It's that time again! Back to school, back to reality. Here are some great products to help all your days be smooth ones.
Let’s talk litterless lunches:
Litterless lunches are the way to go, and this reusable bento-ware lunch system makes it a snap. I still wish all those lunches would just pack themselves, but short of that, having Laptop Lunches to work with is the next best thing.
Some schools are not doing the one big lunch and snack thing – instead they’re doing two nutrition breaks. This 2-sided insulated lunch bag helps you organize your child’s food. You can separate hot from cold, lunch from snacks and it’s designed to keep drinks standing upright to avoid spills.
These stainless steel lunch containers are easy to open, easy to clean, and easy to store. Plus, they’re lightweight and come in multiple sizes to hold snacks, sandwiches – and even salads! Founded by a cool mom, I have all the love for Dalcini!
Rather than sending juice to school, pack your child’s bag with a reusable water bottle. Eco Vessel makes great stainless steel water bottles in sizes perfect for kids. Plus, they have a lot of fun designs & colours and they’re leak-proof! Which means your little ones can enjoy water or smoothies on the go without you worrying about wet artwork or soggy lunches.
This adorable water bottle, with its heart pattern, is hard to resist. It's a great size for kids' backpacks and keeps cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot.
Jansport offers a huge variety of backpacks and bags to make back-to-school this year easier! One of my favourites to see in a backpack for my biggie-sized kids is a sleeve or pouch which allows my children a place to put their laptop.
The younger kids love the Jansport Superbreak Sticker Backpack. The sticker pattern is fun, bright and stands out from the crowd. Its doodle designs include small images of animals, fruit, french fries, ice cream and everything in between. Quirky and cute!
Do you go in for parent/teacher interviews and feel the shame and embarrassment when looking at your kid’s desk? Yeah, me too! This very cool product helps keep your kid and their desk organized!
Want to make sure all your lunch gear comes home? Make sure you use Mabel’s Labels for containers, shoes, backpacks and all other belongings to avoid the Lost and Found blues. Parents save money by not having to replace lost items and it’s never too early to start teaching children stewardship over their belongings.
Lunchbox Love is a fun way to connect with your children even when you’re not with them! All cards have positive messages and fun facts or jokes for kids to let them know you’re thinking of them while they’re at school.
Back to school season can be hectic for busy families. With the help of some great products, hopefully the transition back to reality will be a smooth one!
