DIY Car First Aid Kit

I’m a fan of trying to stay prepared. Trying is the word here because if you are a parent then you know that trying is half the battle. As a Chick-fil-a Mom for 2016-2017, we have had the challenge to try and upcycle a chick-fil-a soup container. I was up for the challenge after wanting to make a car first aid kit to take on the go with me. Here’s how to make a DIY car first aid kit.

First, you need to run to Chick-fil-a and try a cup of their savory tortilla soup. It’s delicious and creamy and really warms your tummy on a cold day. It’s got a little spice to it, but it’s so good! I enjoyed some soup for an early dinner one afternoon a few weeks ago.

After cleaning out the soup container let it dry while you gather some supplies. I tried to think about a few necessities that would be helpful if one of my kids got hurt or needed some quick first aid. We are on the go a lot with soccer activities and always love to play at parks. Scrapes and boo-boos are bound to happen so it’s nice to have something to have to help if/when that occurs. I got band-aids, antibiotic cream, mints, and hand wipes. The hand wipes came from Chick-fil-a! They are a perfect size and great for a quick hand wash when you’re on the go. I also put in some chapstick because you never know when you might need some!

Mints seem to always make my kids feel better. ┬áThe hand wipes came from Chick-fil-a! They are a perfect size and great for a quick hand wash when you’re on the go.

When you’re container is dry, put everything inside and snap the lid on tight. Now you’re all set! This is the perfect size container to leave in your car or even to put in your summer bag or purse! Since I’ve made this, I already needed it a few nights ago when I was away from home. I was so happy to have this!

What else would you put in a first aid kit?

    I would also add an ace bandage, gauze, medical tape and a sling. Those items are good for the deeper cut on way to get stitches
    Also broken bones ore sprains, hence ace bandage and or slinger or some thing similar. Benadryl you never know what bad allergy can arise. I have kids so those have always been helpful and a antiseptic spray. Between sport, carnivals , playground and rough housing the added items come in to play.
