Most of the items you will only need one or two of. The amounts are not meant to be large because you are creating a kit with items for a one time use and then to be replenished. I keep one dose of pain reliever and allergy meds for my family in a labeled bag. Hand sanitizer is always important before snacks, after who-knows-what, and I've even used a little on my neck if I don't have body spray! Lip balm and a little cover up are all I need in a pinch and lip balm makes a great bribe or reward for kids (#dontjudge #ithappens). A bobby pin or hair band can fix almost any hair issue, especially if you have a daughter! And a tissue can work for runny noses, tears, dabbing cuts or scrapes, and with a little hand sanitizer can work as a wipe in a pinch. Here's another tip: make sure the bandaid you include is a colored or character one. It helps calm the tears faster and you can even use it as a sticker if needed!
But a few of the items it's worth having an entire pack of! The new Extra® 35-stick pack features more gum for you and for everyone else because as a mom we 'Give Extra, Get Extra!' You can find Extra® Gum Spearmint and Extra® Gum Polar Ice® packs at your local Walmart. I found them right by the checkout so it was really convenient to add them to my cart! It even features durable, recycled packaging.
Extra® Gum is a huge essential for any Mommy Emergency Kit. It helps freshen breath after a meal, works as a treat, or a way to tide over your children before meals! If you work outside the home, the new Extra® 35-stick packs are convenient to keep/split between your desk and your purse, too or your purse and the car.
To create your kit, all you need to do is add all your items to the pouch and make sure you never forget it at home!
Can you think of any other must-have items besides Extra® Gum you would add to your Mommy Emergency Kit?
