Being a teen can be challenging, especially when dealing with hygiene and body changes away from home. Before heading into the school year, make your daughter this Middle School Survival Kit for Girls.
Middle School Survival Kit for Girls
I beginning to see many of my friends begin the process of parenting a middle schooler. You see, my daughter was born in Florida where many middle schools began in 6th grade. We moved to the DC area when she was in 2nd grade where many of the middle schools begin in 7th grade. a big sigh of relief for this mama to an 11 year old.
Just because my oldest is not entering middle school, doesn’t mean I am not feeling the pre-teen vibes. My daughter is beginning to discover things like shaving your legs, what it means to have a period, how to have good hygiene and more. If your daughter has anxiety about being “away from mom” doing some of these new experiences, make her a middle school locker emergency kit.

Lilly Pulitzer Cosmetic Bag This cosmetic bag was too cute to pass up. What girl would not love this print? As a bonus, the adorable pouch comes with some goodies – 2 sticker sheets, 3 magnetic page keepers, and a Lilly Pulitzer ballpoint pen. Parts of this bag are see through, so perhaps leave the feminine products out for a bashful teen.
Mini Hair Brush Did anyone else have a hair brush like this growing up. It totally takes me back! This mini brush is designed to detangle. Perfect for after physical education.
Maybelline New York Baby Lips Lip Balm I have been using Baby Lips since they came out. Simply love the healing lip balm with a touch of color. I don’t feel like I am pushing my daughter to age too fast by giving her a tinted balm over lipstick.
Mini Lint Roll For the girl who wants to look picture perfect. Roll off that extra dog/cat hair with this mini lint roll. Chances are she will loving having it more than she will use it, but it’s a cute addition to her beauty kit.
Spiral Hair Ties The majority of the time, my daughter has half a dozen hair ties on her wrist, but for the times she forgot, have a backup supply of hair ties. These spiral hair ties are great for not getting creases in your hair. Plus they are adorable on your wrist (well better than some of the other hair ties I have seen!)
Flushable Wipes Cleansing Cloths Such an encouragement to remaining hygienic during the day. Wipe off sweaty make-up or perhaps unwanted body odor with these flushable cleansing wipes. I would replenish throughout the year as they are prone to drying out. I would also place this travel pouch in a Ziploc bag to retain the moisture.
Pacifica Island Vanilla Body Spray Middle school is a period of time of unwanted odors. The developing body goes through a lot! always smell your best with a pleasant body spray. Is anyone else a fan of having a familiar (always the same) sent?
Green Tea Mints No time to brush? Have spare mints. Do you know that mints can also stimulate the brain, giving your child an extra boost to an afternoon math class!
Hand Sanitizer Gel I mean germs! I became an anti-germ mama once I had more than two kids. I did not want one kid getting another sibling sick (and on down the line.) If a sink and soap are not near by, grab some hand sanitizer! Plus, these gels smell great!
Dove Powder Deodorant When I taught fifth grade, it was an age of hormones starting. The only thing i told my kids to put on every day was their clothes and deodorant! I told them this every day. Encourage taking care of your hygiene by having deodorant in your child’s survival kit!
Always Radiant Infinity Pads for Teens Having your monthly period can be hard. Outlast the average school day with these Always Infinity Pads for teens. They have an (up to) 8-hour absorbency. The teen size makes it the right size for a teen over your average adult.
