How to build a period kit for your daughter

If you have a daughter who’s around 10 years old, it’s probably time to consider prepping for their first period with a DIY period kit.

While it might sound surprising, most kids begin menstruating between 10 and 15 years old, with the average age being 12 ½. Keep in mind that every child is unique, and the onset may happen earlier or later than the average.

Being ready is key! The first period can happen unexpectedly, possibly even while they’re at school. That’s why having their personalised period pack, is an essential! Here are some ideas of what to stock it with.
