There are always plans and designs for survival kits and survival first aid kits for adults. Children on the other hand, have their own needs during a time when they have to bug out with their parents or if they are separated from their parents for any reason. For children 11 years and younger, we have the Guardian Children Survival Kits. With this small backpack, we have them covered with food/water, shelter and warmth, light and communication, first aid hygiene and much more. We also have the children Survival Pal and the children Survival Mini kits, which are even more compact but still can be useful as a bug out bag that they can keep on them for anytime.
Where does the term "bug out bag" come from? - Supposedly it comes from the "bail-out bag" emergency kit many military aviators carry. In the United States, the term referred to the Korean War practice of the U.S. Army designating alternate defensive positions, in the event that the units had to displace. They were directed to "bug out" when being overrun and there was an imminent threat. The concept passed into wide usage among other military and law enforcement personnel, though the "bail-out bag" is as likely to include emergency gear for going into an emergency situation as for escaping an emergency.
