I seem to always have the hardest time coming up with a Christmas gift idea for my mother-in-law, or parents. This year, I thought since the number of grandchildren keeps getting bigger, that I would give them a grandkid emergency kit, or a grandkid survival kit (I made tags for both because I couldn’t make up my mind).
There’s been many times that I’ve been a punk and not left enough diapers, or a grandchild spikes a fever and there’s no children’s Tylenol in site. I figured having a little emergency kit might be helpful for anything that might occasionally be missing from the diaper bag.
If your parents or mother-in-law have lots of grandchildren, you might consider adding a couple diapers in each size. A few other items you might add are:
At home with the kids? Instantly access any of these printable activity bundles to keep them learning!
wipes, thermometer, diaper rash cream, Tylenol, binky, bottle, sippy cup, baby toy or teether, blanket, etc.
You might even consider getting something like Amazon’s New Baby Welcome Box, as it will have a lot of the items you want to include. See my Post on Amazon Baby Registry to learn how to get it for free.
Band-Aids are one of those things that my kids always seem to need when they are at grandma’s house, so I made sure there was a box of those!
Grandkid Survival Kit – Free Printables
Because I’m indecisive, I made a label for both “grandkid survival kit” and “grandkid Emergency kit.” so take your pick!
