Back to school is the perfect time to boost your pre-schooler’s sense of independence and help them narrow down their selections to make a winning pick. When it comes to the products your youngster will be using every day, remember that function is just as important as fun. Look for well-constructed products that can withstand carpools, classroom floors and messy field trips. Insulated, waterproof and easy-to-wipe fabrics will also make school send-offs and cleanups a breeze.
Let your child's personality shine through with fun and colourful school supplies while still keeping comfort and practicality in mind. Choose a backpack that’s small enough for your child to carry, but large enough to fit a lunchbox, notebooks and a reusable water bottle your child can use to stay hydrated and healthy all day long. Look for book bags with a sturdy construction, padded straps and extra compartments.
Once you’ve checked cool notebooks, backpacks and lunchtime supplies off your list, don’t forget that technology reigns supreme for teens. Thankfully, there are countless tech accessories to choose from, in a variety of styles, that will let your teens express themselves while keeping connected and organized.
Whatever their age, children will run out school supplies during the school year, so be sure to stock up on extra supplies. Even if your child doesn’t use the backup products this year, you can rest assured knowing you’ll have a head start on next year’s back-to-school list!
