Survival Tips – Preparedness Kit for Kids


Survival Tips - Preparedness Kit for KidsWe all understand that emergencies occur when we least expect them – particularly when kids are involved. Teaching them to be ready for unforeseen events starts at home. And, like school, you’ve got to begin with the basics. putting some basic emergency things in your kid’s bag will facilitate your child be the most prepared kid at school. And, knowing that your kid has his or her basic desires met will calm your concerns while they’re away.

Studies have shown, that a child is less scared of unforeseen circumstances when they understand they’ll handle the situation on their own. Having the correct tools at their disposal will considerably cut back their stress levels, whereas at a similar time, provide them alittle of comfort during a stressful event. Consequently, your child’s self confidence can increase because he feels entrusted by you with these emergency items.

I have invariably advocated that every person should have a personal preparedness kit that they carry around with them – and firmly believe kids should be educated this as well. Most of those little preparedness things can work handily into a pencil bag, or alittle sized bag with a zipper. These things were approved through the school nurse at my children’s school. Before packing up these basic emergency things, check with your child’s principal, school nurse or teacher.

  • Bandages
  • First aid ointment
  • Chapstick
  • Whistle/compass combination
  • Pen/tablet
  • Light stick or wind up flashlight
  • Emergency Mylar blanket
  • Sanitary bags
