First Aid

To build your personal first aid kit,  use a snack bag or waterproof cell phone case.

From there, fill with items to deal with the most frequent things that happen outside.  This should reflect where you live and play


  • 2 gloves-to keep your germs out of their wound
  • Bandaids in various sizes
  • Antibiotic cream
  • 1 2×2 gauze pad
  • Needle stick through the 2×2 if you have a hard case
  • Moleskin or 1-2 corn pads
  • Anti itch cream
  • Tweezers
  • Aloe Vera pack
  • Alcohol swabs.(2)
  • Soap swab (2)


If you have room, add:

  • Extras of the most frequently used items, above
  • Breathing barrier for cpr
  • 1 4×4 gauze pad
  • Single pack of Gatorade in a separate snack bag or 2 sugar packs and 3 salt packs to add to your water bottle for dehydration ( does not taste as good as Gatorade)
  • Lip balm
  • Small solar blanket
  • Iodine tab in sealed package
  • 2 waterproof matches
  • Small bottle of eye solution

With this, you can treat cuts, scrapes, fishhook, sunburn, blisters, ticks, splinters, burns, insect bites and nosebleeds. You can stop blood flowing with the 4×4 and your bandana. Replace the bandana if need be. Solution washes out eyes and wounds. Matches create fire which is useful for cold. Iodine kills germs and purifies water.
