No matter where we’re going, though, I like to be prepared, and I’m to help you put together your own Travel Emergency Kit with Free Printables!
There’s so many times where we’ve been out running errands and one of the kids scrapes their leg – and of course there’s no band-aid. Or my daughter gets car sick and I completely forgot the Dramamine. I’ve learned the hard way that whether we’re running to dance lessons, the grocery store or on a two-day road trip, things happen and I need to be prepared. This is why I keep our Travel Emergency Kits in every vehicle, and toss one in a bag when we head out for a flight.
The great thing about these kids is you can customize it to YOUR families needs! We have an extra of my daughter’s inhalers in it, in case she has an asthma attack when we’re not home. Perhaps there’s an important medication that you don’t want to be caught without if your vehicle breaks down and you’re gone longer than expected. The basic idea is to just have the basics, then the very important specific items, that work for your family.

Of course these are just some general ideas, you can switch it up as you please! I like having a separate container for medicines and first aid than our other supplies – but that’s just my personal preference.
Our Free Printable Travel Kit sheet has several different sizes, so you shouldn’t have a problem fitting them to whatever container(s) you select! Just make sure to check your medicines and such for expiration dates periodically, and that they’re secured so children can’t get into things they shouldn’t.
