OK - what are the essentials we need in a kit, that will see us through a week camping with a 4.5 yr old and 17 monther?

Off the top of my head: plasters, painkillers, antihistamines, cream for bites. Some wipes for cleaning cuts and grazes.

A small pair of scissors can be useful too.

Oh, tweezers would be useful as well for removing splinters and beestings.

That's kind of about it in ours too! Sometimes there's plasters in there, depends if they've been used up or not!

I always carry plasters in my handbag, top tip from my Mum. Of course, DD2 managed to graze her legs so badly when we were on holiday that I didn't have a plaster big enough but generally they are so light it's worth always carrying some.
