Simple Self Care Ideas Your Teen Girls Will Love…and use!
Teens are so busy with homework, friends and sports these days, that getting them to take time to have healthy Self Care themselves is hard. They want to…but teen girls can sometimes get their priorities a little mixed up.
When sports start up around our house, there is a lot of moaning and groaning due to achy muscles and tired bodies. Even though my girls are in fantastic shape and have actually been playing on a weekend basketball team, it’s nothing compared to the riggers that will begin in a couple of weeks!
The key to making anything fun for most girls, is that it must start with pretty and then…you can funnel down to functional and useful! HA! Well that’s with my teen girls anyway. Needless to say, they want to look pretty while they play sports…umm all the boys are watching in the stands you know! UGG
First you gotta get pretty…so I purchased a couple of cute but cheap makeup bags for only $1.97!
What’s in the Self Care Kit:
- Tampon or Pads ~ Which ever your daughter uses.
- Chapstick ~ Chapstick! With the cold days of fall and winter and the hard workouts…lips can become super dry and chapped. Girls don’t like chapped lips!
- Hand Lotion
- Ibuprofen ~ I only send a couple and my girls are old enough to know when and how to use safely.
- Instant Ice Pak
- Instant Heat Pak
- Hand sanitizer
- Alcohol wipes
- Antibacterial Ointment
- Hair ties ~ OOooh this is a MUST! Not having this in a Self Care Kit could send my girls into a frenzy! HA!
- Candy and gum ~ Another MUST have item
- A Small deodorant
- A Small Bottle of Perfume
You can gather each item separately or not. I bought a little First Aid Kit that had some of the things we needed. (but of course teen girls wouldn’t be caught dead with a first aid kit) BUT they WILL happily use this cute and pretty Self Care Kit!
So here’s the thing too…All the other girls on the team learn who the go to girls are for things they need for self care and first aid too! Of course there is always a trainer at sporting events and practices BUT the girls aren’t going to run to him/her for everything….they are just there for the BIG emergencies.
I want my girls to be equipped with essentials when I’m not around. It helps them to feel confident to handle high level physical activity along with learning how to self manage the little things in life.
