Back to School

It’s that time of year again! Even though every August reminds me of how quickly my children are growing up, we love getting them ready to head back to school. And, this year, we’re shopping for all of the necessities so they’ll have a fun and safe school year.

There’s cute floral backpacks for the girls and camo backpacks for the boys to start off the list. Prep their lunch with this bento-style lunch pack which has a removable divider and pair it with a freezable lunch box to keep the kids’ food cool and fresh. If they are in need of a laptop sleeve, this fillmore vegan leather laptop sleeve can fit up to a 15-inch laptop and you can even personalize it with their monogram.

When it comes to school supplies, finding the stuff that’s the most fun is the best! Pencils are a must and they’re even better when they’re decorated with inspirational quotes to keep the kids encouraged while doing school work. This set of Yoobi multicolored mini highlighters will help them take colorful notes, and they can hold all of their school supplies in this fun monster pencil case.

For those “first day of school” outfits, dress the girls up in a cute navy uniform dress or polo rugby striped dress with these Veja sneakers. Likewise, I love this blue striped polo t-shirt or striped half-zip popover sweatshirt with a nice pair of chino shorts for the boys. And add a cool pair of Chuck Taylors or Adidas superstar shoes to polish off the outfit.

Lastly, get a jumpstart on keeping the kids healthy and safe this school season with Fairy Tales Conditioning Spray to help prevent lice and  Mary Ruth’s Immunity Gummies (which aren’t only great for kids, but perfect for adults, too!) for extra immune support.

My family is definitely happy to have some aspect of normalcy this fall. We especially want to make sure the kids are fully prepared and ready to take on the school year with the right supplies, clothing, and tools to keep them healthy.

And, maybe you can even find time to take care of your home and yourself while the kids are away each day. Take a look at my Toy Organization Favorites to get inspiration on all of the best ways to keep your kids’ play areas clean and read my post on Developing a Self Care Routine as a reminder to make sure you’re taking care of You, too.
