Back to School Essentials for Kids

Hi friends and happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! Ours was super low-key, as both of the kiddos were a tad under the weather. Let’s get this sickness stuff out of the way before school starts! Speaking of school, are you ready for your kids to go back? I have mixed feelings! While we are ready for the routine, I’m also really enjoying the lack of schedule and sleeping in and the slow and easy mornings. All that to say, Teddy and Reagan are so excited to get back to school and they can’t wait! They start in about a week! Today’s post is about all things back to school essentials! I am sharing lunch box ideas, kids back to school clothing, uniform ideas and more! Take a peek at all of our back to school essentials below!

Lunch Ideas

 

We love these LUNCHBOX containers! I really like to make lunches the night before…sometimes I even do them for a few days at a time. I can’t tell you how much less stressful my mornings are when I have their lunches made and ready to pop in backpacks! I don’t know why I waited so long to start doing this. We even did it when the kids were in camp this summer!

 

CONTAINERS

I love this BENTO BOX set! It’s so cute! My kids love the fun additions to their lunch boxes!!

I use SILICONE BAKING CUPS to section off the containers above! These are my favorite to use and again, the pops of color are so fun!

 

Capsule Uniform Wardrobe

 

If you missed FRIDAY’S POST, I shared my uniform capsule collection for boys and girls. Because my kids wear uniforms, this is always a hot topic for me. I really don’t love breaking the bank on these items. They are worn so much and get stained, dirty and worn out!

Backpacks

My kids both needed new backpacks this year and here are the ones they chose!

Teddy chose this one because it’s black and has the green trim (his favorite color). He loved the little game controller keychain that was attached to it, as well. This pack is pretty fab because it’s under $20 and comes with a pencil bag, water bottle and lunchbox!

BACKPACK

 

We loved this LEOPARD BACKPACK, but Reagan saw this BACKPACK the other day and loved it more! My niece was obsessed with the leopard one, so I am excited to pass this ONE along to her.
