Prepare for Play! How to Pack a Playground Survival Kit

Have you ever gotten to the park, only to realize your kids are the only ones without sand toys?  Or had  an impromptu playground visit scuttled by wet slides?  Or your kid scrapes their knee and you have to go home early because you don’t have any bandages or first aid ointment?

I know I can answer yes to all of the above.

That is why I decided to pack a playground survival kit and stow it in the trunk.  Now my family is always prepared for a playground adventure!  Here at Kids Activities Blog, we’ve partnered with  BAND-AID ®  Brand and NEOSPORIN ®  Brand  to teach you how to make your own playground survival kit.
