One of our favorite websites for all things kid has a great assortment of essentials for back to school shopping. If you’re anything like us, it takes a few days in the routine to figure out exactly what is it that you need and what’s missing from your school gear. One Step Ahead has great basics for kids packing up and heading to school and also some items perfect for homework or homeschool.
Soft Insulated Lunch Pail ($16.95, with monogram $22.95) | My First Backpack ($24.95, with monogram $30.95) | KLIP IT Lunch Cube ($6.95)| Wrap-N-Mat Reusable Sandwich Wrap ($9.95) | Kids Nap Mat ($39.95, with personalization $45.95)
The My First Backpack was designed with daycare children in mind. That is, it is loaded with organization and features that give your child independence and space to manage a day’s worth of necessities. The bag zips open around the top, rather than from one side to the other, so it’s easy to look inside. The Backpack is loaded with pockets and even has a water bottle spot. The straps are padded and adjustable to provide a comfortable carry for your growing tot. Though called “My First” it’s a bit large for a young preschooler who’s only at school for a few hours. We do love the quality and thoughtful details for day care and elementary school aged kids.
The matching Soft Insulated Lunch Pail is perfect for REAL lunches. You aren’t limited to a flat rectangle shape with this pail making it perfect for containers of hot food and leftovers that just won’t fit in traditional lunch boxes.
The KLIP IT collection offers an assortment of containers perfect for packing school lunch or snacks. We love the Lunch Cube that folds up and clicks shut to safely contain a sandwich and two sides. This is perfect for younger kids who don’t need to carry a lunch box or even older kids or adults who don’t wish to carry an entire bag.
