School’s officially out and the days are getting longer and warmer, which means more trips to the park, pool, beach and more. With a toddler around, more time spent playing outside also means more “boom booms” as M calls them! I decided that with all of our outdoor adventures, it would be a good idea to put together a little on-the-go first aid kit of sorts. I came across a super cute idea to make an “ouch pouch”, containing everything one needs in case of a “boom boom” and modified the idea a bit to include the things I deemed necessary for a summer on-the-go kit suitable to grab and throw in any bag on the way out the door to our summer activities, regardless of what they are.
Here’s what’s in my “ouch pouch”:
- antibacterial hand wipes
- hand lotion
- hand sanitizer
- homemade, natural bug spray (find the recipe here)
- bandaids (in a variety of sizes)
- antiseptic wipes
- gauze pads
- Earth Mama, Angel Baby Bottom Balm (for rashes, eczema spots, burns, scrapes, bug bites, basically anything and everything!)
- and last but certainly not least… a sucker (cause they make everything feel better, right?!)
What else could you include?? Pain reliever, allergy medicine, Epi pen (for kiddos with severe allergies), inhaler, snacks/granola bars, basically anything you think you might need!! Having it all put together in a portable little pouch makes it super easy for you to grab and go!
Happy Summer! 🙂
