Kids Grab-N-Go

Updated: Apr 22

All family members need a Grab 'n Go bag prepared for a quick emergency get away. It is important to change out food, medication and clothing as they grow. Once a year works. Set a yearly date that everyone in the family changes out their packs.

Many have planned a family activity where everyone empties their bag, prepares and eats the food and snacks in it, checks to see if the clothing still fits, then re-packs with updated supplies, food and clothing. Rotate out the toothpaste, lotion, chapstick and diapers, wet wipes, etc.

When kids take part in the activity, they learn skills, what foods they like, how to prepare and pack it. They make the experience theirs and see the value of preparation, it helps them take ownership and responsibility.

Here are some ideas and a pdf list follows
