How To Make a Simple Travel First Aid Kit 

Spring is here and the great outdoors calls us to come out and play. For our little ones, Mother Nature has everything that one could need, not only to fill up our hearts but also to nurture an ouch, bite or bump. While we are out exploring, I like to feel prepared to care for basic ouchies. I have a simple first aid kit that I keep in my backpack for hikes, picnics and play dates to tend to any minor bumps or bruises. It is made from a piece of thick felt and a recycled ribbon. As you can see, I am not going for a pinterest worthy post here, i just want you to see how easy it can be made and not feel intimidated by a gorgeous custom embroidered kit. Now those of you who are gifted with a needle and thread, PLEASE feel welcome to share your creations too 🙂

A sweet little blessing for ouchies:

"Pat it, kiss it, stroke it, bless it;
Three days' sunshine, three days' rain,
Little hand(or knee) all well again."

Some of my favorite healing items:

A little birdie finger puppet to give a kiss.
