Kids: bees, wasps and hornet

Guys,

Can anyone share any homemade remedies for bees, wasps and hornets stings. Specially for kids?
My dad always kept bees and the best we could use was cider vinegar, after removing the stinger.
What would you use on your children?

I would just wash the area with soap and cold water and then place an ice pack (wrapped in a cloth to protect the skin) on the sting/bite for about 10 min to reduce pain and swelling. I think that's enough if there are no signs of an allergic reaction.
