I can’t believe it’s almost that time of year again! The stores are full of school essentials and back to school sales are everywhere you turn!
That’s right parents, it’s Back to School fever!
After attending Blogger Bash NYC, I discovered some amazing MUST HAVE back to school products! I love finding new art supplies, desks, backpacks, snacks and more that can make the transition back to school smooth and easy.
Here are some back to school essentials you are sure to love:
Crayola Washable Products
Crayola has always made amazing school and art supplies for kids, and each year the products get even more innovative and exciting. At Blogger Bash, bloggers had the opportunity to play, draw and create with the washable markers. I loved how bright and colorful they were. Just like all Crayola art supplies, they were easy and fun to use.
The Ultra-Clean line is a new formula that allows the ink (or crayon marks) to wash off the skin, clothing and household products easily. Crayola also has washable glue, paint and crayons. All of these products are PERFECT for going back to school as well as preparing your own learning station or desk at home.
Aqua Ball is the perfect alternative to sugary drinks that are often packed in our kids’ lunch boxes. It is a healthy and natural way to keep them hydrated. Aqua Ball’s website states that this product was created for the sole purpose to empower moms. Aqua Ball wants to give moms a healthy choice to make for their kids.
Aqua Ball is good source of vitamins B6, B12, B3 and C, and it does not contain any high fructose corn syrup. It is sweetened using Stevia, an all natural sweetener. Aqua Ball comes in 4 flavors: orange, grape, fruit punch and berry. What makes Aqua Ball even cooler is that it comes in 5 Disney designs: Princesses, Monsters University, Planes, Marvel Avengers and Mickey & Friends. The fun round shape of the bottle also makes it easier for little hands to hold and less likely to be squeezed and spilled everywhere!
GoGo SqueeZ is a must have snack for preschoolers and kindergartners, and the perfect addition to any child’s lunch. It is apple sauce on the go that comes in a wide variety of flavors including organic and with veggies. Not only is it healthy, it is delicious too. GoGo SqueeZ comes in an easy to use pouch which eliminates the need for spoons and tons of napkins! It’s perfect for school lunches, road trips and quick snacks during a soccer game or cub scout/girl scout meeting. GoGo SqueeZ is 100% natural, gluten and wheat free, vegan friendly and free of common allergies. It has no added colors or flavors and NO high fructose corn syrup. You can’t get any healthier than that!!
Lands’ End Backpacks and Tote Bags
Lands’ End makes stylish and durable backpacks for kids of all ages. Their tote bags are also perfect for high schoolers and teenagers heading off to college. Each product can also be personalized making a great back to school gift or going away present. Lands’ End products are well-made making them durable enough to withstand a school year full of slamming them on the ground and squeezing them into lockers! Their backpacks come in a variety of colors sure to please any child!
Faber-Castell has an extensive line of premium children’s art supplies perfect for getting ready to go back to school. Faber-Castell’s pencils, crayons, markers, glue sticks and more are exactly what kids need to show their creativity and imagination when completing homework, projects and crafts. I especially enjoy using their beeswax crayons and gel sticks. They create vibrant colors and make drawing smooth and easy. Faber-Castell products are perfect for children interested in art as a career!
Boogie Boards were one of the most fascinating products I found at Blogger Bash NYC. Say goodbye to the days of handwritten notes or sticky notes left all around the house! Boogie Boards eWriters allow people to take notes, make lists, solve math equations and more without using a single piece of paper. It’s perfect for kids first learning to write to college students taking notes during a lecture!
Boogie Boards come in 5 different styles from the Jot 4.5, a pocket-sized eWriter for notes on-the-go, to the Sync 9.7, an eWriter that allows you to save and transfer your notes to your computer, tablet or smartphone wirelessly via bluetooth. Boogie Boards are a light-weight, eco-friendly way to take and keep notes in and out of school.
So get that Back to School checklist started and head on out and purchase some of these great products!
