First Aid and CPR BookFirst Aid Kit in a Plastic BoxI believe every parent should have a well stocked first aid kit and a good CPR book.  You never know when you’ll need it, but if you do you’ll be ready.  I personally like to use a mid size plastic container with latches and a carry handle.  You want your box to be roomy enough to store all of your supplies, a solar blanket, and your CPR book.  It’s a good idea to tape your list of emergency contact numbers to the top of your box.  I buy an average sized first aid kit and then I add the items below if they are not included.

  • Hydrogen Peroxide
  • Neosporin
  • Alcohol Wipes
  • Tweezer
  • Fingernail Clipper
  • Safety Pins
  • Sterile Gauze
  • Adhesive Tape & Gauze Rolls
  • Bandages in Multiple Sizes
  • Self Sticking Elastic Bandages
  • Tylenol – Child & Adult
  • Thermometer
  • Latex Gloves
  • Flashlight & Batteries
  • Solar and/or Fleece Blanket
  • Your Emergency Numbers
