A go bag or bug out bag is a pre-packed satchel or bag that contains an assortment of supplies that you may need in the case of an emergency where you have to leave your home or residence.
Go Bags for kids are mostly to provide them with comfort and provisions for a short amount of time. Toiletries: I used a quart size bag to hold toothbrush, toothpaste, antibacterial wipes, kleenex, bandaids, and a few light sticks. Our major threat is a hurricane, and we keep our supplies stocked because we rarely evacuate, but I think bags for the kids are a good idea in the event that we are surprised by flooding or another event. They keep things dry, you can use them as rain gear, you can use them in water as a survival bag to stay warm, and you can collect drinking water in them.
107 Pieces of Survival Gear for Your Car, Home and To-Go BagOutlined below are three disaster kits--one for your home, one for your car and one in a backpack for quick evacuations.
Some of these (sweatshirts, shoes) are things that we use all the time, so I don’t want them tied up in a bag. My children have identical bags that they picked up for free at a carnival, so that is also a cost saving option.
I printed each form, folded it in quarters and placed it in a snack bag to protect it from water.


The go bag needs to be large enough to carry a good amount supplies, but small enough that you can transport without much effort. Either way, having this bag available could be the difference between success and failure in an emergency situation.  I would rather have it and not need it, than need it and not have it. Between what I keep in the truck and in the bag I’m good to go for a while regardless of weather or the lack of polite society.
Make Go Bags for your kids so that you are prepared for an evacuation in the case of an emergency. The point of these bags is to have them at the ready at a moment’s notice, so they need to be stored close to your path out the door.
If a child is even 4 years old they can assemble their own to go bag and the to go bag can be for everyday outings as well so that it is used all the time. I stopped at the dollar section of Target and got playing cards or puzzles to include in each bag.
After Lauren wrote about her kids’ emergency bags, I started buying some of the supplies to put together Go Bags for my kids. My list and bags are pretty extensive, to include spare ammo, Henry survival rifle, etc., but this small stuff can go into just about any kit.


The purpose of a Go Bag is to provide the bare necessities for a certain amount of time, typically 72-hours. The situation where my kids might need these bags would be an emergency where we must evacuate quickly. Due to the expense and weight of 3-day supplies, I decided to prepare a 24-kit for their Go Bags. I was able to find five in the same green and had a sixth similarly colored bag at home to use for my littlest one. But, as new items come in for birthdays and Christmas, I’ll stash the old ones in the Go Bags. My kids are counting the days until they can break into the bags as granola bars are something I rarely buy.
