Packing a backpack takes on a new spin when a girl nears her teen years. Today I’m sharing backpack essentials for teen girls. Whether your teen is packing her backpack for her first day at middle school, to go to youth group, or for an overnight sleepover, there are several essentials a teen girl shouldn’t be without.First grab a small cosmetic pouch or two to pack these essentials in. The essentials will be easier to find, and the pouches will keep potentially embarrassing contents away from prying eyes. A cosmetic pouch also makes switching from backpack, to tote bag, to purse quick and easy.

It’s always a good idea to have some cash on hand the unexpected. Ten dollars is a good amount to keep stashed in the essential pouch.
With the unpredictability of teen bodies, it’s smart to always have a few feminine products on hand.
Mints and/or gum
Fresh breath is a confidence booster!
Frequent hand washing can do a number on already dry skin. Scented lotion can double as a great way to freshen up on long days away from home.
Leave necessary prescription medication in original bottles. If your child gets headaches or cramps, consider a small travel bottle of pain killer too.
Hair tie or barrette
Keep a piece of paper with emergency contact info in the essentials pouch. In case of emergency, it’s easy to forget important phone numbers
