As any parent knows—especially those with boys—it never hurts to be prepared for anything. Nobody wants to have to clean up their kid’s bloody nose or a bruise with whatever napkins and hand lotion you can find in the glovebox! This is why it’s so important to have a car emergency kit ready to go for whatever life throws at you and your family.
Here’s a great car emergency kit checklist to use as a baseline!
□ Baby Wipes
□ Children’s and Adult Ibuprofen
□ Instant ice pack
□ Various assorted Band-Aids/bandages
□ Children’s and Adult Acetaminophen
□ Migraine medicine
□ Hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes
□ Eye drops
□ Anti-nausea medicine
□ Bottles of water
□ Bug repellent
□ Cortisone Cream
□ Antibiotic ointment
Find a nice little box with a lid that will slide under your car’s seat, the trunk or another little spot tucked out of the way. You’ll probably get much more use than you think out of this handy car emergency kit—especially if you have kids! You may have to skip a few of the medications due to the extreme heat we experience in Peoria and the rest of the valley that may cause some medications to lose potency. Check the packaging for each medication for more information.
