Are you ready for the big day? School bells will be ringing and buses will be at bay. As the first day of school comes getting closer and closer, make sure you’ve got everything prepped and ready for your child as he starts school.
Step 1: Selecting the Perfect Backpack
There are so many school bags out in the market but only a selected few are specially crafted for children. Other than having cute and spunky designs, specialized toddler and children brands craft the right straps, sizing and material to perfectly cater to a child’s physique with padded straps and limited weight capacity. Shop from reputable kids brands to make sure your child gets the backpack properly suited for him.
Step 2: Snack Time Essentials
Make sure your child enjoys a hearty meal by packing his lunchies with love everyday
– Lunchbag: An insulated lunch bag keeps your child’s meal hot or cold to make sure he enjoys it fresh when the lunch bell rings
– Snack Box: A snack box with a divider lets him gobble down a fun variety you can mix up for to surprise him with everyday
– Water bottle: Water bottles with flip straws are great for mess free drinks. They can even perfectly match his SkipHop Backpack.
Step 3: School Supplies
This lot may be tricky as the recommended supplies vary per school level but the most essential for all are: pencils/pens, notebooks, coloring materials, non-toxic adhesives and child-friendly shears.
Step 4: Comfort Toy
For some kids, starting school will be an adjustment either uncomfortable or exciting, make sure he has something dear to hold to help him with the anxiety he may face or something he can share around with new found friends.
Step 5: Just-in-case Checklist
– Spare Clothes
Pack light clothing just in case of any spill or art-related accident that might come your child’s way
– Pocket-sized Car Seat
Unplanned carpools are nothing to worry about if your child always has a handy car seat booster in his pack
Preparing for school need not be nerve-wrecking and stressful! Get ready ahead of time and just follow these steps and cross of these lists, and you will be guaranteed a hassle-free first day for you and your child.
