How to Create a Travel First Aid Kit for Kids

What to Put in a Travel First Aid Kit

What to include in a travel first aid kit really depends on where you are going.

Anything Brand-Specific

It will save you a lot of stress and keep you from wasting time looking for items at local pharmacies.

Oral Medications

Plasters and bandages are the most important thing if you are camping or planning a remote vacation. You never know when someone will get hurt out in nature.

Tummy Medicine
