If you plan a kit in advance and take simple steps to teach your children to use a whistle or other safety measure, you can feel confident to venture out on your own.
