These kits contain all sorts of items, from bandages to cotton balls and plaster mixtures that can be used for healing in case of minor injuries, burns or abrasions. But what happens if your kids lose their first aid kit? Luckily, there are things you can do to prevent them from losing their precious first aid supplies – from replacing them to storing them properly. Here are a few steps you can follow:

Store your children’s first aid kits properly. They should be stored in a place where they will not be disturbed. If you have a garage, you can use it for storing your kit. A closet or a cupboard in the house is ideal. You may also want to consider purchasing a backpack instead of using a large first aid kit bag. This is because you don’t want to have to lift the bag while it is heavy.

Make Sure You Label Each One Clearly

When you replace your children’s first aid kits, make sure you label each one clearly. Put a photo of the kit on the outside, so you can easily identify it while looking through the kit. In addition, keep a pen with your name or phone number written on it, so you can easily call an ambulance or doctor if anyone has any questions about the contents of the kit.

When you have finished storing your first aid kit, remember to label it well. This will help you find it if you need to use it again. Store the box of the kit in a safe place away from children. Place it in a location where it cannot easily be tampered with, such as in the garage or basement. If you have a lock on the cabinet, then place a padlock over it as well, so no one will be able to get into the box.

Replace Them With New Ones

If your children’s first aid kits are old, then make sure that you replace them with new ones. It is important that you keep the original size of the kit. Childrens tend to swallow their fingers when they try to open the sealed first aid kit. A smaller kit will be easier for them to open. In addition, it should be more colorful than the rest of their first aid kits.

As a parent, it may be hard to teach your children about first aid. After all, you probably did not get into this field yourself. In order to teach them early on, you can buy children’s first aid kits and fill them with colorful first aid paint. Whenever any of your children starts feeling ill or uncomfortable, you can simply take out the color of the first aid kit and show them what is inside of it.

A Fire Extinguisher

It is also helpful if you could make sure that you have a fire extinguisher near the childrens’ area. You just never know when your child might need it. Before you buy a fire extinguisher, however, make sure that you research the type of extinguisher that you want to purchase. 

This way, you will know that you are getting the right one for your child. One of the most important things that you can do while taking children’s first aid courses is to remain calm. 


Do not panic when your child is in difficulty. Panic will only make things worse. First aid courses are meant to educate people on how to help children. If your child feels more comfortable talking to you, then you will find that he or she will open up more. Keep calm yourself and encourage your child.
