Item of the Week

Posted by imawheatwatcher on April 7, 2011

Every Thursday I will post an “Item of the Week” to assemble our Preparedness kits. Don’t worry if you have just started and we are half way through the list. This will continue on a loop so we will eventually get back to the beginning. Start when you can, do what you can, and we will become prepared.

Right now we are gathering items for: Youth and Adult Emergency Kits (72 hr kits)

This week get a small stuffed animal for security and stress relief. In a previous ward I had a friend mention that her son was attached to a certain blanket. It was made by her Grandmother and since she had already passed away they couldn’t get a duplicate. So instead of putting the blanket in the kit she pinned a note to her son’s bag reminding her to grab that blanket. If your son or daughter has a certain attachment to a stuffed animal or blanket I would strongly suggest to put a reminder note on that kid’s bag. It will be such a blessing when a disaster strikes.

    April had a blanket that she loved–when she was little and luckily, it was large enough that we cut a piece of it off for the 72 hr. kit and she never missed it. I figured that even if she knew it wasn’t the other big one–it would still help. The reminder note is much more practical. Good thinking.
