Are you an organised shopper, or a last minute dash before ‘back to school’ kind of parent?
I’ve had to be organised on the essential uniform front, as we spend most of the summer away. So when I get home, my uniforms, PE kits and shoes will already be organised. Do you want to ask me about where I bought or how many? Ask away. It’s an ongoing debate for many parents, I know.
What else do children need to go back to school with? In Primary school, the honest answer is ‘not very much’. Schools usually provide the books and equipment they need. Notice I said ‘need’ though? I mean, there are essentials, and then there are nice things. We all like a few nice things, don’t we?!
So, I’ve raided Amazon for some suggestions of nice little stationery extras and fun lunch boxes and bags, to ease the little darlings back into school life.
At the moment, Amazon have a 4 for 3 offer on Essential School items in certain categories until 21st September 2016. You can See them all here
These are some of my personal favourites: (Prices correct as of 26th August 2016)
