Traveling with Grandkids? Pack Your KEEP>GOING First Aid Kit!
If you’re planning a trip with your grandkids, get ready for a fun, memorable, and exhausting time! But before you throw the beach toys and floppy hats into your suitcase, be sure to grab your KEEP>GOING First Aid Kit bag. When children are around, anything can happen and as the Supervisor, Activities Director, Navigator, and Chef of the trip, you’re responsible for handling these mishaps.
With your KEEP>GOING compact First Aid Kit in the passenger seat, you’ll be ready to save the day. Score some grandparent points by being up for anything and equipped to handle every emergency situation. Here are a few items in your family First Aid Kit you may find yourself using while at the pool, out to dinner, or on a hike with the grandkids.
There’s no wound too big or small for your KEEP>GOING kid friendly First Aid Kit. It’s jam-packed with assorted bandages to cover any boo-boo. Whether your grandchild got a little ambitious with a backflip into the pool or didn’t stick the landing when jumping off the swing, it’s nothing a bandage can’t fix. Your grandkid will love choosing which patterned bandage they want to show off.
You can also use a knuckle, fingertip, or extra-large bandage (aka knee and elbow bandage) for those tricky wounds. Dealing with a large wound? Use the gauze and first aid tape in your personal First Aid Kit to reduce the pain and mitigate the risk for infection.
For wound treatment remember to “clean-treat-protect”. Non-sting antiseptic wipes (your grandkids will love the “non-sting” part!) for cleaning the wound and triple antibiotic cream for treating the wound are also included in your KEEP>GOING travel First Aid Kit.
If you’re on vacation with your grandchildren, chances are you’ll be spending a lot of time outside. In addition to lip balm, hand sanitizer, and antibiotic cream (all included in your KEEP>GOING GoKit), you may also find yourself whipping out the hydrocortisone cream packet quite a few times.
Hydrocortisone cream reduces the body’s immune response to bug bites, skin irritations, or mild allergic reactions. Swelling, itching, burning, and inflammation may occur if your grandchild gets a mosquito bite, which could lead to tears and pouting. Apply a thin layer of hydrocortisone cream to the affected area and they should feel instant relief (and an improved mood)!
As a grandparent, you want your grandchildren to be smiling all the time! But bad weather, a minor injury, or a disagreement with a brother or sister may be enough to ruin your family fun. If you sense a mood change coming on, be ready with the fun and colorful children’s stickers found in your KEEP>GOING First Aid Kit bag.
Present this assortment of stickers to your grandchild and allow them to choose their favorite fun animal. Instantly, the tears will disappear and the day will be saved!
A vacation with your grandkids is a great time for bonding and memory-making. But being prepared for anything is crucial for a fun and successful trip. Your KEEP>GOING First Aid Kit was Designed to Help! Tuck it in your luggage and feel confident as you travel, knowing you’re ready for whatever comes your way.
