We're throwing a Twitter party with the British Red Cross - and we've got a £250 voucher to give away to one lucky partier for a shop of their choice.

At the BRC, they know just how important it is to be prepared where little'uns are involved, from making sure your handbag's always stocked with wet wipes and plasters to knowing what to do if your tot takes a tumble - hence their handy new Baby and Child First Aid app.

Youngsters are always getting into scrapes, and while many a grazed knee has been healed with a kiss from Mummy, sometimes it pays off to have a few more first aid tricks up your sleeve. 

That's why we're asking you to share your parenting first aid stories and tips. Perhaps you saved the day after a playground fall, or knew *just* what to do when your DC managed to swallow something they shouldn't have. We all know that accidents happen - but we also know you've got some stellar ways of dealing with them, and with the new Red Cross app you can be even more prepared.

Join @MumsnetBloggers and @BritishRedCross on Wednesday 2 September 1-2pm and let us know how you've got first aid #RappedUp - share your first aid tales and tricks, and don't forget to use the hashtag. 

BRC's free app, where you can learn simple first aid skills to keep your children safe, can be downloaded here - and do check out the video below for a quick taster.
