Adventure Medical Kits Backyard Adventure Kit
The best kid-friendly med kit of 2021.
It’s never too early to teach kids the 10 essentials and encourage their self-sufficiency outdoors. Luckily, being prepared never looked so cute. These animal-themed medical kits attach to any gear loop on your child’s pack via an included carabiner and contain enough bandages and antibiotic ointment for small scrapes and cuts, as well as sanitizer gel packets—all in a simple zipper pouch that your tiniest wilderness first-responder will be able to open with ease. “My 7-year-old loves being prepared, and will jump to the ready at any sign of injury,” one parent says. “On a dayhike on Rabbit Mountain outside Lyons, Colorado, my son scraped his arm while scrambling up some rocks, and his sister leapt to the rescue. Giving them their own first aid kit isn’t just about Band-Aids. It made them realize that they could be independent and take action even when things go wrong.”
