How to Make a Summer Emergency Preparedness Kit

One doesn’t grow up in the Great Lakes State and not spend their summers on the water. These days we live just a few blocks from the ocean and summer vacations involve trips to Michigan where lakes reign supreme. This summer is shaping up to be more of our favorite things. It started with a 1,100 mile road trip from Florida to Michigan to visit our family. It will be 8 weeks of sunshine and summertime in the Great Lakes State. I love taking my kids back home for the summers, as there is no place else I would rather be than Michigan from June through August. It’s a place where the weather is beautiful and lakes reign supreme.

We’re very fortunate that the majority of our family homes are on lakes or within walking distance to lakes. Which means we spend a lot of time bouncing between houses and hanging out on the water. With so many kids running around it’s easy to lose track of the little necessities like sunscreen or earache drops. So I decided to put together a summer fun emergen-sea kit. It includes some of the basics we find ourselves needing during long days on the lake so the fun doesn’t have to stop.

Summer Emergency Preparedness Kit

  • Sunscreen
  • Bug Spray
  • Tissues
  • Anti-Itch Creme
  • Antibiotic Ointment
  • Band Aids
  • Aloe
  • Pain Reliever
  • Hyland’s Ear Drops

Sunscreen and bug spray are a must, but Hyland’s Earache Drops are a staple you might not have thought about. Swimming is the best part of warm weather but oceans and lakes can cause awful earaches. Hyland’s Earache drops are a homeopathically-prepared blend of botanicals and minerals to help relieve symptoms of earaches (including fever, pain, irritability, and sleeplessness).

I pack everything in a plastic zipper bag that’s sand and water friendly. Toss it in the diaper bag and you’ll always have the necessities even for an impromptu trip to the beach.

What would you add to your summer emergency preparedness kit?

    I love the contents of your emergency preparedness kit. Small containers of commonly used items are great. Thanks for sharing I will start making mine too.

    Great idea to have an emergency preparedness kit in your bag every time. You will never know where you’d find yourself at a spur of the moment – at the park playground, the beach or the pool!
