The first kit I always put together before summer is a park and stroller kit. I keep it in the mudroom so it’s easy to grab and go for a quick evening walk or trip to the park. This is a simple concept and you probably have most of these items in your home already, but taking a couple minutes to organize the items in one place will be a time saver this summer.

Collect what you have at home or purchase items that you and your family might need for a walk or trip to the park or in an emergency – wipes, a hand towel to wipe off slides and swings, wound care, sunscreen, bandages and cotton swabs, and a tote to keep it all in.

Place your essential items in a bag and put it where it’ll be handy and easily accessible – get ready for summer fun!
