If you’re like many of us preppers, you most likely have children. They may be really young and in diapers, toddlers, maybe teenagers or maybe they’re older and off to college. None the less they are our children.
If your children are teenagers or younger have you thought about how they’d react to bug out or survival situation?

Kid’s Wilderness Survival Tips
What’s the most important thing to remember if you get lost?
Get found! Don’t make it hard for people to find you.
Stay put, stay calm, stay together and stay seen!
Take a timeout: Take a deep breath; thinking and talking out loud can help you keep calm.
Sound Off – Sing, whistle or talk out loud – someone may hear you.
Think – Remember: think first, then act.
Observe – Yourself, your surroundings and your supplies
Plan –Based on your observations, make preparations for shelter and safety.
Use your Kid’s Wilderness Survival Pack:
Clean water – a necessity
Snacks – for energy
Whistle – it can be heard better than your voice – three whistles means I need help! Do it often so people can find you.
Sun screen and a hat – avoid painful sunburn
Garbage Bag – rain protection and shelter
Compass – learn how to use it. It’s fun!
Bandana – bright red or orange for signaling
Flashlight – to see at night and signal for help
Old CD – reflects the sun as a day signal
First Aid Kit with handwipes – just in case
