My Summer First-Aid Kit for Kids #Moms4JNJConsumer



We always have a first-aid kit stocked at our house and I have some essentials in my diaper bag, but during the summer everything changes. We are always on the go and our whole family is so much more active which means more accidents. I like to be prepared for anything that happens, so I have a special first-aid kit stocked just for summer. Most of my essentials are specific for my kids – but you know what? Even Mom likes to sport a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Band-Aid if needed!

Summer First Aid Kit for Kids

Some of the must-have essentials for my Summer First-Aid Kit for Kids include:

– Neutrogena Pure and Free Baby Sunscreen: We apply sunscreen before we leave the house but I always have some with my in the diaper bag so we can reapply if needed.

– Fun Band-Aids: Johnson and Johnson has a ton of fun Band-Aids for kids. In our summer first-aid kit, I always keep something like TMNT or Phineas and Ferb Band-aids for my kids.

– Neosporin to Go: This is something I keep in our bag year-round because I love how I can just clip it. We always seem to use it all the time though during the summer.

– Children’s Zyrtec: We discovered a few months ago that my son has seasonal allergies. His pediatrician recommended Zyrtec and while it lasts all day, I keep an extra pack in our on the go first-aid kit just in case we forgot to take it while at home.

– Children’s Motrin: Another thing that is in our first-aid kit year-round, but good for summer! It’s great for if your child is in pain while not at home and they need some relief.

– Children’s Benadryl Itch Cooling Gel: Ugh – bug bites! They love my children as much as I do! Luckily, this gel helps relieve them from itching!

– Ice Packs: I try to keep an ice pack in our first-aid kit that you can snap and it instantly cools. It’s great for those bumps and bruises at the park – although my son has discovered that sno-cones work too!

    Those are all great selections. We camped over the 4th of July weekend and every part of my essentials kit was used, from the Benadryl to the Band-Aids, everyone needed something. It’s always nice to be stocked up, just in case. You just never know.

    The kids love cartoon band aids. It’s always good to carry these around – they can always come in handy.

    I keep a first aid kit in my purse, a mini one. And we keep the bathrooms stocked. Not having that stuff around is always exactly when you need it, so I keep it without fail. :)

    Thank you for all the The HEALTHY ESSENTIALS coupons! I will be taking advantage of them for our First Aid kit. We also include Benadryl, anti itch pen for those pesky mosquito bites and hand sanitizer.

    Great tips! I’ve never seen the Benadryl cool itch cream, I NEED that , my kids get eaten alive no matter what spray we use. I’m going to stock up tonight lol!

    Neosporin, bandaids and betadyne for sure are in my first aid kit. I love the items you highlighted. I use benedryl a lot too!!

  7. says

    Sunscreen, bug spray, bandages, and neosporin are my must haves in a first aid kit. I also tuck in a small toy to keep the twins attention when applying bandages.

    Those are awesome things to put in our “emergency” bag! My son and I both really get ate up by mosquito. I also bring along alcohol swabs helps clean the skin and helps us with the itchiness of the bug bites!
