So far, these kits are a big hit with the girls, and they enjoy helping me find things to add to them, as well as watching the boxes slowly grow...

I plan on adding more things to these boxes as I find things on clearances, etc. The most expensive thing in here was the body wash for $4. My total expense on each box at this point is about 16 bucks.
The goal of each box is to help them celebrate this transition, and to give them some tools to help make it easier on them, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I also plan on adding Yogi brand Moon Cycle tea bags, and a few of the self heating disposable muscle ache pads (they work wonders for cramping).
The other thing I plan on adding ASAP to these boxes is a personal bible for each girl, with their full name done in the gold foil lettering on the front cover. My husband and I each have one from when we were younger, and figure this would be a good time to present each of our daughters with one they could call their own.
