After the earthquake and Japan there has been much talk of how the country and its people was prepared. Below is an image of a Grab-Bag or Go-Bag from Jpaan. But what do you put in yours? 

 

  • Do you have one for the family?
  • Do you have one for the car?
  • What do you take on holiday?

Let us know and post pics to this post!!

These are very good examples. Do you know if they are for the house/office. Are there any examples of what school children have with them? I also note that there are many commonalities in terms of water, whistles, radio etc. What about holiday or travel Go-Bags? This is aimed at everyone by the way!!! Oh and Marla, look out for a special prize coming your way soon to add to your profile! Keep them coming people!

To reinforce all of this we cordoned off a large area outside and sprinkled around the contents of 5 local go-bags, plus a lot of red-herring items (large toys, fresh fruit etc). Then we paired up 10 children into 5 teams and gave each an empty bag. They had 3 minutes to go in and agree on 10 items to put in their bags. Afterwards they came out and showed us what they had chosen, and discussed it.  Lots of fun discussion - like why did one team with no younger siblings include a set of baby clothes?

The kids had a lot of fun thinking about and coloring in what they plan to put in their go-bag.

We also had a bag from Japan - looking quite similar to above.
