Getting the whole family involved in preparedness is extremely important.
Kids understand a lot more than we give them credit for. Making preparedness fun and engaging is not only a great life experience, but it’s also a great bonding experience. Kids want to do what you do, so if they see you making your own bug out bag, then they want to make their own, too. And they should be as involved in preparedness as possible; especially when it comes to making their bag.
Of course, you’ll still add important items that they probably won’t care much about, such as clothes, emergency contact info, etc.
I wrote a whole blog post about how to make a bug out bag for kids over at Mountain House.
