Kids are like magnets for cuts, scrapes, bumps and bruises. And my toddler can trip over air. I have serisously considered investing in a helmet. Or bubble wrap. Or a giant hampster ball.
But I can't protect him from every scrape and cut. So I packed my diaper bag with a first aid kit.
I had seen this really cute one on Amazon. But they are $7. $7???? for a peice of plastic with bandages inside of it? That's crazy. Who would buy that?
I had an old Crystal Light container lying around, so I decided to make one myself. It's not as cute, but it gets the job done. And I got all of the supplies at the Dollar Tree or free with my CVS ExtraCare bucks!
A ton of stuff fits inside:
Two gauze pads
4 alcohol wipes
12 standard Band-Aids
6 small Band-Aids
2 knee and eblow bandages
triple antibiotic ointment
a bar of soap
