Prepare an Emergency School Kit for Girls

Girls do not want to have a bad day in school. There are many things that can get your day off to a rough start, like bad body odor, periods or messy hair. This article will teach you to make a survival kit that will prevent these mistakes from ruining your day.


  1. Get a small cute bag that can hold everything needed for the kit. Another smaller bag is also good to hold your personal feminine items separately if you want.
  2. Add Lip balm/lip gloss: you never know when you will need it! Your lips might need a little bit of refreshing every 2 hours.
  3. Add Deodorant: If you don't want to stink after gym class or after you have ran down the hallway before the last bell, you might want to freshen up. A small, travel sized stick is suggested.
  4. Pack your makeup: Touch ups just in case some makeup on your face gets ruined or if a surprise pimple pops up on you, you can cover it up! Makeup such as mascara, eyeliner, blush, lip gloss, lipstick, eyeshadow and concealer is good for the kit. But makeup isn't important. Only pack it if there's enough space and you feel the need to wear it in school.
    • Bringing your makeup bag with your everyday makeup in is also good if you have a surprise sleepover after school or something. This will ensure you will always have it for the the morning.
  5. Add Lotion: Lotion is good when your hands begin to feel dry. You could even add it on your face if you don't wear makeup. Also it's good to make your legs moisturized for Games lessons.
  6. Add Hand Sanitizer: You just touched some gum that was stuck under the desk and the teacher won't let you go to the bathroom? So you pull out your hand sanitizer to have clean hands. Schools are also very unsanitary. If there isn't any soap in the bathroom this also can come in handy.
  7. Pack Gum or mints: If you're breath isn't feeling fresh, just pop a piece of gum, or a mint in your mouth (some schools may not allow gum, so just stick with mints if that is the case). Just remember to brush everyday.
  8. Include Pads/tampons: You might get your period unexpectedly. It is a good idea to keep a box of pads or tampons in your locker, or even a separate case for them. It might be a good idea to do this even if you haven't started - just in case! You could also help out a friend if they just started and haven't got any themselves!
  9. Pop in some Perfume/Bodyspray: You want to smell good in school. Clean is good enough for most people but add perfume if you feel the need! However, Body spray is less in your face and a better option for school.
  10. Include tissues: There will be a time that you will have to blow your nose and you might be embarrassed to get up and get one off the teacher's desk, so why not look for one in your purse?
  11. Include an Extra pencil/pen: you never know when you might lose one!
  12. Take your Cell phone: Your boyfriend calls, your mom, dad, sibling, need a map? If your phone has internet, news updates, it is practically a mini computer! Make sure its allowed, and be careful with it.
  13. Add Hair ties, hair pins: PE or you just want to put your hair up. If you don't like your hair one day you can just pull it up or if your hair falls out of it's style you could just pin it back up.
  14. Include Mini hairspray and dry shampoo: to keep your hair in place in an emergency. Your hair may feel greasy one day. With dry shampoo you can fix this straight away. It can also volume to your hair after P.E.
  15. Put in a Water Bottle: to keep your energy up and keep you hydrated throughout the day.
  16. Have a Small snack available in your emergency school kit: Don't feel like wasting your money? Buy a box of granola bars at the store and take one with you each day.
  17. Don't forget your wallet: your wallet may contain money, coupons, gift cards, discount cards, dinner cards for school you never know when you are going out with friends.
  18. Include a compact mirror: you will need it for any make up touch ups and its more convenient than constantly going to the bathroom they may not even have a mirror in your school.
  19. Include an extra pair of underwear your school emergency kit: You never know when something can soak!
  20. Add a Hairbrush: Never know when your hair can be tangled! A mini sized one would fit better in the bag.
  21. Think about what you really need in this list and place in your emergency school kit bag ready for school. Whenever you've been in an 'emergency' at school just think what would've helped you and add that to your kit!


  • If you are going to be putting in any personal items make sure to keep them in a safe compartment where nobody can see them.
  • If you are going to get everything on that list, it's probably better to buy everything travel size or mini size - it will save you a lot of room!
  • Only carry what is necessary.
  • For your pads and tampons carry it in a smaller bag but inside the bigger bag that you keep all the rest of your survival kit in.
  • Buy everything at the dollar store, sometimes there are things under a dollar!
  • Buy the things that you will need.
  • Carry everything in one small bag.
  • Label your survival kit bag, you don't want to get it confused with your pencil bag.


  • Don't buy big things or nothing will fit in your bag.
  • If you are planning to put the bag in your locker, then put it behind things or hide it within your stuff so that if you have a very touchy locker partner he or she won't find it.
  • Be careful about wearing perfume. Some people can get horrible migraines from just smelling perfume!
  • Try not to leave it alone, as somebody might steal something.
  • Some schools may not allow certain things, so don't put them in your bag (ex: chewing gum, cell phones, medicines, etc.).
