DIY Locker ‘Emergency’ Kit for Teens

Create your own locker emergency kit so you’re better prepared for whatever obstacle life throws your way!

Stay Fresh.

Whether you were in a morning rush, got a little to sweaty in gym class or sat next to a coughing, sneezing kid in homeroom, keeping bad breath, germs and offensive odors away at school is important. Keep these items packed so you never have to worry about being that smelly kid in study hall.

  • Toothbrush/toothpaste
  • Mints
  • Deodorant
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Tissues

Look Your Best.

These items will help ensure that you’re dressed and looking your best from homeroom to 8th period.

  • Hairspray or gel
  • Hair ties or bobby pins
  • Emergency makeup
  • Extra shirt or set of clothes
  • Stain stick pen for any spills

Be Prepared.

Here are a few more items to help you manage paper cuts, rain storms and hunger pains.

  • Band-Aids
  • Umbrella
  • Water
  • Snacks
  • $10 (at least) for emergency funds

Use these ideas and your own to create a personal locker kit today. Stash your kit somewhere safe in your locker or book bag. Stay away from adding any type of medication though, since most schools have strict rules against students medicating themselves. For real emergencies, always talk to your teacher or school nurse.
