Kids Care kit

The lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer are here. So are the pool trips, the playdates, spending the day out in the sun & heat, bbq eating & traveling with kids! Aaahh, can you smell it? I believe what you smell is fear…of meltdowns, scrapes, tummy aches, sunburns, tears…etc… but fear not, you have a Kids Care kit & you are prepared (and if you don’t, here is how you can get one).



What’s in a Kids Care kit?

First, I want to point out that my kids care kit is not a first aid kit; I have an emergency bag (post coming soon)  in the car for everyone. My Kids Care kit contains everything that I would need for any kid emergency during this summer.  Inside my kit I have the following:

  • Beach Towels
  • Extra Clothes
  • Bathing Suits
  • Wipes
  • Sunscreen
  • sunburn lotion
  • Bug Spray
  • Sunglasses
  • Snacks
  • Gallon size plastic zipper bags
  • Garbage bags
  • water bottles
  • mini sleeping bags
  • a roll of toilet paper
  • coloring books and crayons



Also, I recommend investing in Large ziplock bags this summer! They are amazing! I like to place the kids extra clothes inside of them…but they are also great at holding smelly/dirty/wet clothes. I have also found them to be an amazing way to pack my kids clothes, when traveling on vacation.  An outfit a day per bag! Check out how to pack your kids vacation bag (post coming soon) here.



Lastly, I want to share one finally life changing tip! I have an Ikea Foldable storage box* plastic tub that is large enough to hold my kids sleeping bags, picnic blanket, a waterproof tote bag*,  a kiddie potty* & the kids care kit. I love how it keeps everything so neat an organized and my trunk looking decluttered. I am in my car a lot during the summer and I like knowing where everything is; this plastic tub it helps me find what I am looking for fast! What’s in your Kid Care Kit? comment below please!
