Let’s see what’s in the Think Outside “First Aid” box!
Everything was shipped in a small brown box with blue outdoors themed graphics.
A peek inside!
A full color, 20+ page booklet provided a TON of information relating to first aid including what you should keep in a first aid kit, when to call for help, how to assess different injuries/ailments, how to make an arm sling, first aid role play games, and more.
An additional information card listed all of the items in this month’s box and also included a fun Mad Libs style first aid silly story/postcard.
First Aid Kit
It would only make sense for a first aid themed box to include a well-stocked first aid kit. 😉 All of the supplies above came neatly tucked into a bright yellow water-resistant nylon pouch aptly labeled “First Aid Kit”.
- a package of Q-Tips
- safety pins
- a PBT bandage
- iodine prep pads
- a tourniquet
- surgical tape
- standard bandages
- sterile gauze pads
- triangular bandage
- alcohol pads
Information on how to use many of the items was also included in the booklet.
After the last year, we’re all VERY familiar with the benefits of hand sanitizer. This pocket-sized spray is citrus-scented and easily clips onto any bag/backpack so it’ll always be at the ready when needed.
The intro box that we previously received included a ring to collection a new set of resource cards every month. The cards are made of thin plastic to withstand the weather and not weigh down your pack. This month’s cards included tips for identifying various ailments/injuries and how to best treat them.
This 100% cotton bandana can be used for a LOT of things. Every corner is printed with images showing different ways you can utilize it in the areas of first aid, nutrition, weather, and survival. Turn it into a a tourniquet, trail marker, food wrap, scarf, splint, face mask, place mat, bear bag, and so much more!
Another versatile first aid must have, the ace bandage above is super stretchy and has a velcro closure making it ideal for securing splints or dressings. The booklet in this month’s box includes step-by-step instructions (with photos) on how to use it to properly bandage someone’s hand and to make an arm sling.
Tongue Depressor & Strip Thermometers
The final two first aid items were a tongue depressor that can be used to make a finger splint (instructions included in booklet), and reusable strip thermometers that stick to the forehead.
Also included were a March 2021 calendar with a list of fun things to do and a first aid “chatterbox” to assemble.
The “First Aid” themed Think Outside Box was packed with great essentials and information to keep you safe while enjoying the great outdoors. The information booklet alone will be a great resource to keep on hand for future adventuring. 🙂 — Thinking of signing up?
