Heading back-to-school can be a stressful time. Whether you’re a parent sending your child to kindergarten for the first time or you’re a new college student ready to move into the dorms. After a summer full of relaxing and adventures, it’s time to pack up those backpacks with your favorite go-to items and essentials to start the school year.
That long list of supplies needed to ensure a successful start to the school year can be overwhelming with questions like “Am I finding the best product?” “Will this last all year?” “Am I finding the best deal?”
Luckily, we’ve done some of the research for you and can tell you a few of our favorite products as we head back-to-school.
There are so many things that go into a great lunch box. One must consider food storage, cooling and heating, its durability and more. Design is also important! According to Good Housekeeping, the best overall lunch box is from PackIt. With its freezable gel liner, it stays below 40 degrees (farenheit) for five and a half hours, helping ensure your child’s food doesn’t perish before lunch time.
Writing is such an important skill for a child to develop and having the best pencil can definitely help in this area. As kids, we all had our favorite pencil. We remember trading stickers and quarters for the best pencils, or carving our names into our favorite pencils so friends wouldn’t claim them as their own. Our favorite? The Dixon Ticonderoga.
Back in the day, picking out a backpack used to be easy. We’d go for the ones with the wheels or the best design in our local store selection. Thanks to online shopping, the possibilities are now endless. There are so many backpacks on the market these days. How do you know which one is the best? Things to consider include comfort, durability, weight, design, price and more. NY Times did the work for you. They had a parent of three kids research the best designed backpacks for use during the school day – looking at space, organization, storage for school supplies, books, lunch, and a water bottle. Along with this, they looked at designs that would appeal to children 14 years and younger. NY Times best pick: L.L.Bean The Junior Original Book Pack. This is the perfect backpack for kids ages 4 to 7; The Original Book Pack, fitting kids ages 8 to 12. This is said to be among the highest-quality kids backpacks with its spacious design holding plenty of gear without kids getting overloaded.
A water bottle is an important way to stay hydrated throughout the school year. A durable, shatterproof design will ensure your child is staying healthy and hydrated. Glasstic Water Bottle has a customizable design that will allow your child to match their outfit with their water bottle. It’s also BPA and toxin free. Get your bottle today and see why everyone is raving about our glass, shatterproof water bottles!
