Back to School Essentials

The new school year is fast approaching (in fact, up here in Scotland it has already started) after what is surely the longest school break ever.  

While I know that most children are looking forward to getting back to school and seeing their friends, they will also have to adapt to a new normal, as we still figure life out in the midst of a pandemic. Things before that were taken for granted, like playing tag at lunch time and borrowing pencils and pens from friends, will be different with strict, and very important, rules in place for both the safety of students and staff.  

I've spoken before about my new found appreciation for teachers, after several months of homeschooling/banging my head off the wall. But I also realise how much our children have been through these last few months, how much they have had to adjust.  If it has been a lot for us adults to get our heads around, imagine how strange it has been for our children.  

So, as we parents, and our children, celebrate finally getting the school routine back, check out our selection of back to school essentials for kids and treat them to some personalised goodies!

Here's our checklist of everything you need! 

School Bags

We have a range of school bags/backpacks available, with a choice of different designs to choose from in either blue, pink or black. These bags are made from a hard-wearing synthetic material which is durable and easily wiped clean. The straps are adjustable and feature padding for comfort.  They also have lots of room inside for all school books and folders, as well as a handy front pocket. 

Pencil Cases/Pencil Tins

Personalised Army Camouflage Pencil Tin with Colouring Pencils for Back to School Personalised Pink Butterfly Fabric Pencil Case with Personalised Pencils, Colouring Pencils, Ruler and Sharpener. Perfect for back to school

Pencil cases are a must have for any school student.  Now, with current guidance suggesting that children should have their own pens and stationary and avoid sharing, these personalised pencils cases are the perfect way to ensure that your child knows what belongs to them.  These pencil cases come on their own, like the fabric ones pictured above, or, for an even better deal, some of them come with pencils included, like this army camo tin with a set of colouring pencils or this fabric pencil case that comes complete with personalised pencils and colouring pencils, along with a handy sharpener and ruler!

Lunch Bags

Likewise, school lunches and lunchtime is changing when schools return, with changes in how and where lunch is eaten, and more children than ever expected to bring in a packed lunch from home.  Our range of lunch bags are perfect for packed lunches, with plenty of room for sandwiches and snacks, and even a drink.  We have a range to choose from, including this pink healthy eating design with an on trend rainbow, or this black football design, with the image available in their favourite teams club colours! For the dinosaur mad little boy in your life, this cute blue "Be Roarsome" bag is perfect! Each bag comes with handy carry straps and secure zip, while the inside is insulated with a white spill proof layer to keep food fresher for longer!

Kit Bags

Our favourites are this cute tiger design blue bag and this pink unicorn rainbow design.  Brand new for this year we also have our new range of fully water proof swim bags, perfect for swimming lessons and available in pink or blue in a range of designs like this cute narwhal. 

Water Bottles

Personalised Pink Insulated Stainless Steel Double Wall Vacuum Drinks Bottle Personalised Clear Island Style Water Bottle with Pink font and cute Flamingo Design

Keeping hydrated is so important for all of us, but especially our children.  I don't know about all schools but I know that for my sons school all water fountains are turned off for the foreseeable, for obvious health and safety reasons, and therefore we as parents have been asked to make sure that they come to school with at least one full water bottle. 

We have a range of drinks bottles suitable for all ages, like this monster truck bottle and gold heart bottle, perfect for younger kids, or this stainless steel drinks bottle available in a range of colours.  We also love these Love Island inspired clear water bottles, like this pink flamingo bottle which is sure to make them the envy of all their friends!
