School is around the corner; the moms are excited while the kids are dreading the days of early bedtimes. I am excited, for school to start and because I get to shop! I have always loved back to school shopping, especially for deals. Also check out our Amazon List of Books for the First Day for little ones. (We have included affiliate links in this post).
eBags: Backpacks are a must for school and sleeping bags are supplies needed for girl scouts and sleepovers. A sturdy backpack is a must for kids, we know they are rough, the Fjallraven bags have been around forever and eBags sells them and others for kids, tweens and teens. We love the pink color and the material which is super easy to clean with a wipe.
Mabel’s Labels: After you bought all the supplies and clothing LABEL IT! I have been using Mabel’s Labels for 6 years, I still have bowls with original labels on it that have gone through the was hundreds of times. Also school uniforms, every kid has the same jacket, label your child’s.
French Toast Clothing: Uniforms, school clothes and gym attire French Toast has it. I have been so happy since finding this company for both kids. We now wear French Toast all year, and it never breaks the bank. Target.com also sells the brand’s uniform pieces.
Yoobi x i am OTHER: Yoobi supplies can be found at Target.com, in Target or yoobi.com, . The Yoobi collaboration with Pharrell Williams also gives an item to a classroom in need within the US. Buy 1 Give 1. How awesome is that? I am in love with the Document Organizer for myself. Keeps all my work papers organized and when I need to go somewhere I just grab that, my MacBook Air fits inside too.
Pharrell Williams described the purpose behind the collection, “Being OTHER is knowing that that which makes you different is what makes you special, and that when unique individuals come together, collectively there’s a lot of power in that. The goal of this Yoobi x i am OTHER collection is to inspire kids and give them the confidence to celebrate their uniqueness. We also want to inspire kids to take care of others and give back to their communities. When I think back to my time in school, I realize how important having the right tools were in my life which is why I relate to Yoobi’s mission. It is hard enough for a child in a compromised school and educational system to do well. We need to be able to provide them with the tools they need to succeed because education is everything.”
Nalgene: The lunchbox buddy is a lunchbox and bento box style in one. The lid doubles as a plate. and everything is washable when it gets dirty, and if your kids are like mine, that is often. The water bottles are great choices for the kids and moms, I love that there is measurements on them too.
Snack in a Box: A Dual chambered snack container for two snacks with pop up lids. Mix and match the kids snacks for school, its dishwasher safe and BPA/Phthalate Free. Snack in a Box is on amazon in four colors.
Easy Peasy Patches: Kids love to customize and be original, they also tend to get holes in their pants too. Easy Peasy Patches has a solution for either of those issues. For a mom like me, its bonus that they do not need ironing, just rub on, set in dryer and wear.
World’s Smallest Toys: These toys are small and adorable just like their original full size counter parts. Perfect to keep the kids entertained and feeling special while at school or on the bus. The Perplexus is our top pick for keep the kids busy on the bus, they will be concentrating on completing the ‘3D, labyrinth game in a sphere’.
