Did summer fly by where you are? Have you started back to school shopping yet? With a rising Kindergartener, we are in full back to school mode. We made our sensory bin, are acting out school scenes during our play, and of course…..are shopping. I mean I’m using this as an excuse to get back to school drop off line athletic wear for myself 😉 Those mornings are going to be rough…the best I can do is make sure I’m not in my pjs and that I have a dose of deodorant on…just sayin’…
I recently had the opportunity to talk to some really awesome brands, and see some of the best new products for kids and families at Blogger Bash, an awesome blog conference in NYC with some pretty major swag and samples. So, not only did I see and touch a lot of these products on this list,
my kids I’ve actually been using them myself, and they have definitely made the school shopping cut.
So here you go! Your ULTIMATE Back-to-School Shopping ‘Must Haves’!!
These Bixbee Animal Packs are SUPER adorable, from sharks to butterflies, your little one will be able to strut their style on the first say of school.
For your older kids, the Speck Kargo Backpack is functional and trendy.
One of the most important times of the day at school is lunch! Everyone wants a cute lunchbox, and the schools want reusable items to cut down on waste. Add these to your list, you WON’T be disappointed.
Don’t forget to hydrate! The CamelBak Kids Water Bottle has SO many prints to choose from, your kiddo will be more than satisfied with their selection.
Have kids taking their technology to school? Kanex will keep the battery charged with the GoPower Portable Battery for MacBook, iPhone, Android & more so that you always have enough juice to make it through the day.
If it’s the iPad they are taking to school, or riding the bus with, you want that baby protected. Luckily, Speck‘s iGuy Freestanding Case will not only keep it well-protected, it will be oh so cute at the same time.
