How to Create a Middle School Locker Kit

A middle school locker kit is a great addition for back to school essentials making it easier to have what tweens need at their fingertips everyday.

Lockers are just one of the new and exciting changes that happen in middle school. Not only do kids get the opportunity to have lockers, often for the first time, they can actually lock their stuff up.

Hopefully, this cuts down on items that always seem to disappear.  It may not help if you’re kid is forgetful, but it sure helps when there are kids who like to take stuff.  Which is unfortunate.

 

 

Maybe they even get two lockers, one for academic supplies and another for gym class.

 

Either way one of my favorite ideas is for my tweens to have a middle school locker kit.  A kit filled with might needers and probably will need supplies.

 

 

Appearance is becoming a very big deal at this age.  They actually care about the way the look, feel and smell and so does everyone else.

While the way someone looks naturally should be celebrated, not made fun of, puberty has a way of intervening in ways that can make for embarrassing situations.

When it’s something they can control, a little help goes a long way.

 

Here’s a list of ideas that you could include in your tween (or teen) essentials locker kit for middle school:

Many of these items can be found in the school office, from a teacher or the nurse.  However, when in a rush it’s much easier to just grab and go.

Since many schools have rules about medicines, check with school officials or your school handbook before adding cough drops and pain relievers in your tween’s kit.

 

 

Of course, you need a fabulous container to hold all the supplies…I love this one.

But you may want to check the dimensions of your tween’s locker first.  It would be disappointing to make a fabulous kit and get to middle school to find out it’s too big.

 

It’s crazy how skinny the lockers are these days.  I don’t know how you’d fit all your books and binders into it along with winter boots and coat.  Never mind all those locker decorations they have these days.

 

Back in the day, we had tons of room for a mirror and Rob Lowe cutouts from Tiger Beat. 🤣
