I’ve shared that this month is National Preparedness Month.
Have you checked it out?
It’s okay. I know you’re busy.
We all are.
But take two minutes today and create ICE [In Case of Emergency] Cards for your kids.
ICE Cards are super easy to make, and the whole purpose of them is to keep your kids safe.
Thanks to Save the Children’s site, you can make these cards in two minutes. Two minutes.
We all have two minutes, especially if it means our kids will be walking around with important information at their fingertips.
Throw them in your child’s backpack, coat, or lunchbox.
Here’s the skinny. . .
Make FREE ICE [In Case of Emergency] Cards for Your Kids — What EVERY Child Must Have:
Head over to print your own!
And then take 5 minutes to ‘bling’ out your ICE Cards. Adding a little more pizzaz to the cards is totally not necessary–but it will make the cards more durable for your kids.
All you need to ‘bling’ your ICE Cards are:
- your printed ICE Cards from Save the Children site
- an index card (totally optional–just makes it more durable)
- a plastic sandwich bag (any kid will do)
- some washi tape (I like these plain colors, but you could go with patterned washi tape, too)
Check out a quickie video about how easy these are to make.
