One of the things that I feel that is important for every household to have is a first aid kit.
St John Ambulance have now teamed up with Boots to create a first aid kit for children.
Little explorers often tend to end up with bumps and grazes and this kit is ideal to deal with all those minor injuries.
St John Ambulance’s CEO, Sue Killen, said:
Only one in five parents feel confident that somebody in their household knows first aid. That’s why our first aid kit includes a comprehensive guide explaining how to treat a range of childhood injuries.
’We’ve joined forces with Boots to create a reassuring pack that takes the fear out of dealing with accidents. The light-weight and child-friendly kit is the perfect companion to action packed summer holidays.
The first aid kit contains:
- First aid booklet
- Sticker Sheet
- Tumble the Tiger Ice Pack
- Eyewash phial
- Cleansing wipes
- Small dressing
- Medium dressing
- Adhesive wound dressing
- Waterproof plasters
- Forehead thermometer
What I particularly like about the first aid kit is that it comes with bravery stickers which say ‘I’ve been brave today’. A lot of children love stickers and this may help calm them down slightly if they are particularly upset about hurting themselves.
The first aid booklet is useful in that it not only contains information about the age suitability of the products in the kit, but also provides advice on how to deal with injuries including animal bites, choking, dehydration and even shows you how to do CPR.
In addition to the products included, the kit has inner zipped pockets in which other items can be safely placed such as inhalers.
The first aid kit is also handy in that the size, and the fact that it is quite light weight, means you can easily slip it into your hand bag and take it out with you on your days out. The kit was actually designed to help when out and about and it certainly does that. Alternatively you can simply leave it in your car for car journeys.
SJA and Boots Pharmaceutical’s ‘Children’s first aid kit’ is retailed at £13.49 and available to purchase from Boots online and in-store.
Disclosure: I was sent a first aid kit for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I probably should replace ours as half the things are probably out of date now eek! This set looks fab x
We have a first aid kit in the boot of each of our cars and a small one for our backpack. Both the husbeast and I are first aid qualified

Such a good idea, I am terrible at remembering to update ours when things get used! Often plasters for no good reason haha!

It’s so important to have at least the basics to hand – we bought all of ours separately so we could get exactly what we wanted but this is a great option for people who don’t have the time or don’t know what’s needed. My husband is a trained first aider and does most of the first aid where he works x
This is a great first aid kit, and every house (and car) should have one. It’s wise to read through the booklet several times so that in a first aid situation you’re not panicking about what to do. I did a first aid course years ago, and it was very helpful.

We have a kit, but really it’s a collection of things and I can never find anything – must sort it out.
