How to Make a First Period Kit

Giving your daughter a “just in case” period kit for her locker or backpack is a proactive step towards ensuring she feels confident and ready to embrace this milestone.

In fact, it’s a good idea to have these conversations about menstruation sooner rather than later. The average age for a girl to start her period in the United States is 12, but it’s not unheard of for girls to begin menstruating as early as 8 or as late as 15.

What Is a Period Kit?

A period kit is a bundle of items that someone might need during their period. It typically includes items like pads or tampons, wet wipes, pain relievers, and other products to help manage period symptoms.

Why It’s Important to Be Prepared For Your Daughter’s First Period
