I can't believe the start of school is just around the corner and the stores have all their school supplies out already. We still have quite a few things left to do on our Summer Bucket Lists.
While I am not ready to commit to the boring purchases of the glue sticks and rulers yet, I have had fun searching Etsy for unique school accessories!
I have always wanted to be one of those fun moms that puts cute little notes in her kids' packed lunches. That might be easier if I actually packed them a lunch instead of handing them $2 everyday so somebody else can feed them. But if I do decide to get up early and pack my kids a healthy lunch I would definitely want to include these adorable note cards from Mary Had a Little Party . She has all kinds of cuteness in her shop.
These pencils from The carbon Crusader would be perfect for an older student or even yourself. The sarcasm one cracks me up. I am totally sarcastic way to often. My youngest son is starting to pick it up now and totally gets it. I am such a proud mama. Not into sarcasm? There are lots of kooky sayings. Some I don't get but that is probably because I am not as young and hip as I think I am.
I may not pack lunches that often but I do try to send the kids to school with healthy snacks everyday. I love the concept of reusable bags but most don't have designs that boys would like. Sack Savers has cool designs for boys, girls and moms. Plus they are nicely lined! A win win.
You know those blue or red nap mats that you can buy from Target or Walmart? Our school makes us buy those but they never said we couldn't also have a super stylish custom personalized nap mat cover with coordinating attached pillowcase and blanket. I am so getting this for my daughter next year from Princess N Sweet Peas! They even have designs for boys!
Can I just tell you how much I hate those plastic pencil cases with Princesses, Transformers, Cars...? I hate the pencil cases and the lunch boxes and the backpacks! I don't know why they irk me. Perhaps it's because they lack originality. Perhaps it's becauseDora is cool this week but next week my daughter will want to ditch Dora for Little Mermaid. And I don't feel like explaining why she can't have a new backpack 3 weeks into the school year. These original pencil cases from Sticky Genius, can allow your child to be the stylish trendsetter.
Have a great week and happy shopping!
