We spend A LOT of time in the swagger wagon during the school year and on road trips, so it’s safe to say you could probably live out of my van for a week or so. I’m not kidding! There’s always a wide selection of clothing, snacks, toys and just about anything else you would need to keep yourself occupied!
All kidding aside, one of the essential items that is always in the back of the van is our first aid kit. Thankfully, I haven’t had to use it much, but it’s always there and it’s come to the rescue on several occasions for my kids, myself and family/friends who happen to be with us! I also stash a smaller version of the kit in my bag and our suitcase when traveling, so I’m never without the essentials. Here’s how I created our portable first aid kits with items I picked up while shopping at Target last week!
How to Create a First Aid Kit for the Car
- Find a toilet kit bag or dedicated first aid bag (ours came with first aid supplies we had purchased at the drug store).
- Make a list of first aid products that you frequently use in the family such as: bandages, gauze, medical tape, antibacterial ointment, antihistamines, anti-itch lotion, Epi-Pen, tweezers, small scissors, sun lotion, Children’s MOTRIN®, Children’s TYLENOL®, adult pain relievers, and anything else you can use regularly.
- I find it helpful to use snack-size zippered sandwich bags to store smaller quantities of bandages and other first aid products, since we usually buy those in bulk! 🙂
- If you have room to spare in your first aid kit, it’s helpful to stash some granola bars and other non-perishable snacks in case you would happen to get stuck somewhere! A few bottles of water are also great to put in your bag/box.
- Write down any relevant medical information and doctor’s contact information, so you will have it on hand in case of emergency.
When it comes to reducing fevers and relieving pain in children, TYLENOL® is the brand recommended most by pediatricians. Children’s TYLENOL® works differently than other pain and fever medicine. It also won’t upset little stomachs. For children ages 2-11, Children’s TYLENOL® is the #1 pediatrician recommended brand for pain & fever and used by moms for over 60 years. It’s available in Cherry Blast and Grape flavors at your local Target!
Children’s MOTRIN® has always been our go-to for fever reducing. It can help your kids bounce back by relieving their pain or fever. Available in Bubble Gum, Grape and Berry flavors, it lasts up to 8 hours. It’s indicated for children ages 2 to 11 years– use only as directed.
Get positively prepared with the right pain relief for you and your family at Target.
