Summer has flown by way too quickly and, if you can believe it, it’s time to get the kids ready to go Back to School! We want to help you get ready so we’ve picked some of our favorite back-to-school gear for kids. Just so you know, there are affiliate links in this post, which means that if you buy something on our list, we’ll get a little bit of money. Happy Shopping!
Target has some super cute backpacks right now including this pineapple backpack by Trans by Jansport. This one is spacious and perfect for older kids.
I don’t know what my boys do to their lunchboxes, but they have gone through so many over the years. The one that has lasted the longest was also the least expensive. This insulated cooler lunch bag from Target is $4.99. It’s not huge, but you can fit a sandwich, snack, fruit and an ice pack.
This little stamp is so simple yet so smart. It’s a stamp for your kids’ clothes so when your child leaves their jacket at school, you can easily find it. The stamp doesn’t bleed, according to Mabel’s Labels and lasts 50 washes.
These are some of the supplies that teachers have asked for in the past. Glue sticks, pencils, Lysol wipes and notebooks are good to buy in bulk because, along with tissue, teachers seem to always need them.
Every girl (and adult woman) needs a denim jacket. It goes with everything and won’t break the bank. This Lucky Brand denim jacket on Amazon is sweet and tough and a wardrobe staple.
This Vineyard Vines shift dress is sweet and easy for those warm days at the beginning of the school year.
I love these Lucky & Me Jada Girls Bike Shorts that girls can wear under their dresses, skirts and uniforms.
If your kids are like mine, they have a couple of things they wear every day like these Nike shorts. One wears only black, navy blue and gray and the other one wears bright, bold colors like these.
I asked my most fashionable mom friend what shoes the kids are wearing and she said plaid Vans are all the rage right now. These high-tops are adorable!
And if you have a unicorn-loving child, these Vans are perfect!
