How To Make Your Kid An Emergency Self Care Kit For School

We just had a situation where my daughter was on her way to driver’s ed for the day, and started her period. TMI? Maybe. But, it is what it is.

She had NOTHING with her. I had NOTHING in my purse that could help her. We didn’t have time to turn around and come home.

We didn’t have ibuprofen, and the cramps were coming so bad, she was crying. I felt pretty helpless — there’s nothing worse than when your kid hurts, and you can do nothing to help them.

I decided right then and there that we were going to make an Emergency Self Care Kit, and she was going to carry it with her at all times.

In fact, I was going to make a mini Emergency Necessity Kit, and keep it with me in case we were ever in this situation again.

How Do You Make An Emergency Necessity Kit?

Now you want to get something that your child can throw in their purse or backpack that doesn’t scream, “I’ve got an emergency situation going on.”

A small makeup bag will work perfect for your needs without embarrassing your kid.

Just a side note — you want to get your child involved, and make this bag something that they actually like. I learned a LONG time ago that I can’t pick things out for my daughter. I get it wrong 100 times out of 100.

Here are some things we added to our emergency necessity kit:


Basically, you want to make sure they have everything they might need if they get caught in a situation where they need a little something special.
