It’s hard to believe, but August is upon us and it’s time to start thinking about getting the kiddies ready for school…but the good news is, it can actually be fun with help from Etsy!
Starter Reusable Sandwich and Snack Bags, You Choose Your Set of Four by thehighfiberco. $25. How much do you spend on ziplocks each year? Think about it, one for a sandwich, a couple for snacks, and each day they end up in the trash. With these adorable reusable sandwich and snack bags you will not only be teaching your kids about eco-friendly choices, but you’ll be saving some money and looking smart (in every possible way) to boot.
Ray Gun Pencil Box by RedRangerRayGuns. $15. This is by far the COOLEST pencil box on the face of the planet. (Of course, which planet that is is up to you.) Your kid will have the safest pencils in the class in this baby-hand painted to look like metal (how cool is that?) and topped with a “declassified” diagram of one of the (once) super secret Red Rangers Atomic Disintegrater, this is a pencil box to rule all pencil boxes.
Nefarious Ideas Hand Stamped Spiral Journal by StudioZen. $6.50. Not every kid is a born student. In fact, some kids are born for greatness in…other areas. If your little (or not so little) nefarious mind needs a place to keep his or her plans for world domination in order (or, you know, a place to write down homework assignments), then may we humbly suggest this awesometown journal? Somehow we have a feeling that even the least studious student will enjoy scribbling down ideas in this…even if it’s just a topic for an English paper.
Japanese Style Lunch Bag-Garden Carrots and Green Plaid by littlesapling. $22. We’re not fixating on lunch or anything, but remember those adorable sandwich bags? Yeah. You should put them in this equally adorable lunch bag. It’s not only unique (and less likely to end up in the “lost and found” bin), but when it’s opened up it also serves as a place mat, making your kid the neatest, most well behaved, and adorable child in the lunch room. We can hear the lunch ladies “ooh-ing” and “aaaah-ing” now.
Travel Mug in Turquoise and Brown by Mypolkadotpottery. $24. Maybe your little one isn’t so little anymore and prefers a cup of joe instead of o.j. in the morning. Or maybe you’re just concerned about how you’re suddenly going to have to get up earlier in order to get the kids on the bus again. Either way, this travel mug is a back-to-school supply for somebody in your house. Hand painted with gorgeous colors, it will keep your beverage hot and your body going. Which, when you think about it, is a pretty important part of the school year.
