Back-to-school 2013 Stylish Gear

In Back to School, Kids by Christine Fox3 Comments

I don’t know about you but I’m sure ready to send the kids back-to-school. We’ve had a great summer, full of fun, but I’m one that craves the routine of the school year and I think the kids behave better with structure too. Therefore, I get really excited about back-to-school shopping.

Picking a backpack is the first thing because after that, everything falls into place. While my kids wear a uniform to school, a backpack is the one thing they get to have that really expresses their personality. This year it’s all about stripes, monsters, animals and animal prints when it comes to backpack styles.

Next up is lunch. Usually the lunch box matches the backpack but in our family, we love to mix it up and get something different. The bento box style lunch boxes are the ones my kids love because nothing smashes together making sandwiches soggy and the fruit gross. Don’t forget the extra water bottle either, because hydrating with H2O is key during the warm fall months.

For school supplies, it’s fun to get something unique like Lego and macaroon erasers, and a notebook that, may or may not, be used for doodling too. It’s so fun to get lost in all the new styles that they have now…makes me nostalgic for the good old days!

Do you like back-to-school shopping with your kids?
