I know most schools are in session now, but I wanted to share some of our favorite things we did and used to prep for Kindergarten!
Over the summer, we tried out some products from Lakeshore Learning. I love being able to have fun while learning because learning really should be fun!
And of course, a Kindergartner is going to need a new bookbag! We snagged a great deal on one from Land’s End. Charlie is super excited about it and why wouldn’t he be? It’s a great backpack that’s going to last him a few years.
Eating lunch in the cafeteria is like a rite of passage, right? That means for kindergarten, we needed a lunch box and some of our favorite lunch-packing supplies.
Bentology sent us a great Bento Kit. I saw them at Blogger Bash this year and knew it would be great for Charlie. The Bento Kit includes an insulated bentoware lunch bag, outer container, five translucent inner bento box containers, 3 water-tight lids, and a stainless steel fork and spoon set! Seriously, all you need to do is add the food and a cool pack!
We’ve been loving our bento kit for some non-sandwich lunches.
And every lunch needs a drink! We’re excited to include some of our favorite Juicy Juice varieties in Charlie’s lunchbox this year. We’ve typically just grab fruit punch or apple, but the boys are loving the new combo flavors like Peach Apple and Strawberry Watermelon. The kids love the sweet taste and I love that there’s no added sugar! We were actually able to test out some fun drink recipes and make a few crafts at the Kidz Vuz Back to School Bash over the summer.
When you’re shopping for back-to-school clothes, don’t forget about new underwear! I know with little boys, just getting them to wear underwear is a plus! I love these fun days of week briefs from Fruit of the Loom for my little guys! With a variety of comfortable styles, sizes and designs, as well as three additional undies in each bonus pack, parents can easily and affordably make sure everyone in their family starts their first day with a good foundation.
Before your little one heads off to Kindergarten, read a few books to help them get comfortable with the idea. There are a lot of books about heading to school, but you’ll find plenty specifically for kindergarten!
We received some of the above items for inclusion, but our opinions are all our own.
