Make Your Own First Aid Kit
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     You can take care of most minor cuts, bites, and burns on your own. It will help if you have a first aid kit. You can buy one, or you can make one yourself. This will save you money.
 
2     First, you need a container. A small shoe box will do nicely. Next, find your local emergency numbers in the phone book. Copy them down on a piece of paper. Tape them to the inside of your first aid kit. If an injury is serious, you will need to call for help quickly.
 
3     Gather the supplies you need for basic first aid. To help with minor cuts and scrapes, you will need bandages. There are different types of bandages. You should have each type in your kit.
 
4     Small wounds will need adhesive bandages. You can buy these in many sizes at your local store. Larger wounds might need gauze pads or rolled bandage. You will also need adhesive tape to hold these in place.
 
5     It will also be helpful to have alcohol swabs. These are individually wrapped pieces of cotton or paper soaked in alcohol. You can buy these in a box at the store. These are good for cleaning minor cuts and stings.
