YES…It’s that time of that year that all parents…or rather all MOM’S have been waiting for. Back-to-school baby!!! Ok… I’m sure you guys can feel my excitement through your phone or computer or whatever you’re reading this on. It’s because I am SO excited that my kids are finally going back to school, especially since my kids have been out of school for a year. This year, to drum up some excitement for school, I decided to take my kids to Target and Amazon to get them some brand new supplies! To make things super easy for you, I’ve created this list of back-to-school essentials that I PROMISE you’ll love. It has everything you could possibly think of that your kids will need for not only going back to school but conquering it too.
Without further ado, here’s my list of back-to-school essentials!
1.) Simple modern Backpacks– I love these backpacks from Pottery Barn because they have the cutest designs and characters my kids love. Plus Pottery Barn can also embroider their names on the backpacks which make each backpack super unique and practical.
2.) Bentgo Lunch Bags– I particularly love Bentgo lunch bags. They’re super sturdy and they’re always spill-proof. I can hold the lunch back on the side and nothing would ever leak or spill from it.
3.) Bentgo Lunch box & Ice pack – This lunch box is really well designed. I love how you can fit so much food and keep each thing separated in the little compartments. The best part is that it’s machine washable and easy to clean. The bonus is that it keeps the food at a good temperature when I put it in an ice pack. It’s a mixture of beauty and quality.
4.) Simple Modern Water bottles– I love this brand of water bottles. It keeps the water super cold and the designs are so adorable! I love using the 18 oz because when they go to school they don’t have to fill the water again.
5.) Ziroshi Food Jar Thermos – This thermos food jar is by far the best I’ve ever used. I’ve been using this ever since Sadie was 2 years old and it keeps her hot food super-hot up until lunchtime. This brand is known for its high quality and long-term durability.
6.) Breathable Masks– They were not an item when we went for our back-to-school essentials shopping. But in 2021, it is! And I guess masks are here to stay for a while. Finding good breathable masks for school is a must. Try to find something your kid likes and has attractive designs so they wear them happily!
7.) Brothers Label maker-This is very important because I literally love to label everything from backpacks to water bottles to lunch boxes. I’ve been using this for almost 5 years and I’ve never had to buy another. It’s the best!
8.) Babyorganic Hand sanitizer – This one is important to have because kids are always touching different surfaces at school. The great thing is, is that they’re used to carrying it around with them and using it. If you buy one, make sure it can easily attach to their backpacks or lunch bags.
9.) Badger Sunblock-Finding a good sunblock with natural mineral and organic ingredients is a must. This brand of sunblock is non-nano uncoated zinc oxide.
10.) Stationery– This is by far my favorite part of back-to-school essentials – new notebooks, pencils, pencil bags, crayons, etc.
11.) Infrared Thermometer – I purchased 2 thermometers, one for home and one in the car, just in case we forget to take their temperature before we send them off to school.
Hope everyone finds this post helpful for getting back-to-school essentials. Cheers to a healthy and successful school year!
