Back to School – School Supplies Round-up

I was provided some samples of the following and others are included because I liked the products and companies.

 

Cool Back to School Supplies MommyBKnowsBestWhether your child is about to start school after the Labor Day holiday or has already started, here are a few cool school supplies that I found that are not essential to have on the first day and may even be on discount after school starts {wink, wink}.

Because Miss A’s school provides a great shopping list for school supplies for the school year we didn’t have to buy many items that weren’t on the list. Of course as a curious mom, I’m always scouring the web for really cool school products, if not for Miss A then for kiddos we know. In my search I found some really fun, helpful items that I wanted to share with you. Take a look, and be sure to share with friends!!

1. Every child needs a backpack right? These cool, non-character backpacks are great for school. The owl backpack from Skip Hop ($20) is the perfect size for preschoolers and Kindergartners and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Hard Shell Neoprene 16″ Backpack is soft and comes with a really cool mask {different colored masks available}.

2. Going Old School with Mead Trapper Keeper 3 Ring Binder ($15.99) Not only is this truly a nostalgia piece {I definitely considered buying myself one when we were school shopping}, but they’re truly a nostalgia piece. Seriously though, I love Mead products, and why mess with a classic right? These binders come in several colors and they’ve also updated the look if your child doesn’t want to go “old school”.

3. Every time I pack Miss A’s lunch I put a note in with it, whether it’s silly or sentimental, this is just something I wanted to do to make her school day special. There are a million lunch notes out there, but I love Oriental Trading Company, and found this Pack of 60 Lunch Box Notes – Colorful Inspirational and Motivational Cards for Kids, 2 x 3.5 Inches , they’re colorful, fun, and they’re really affordable too!

4. PersonalCreations.com is another one of my favorite websites to buy from. As I was looking for fun lunchboxes, I stumbled on these adorable personalized lunch boxes ($19.99) (that come in several styles for both boys and girls). Unlike some other personalized lunch boxes, I like that these are fabric aka washable, and that you can read the name on the product {so many are too patterned where the name is not legible}.

5. Want to be the cool parent? Featured in the image above are keycals from kidecal.com, not only does kidecal.com carry these cool decal stickers {designed to customize your keyboard}, but they have labels for your children’s belongings, mustache stickers, allergy alerts. Really this is a great place to shop for dishwasher safe, washing machine safe, no-residue-left-behind, decal/stickers. Prices vary depending on the product, but beware, if you go to the website you may just find something for yourself too…

6. If you want to “spice” up your child’s lunch, make it squeezable {phew that really is a word}. I love BooginHead Squeez’Ems Reusable Food Pouches (2 Pouches) because you can make your own creations and pack them for your kiddo, or send them to school filled with your child’s favorite applesauce, yogurt, smoothie. They’re really easy to open and freezer, microwave and top rack dishwasher safe.

 

What cool back-to-school item did you purchase or do you have your “eyes on”?

 

I received review samples from Squeez’Ems and Kidecals for this review. All opinions and thoughts in this post are my own honest words. Your opinions may vary, and I would love to hear them if you want to leave a comment. Please note as with any item for sale online prices are subject to change {since I have no control over that}.
