  • 2 sterile, 3-by-3-inch gauze pads
  • A small roll of latex-free adhesive tape
  • A 3-by-6-inch piece of moleskin
  • A small bar of soap or small bottle of alcohol-based hand-sanitizing gel
  • A small tube of triple antibiotic ointment* (optional)
  • A small tube of hydrocortisone cream* (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Disposable latex-free gloves
  • CPR breathing barrier
  • Pencil and paper or small notebook

* Some people are allergic to antibiotics or hydrocortisone creams. Be sure to ask permission before applying either of these ointments for first-aid.
