My oldest is growing up fast. She will be in 5th grade this year and so we have had “the talk” and learned about the body – so she understands what a Period is – and so I want her to be prepared when she goes back to school with a kit that will help her through the day should something untold happen. The bag she keeps her back to school (cycle)survival kit in is a homemade drawstring bag that is really easy to put together and really cute.
You can make a bag in about 30 minutes with two pieces of fabric and some yarn. Put them together with the pattern sides on the inside and sew around three sides leaving about 3 inches from the top on the long end. Fold this over and sew it width wise across and back leaving all openings – open – because this is where you will put the draw string. When it is done, fold it right side out. you can also add a pocket inside for some extra cash or whatever.
We filled our daughters back to school survival kit with the essentials, which included:
- U by Kotex CleanWear® by U
- Hand Sanitizer
- Hair ties
- EOS lip balm
- Nail polish
There are many other things that could be a part of this. A beginner kit to have on hand is great for any tween and she loves it. It has things she can use everyday or only when needed and the bag is big enough for her to add other things and she gets older. We found everything we needed at Walgreens and because of their promo (where you buy $15 of participating U by Kotex / EOS / BIC products and get 3,000 Balance Reward Points) I was also able to save on our favorite brands.
I would love your ideas about what to include in your tween’s cycle survival kit?
