Back to School Must-Buys
Y’all…who knew the 2020 school year would be how it is but we are making the most of it! Here are a few “essential” buys that I had to share about with y’all!
The BEST digital forehead Thermometer – this one is the easiest to use and a value too at under $50!
The MOST comfortable masks ever from Top Trenz – if you’re a Nashville local, you can get them at Brilliant Sky! I got the sprinkles mask and my youngest selected the gummy bears mask – so fun! For some reason, William wanted the plain blue and black…so, that’s what he got.
500 Paper Lunch Bags from Sam’s Club for under $6 … bothers me a little bit sustainability-wise butttt, gotta do what ya gotta do!
Bento Boxes from Amazon fit perfectly in the lunch bags with room to spare at the top. Don’t let their size fool you, you can pack ALOT of food in them.
LEGO backpack … for the ultimate lego fan (like my kids), this backpack is AWESOME and still has tons of room for all supplies (Chromebook!). If I were going back to school, I would totally get this holographic block back pack for myself!
Mask chain / necklaces, a must-have for keeping masks off the floor (ew!).
Fun silicon Marvel character backpack luggage tags – my boys selected the Avengers for theirs! There is an awesome variety of character options here too!
Thermos has the BEST insulated water bottles for kids, in my opinion and they come in a huge variety of licensed characters ( Minecraft , Paw Patrol , Batman , Hello Kitty , Trolls , Mario and more!).
For personalization, we have used these Orbit labels from Inchbug and they have lasted us 4+ years! Amazing, so easy to clean.
Our schools have asked us to pack little activity toy bags for recess time! This YoYo Ball is fantastic – kids can work on coordination while actually having the ball come back to them (vs the traditional yoyo just makes my kids mad, or they injure themselves, ha!). We got ours at our local Walmart but you can shop on Amazon too!.
I’d love to hear from you too! What products do you consider a back to school essential?
