Back to School

The title of this post says is all, it’s getting to be that time of year when kids prepare to go back to school. The good news for Mom/Dad & Grandma/Grandpa is there is still plenty of time to shop for all the great items your kids will need this fall. Today I’m highlighting some  must-have Back to School items that will help make the transition from summer days to school days easy…or at least a lot less painful!

(1) Every parent knows the hardest part of changing from easy going summer to busy fall is organizing the new activities and schedules of the family. This dry erase board makes it simple for the whole family to always know where everyone is. Just scroll down dentist appointments, soccer practice and birthday parties for proactive planning.

(2) Make your new school year resolution for healthy balanced meals each day. These lunch cubes make lunch packing super easy. There is a compartment for a sandwich and a separate compartment for fruits and veggies. The best part is no more wasted plastic baggies; these lunch cubes are dishwasher safe!

(3) Some kids may not exactly look forward to going back to school. However brand new cool school supplies undoubtedly help the transition. That’s why I’m also highlighting these adorable light-up notebooks. Why not make taking notes fun? Each notebook has a cute theme (sweet or peace) and includes a spiral-bound 160-page lined notepad.
