Before your little ones head back to the classroom, don’t forget to stock up on all the essential bits and pieces that’ll make their transition as easy as possible. Like a school bag with the right back support, or a lunchbox that keeps their food fresh, and of course, all the stationery they’ll need to get the most out of class.
Check out how Natalie at @thissweetlife_ gets her kids ready for the year ahead, with all her best advice below!
Carry everything in comfort
If your child walks a portion of their journey to school, then a good bag with back support can make all the difference. Plus, if your kids use a laptop then an insulated pocket is an absolute must to keep their tech safe and protected.
The perfect lunch needs the perfect lunchbox
With enough sections to separate your snacks and sandwiches, a bento-style lunchbox is a great way to give you more options for variety while keeping everything separate. It’s the perfect way to make sure their lunches stay fresh (and unsquished!).
Beat the heat with a cooler bag
Make sure their lunch stays fresh throughout the day with an inexpensive cooler bag. It’s an easy way to stop their sandwiches from going stale and to keep their fruit and veggies crisp all the way from your kitchen to the school yard.
Don’t forget to hydrate
While we can all agree it’s important for our children to stay hydrated throughout the day, not all water bottles are made the same. Make sure theirs is sturdy enough to stop leakage in their schoolbags – the last thing you want is to come home to soaked schoolbooks.
Everything they’ll need for the classroom
Make sure your children aren’t caught out in the classroom by making sure they have all the bits and pieces for a well-stocked pencil case. Rubbers, rulers, pens and pencils are all essentials – and don’t forget a calculator, too!
