Back to School Supplies for Preschool and K

We’ve got news, mama: our little ones can’t stay our babies forever (we know, sad…), and soon they’ll be attending school. It’s inevitable. In fact, if you’re reading this, it’s probably because you’re going through this transition right now.

If your wee one is heading off to school this year, we know how stressful or overwhelming it can be. It’s completely new territory — and that goes for you too, mama! That’s why we created this back-to-school guide: to help you and your babe move to the head of the class. Equipping your Mini Me with all the back to school supplies will prepare him and make the transition a whole lot smoother.

The school will likely provide you with a checklist of things to bring (like notebooks, crayons and folders). But there are the back-to-school usual suspects that you’ll want to send your little one off to with.

So read on to find out all the back to school supplies that your little preschoolers and kindergarteners need to ace the first day (and the entire year) of school — from backpacks to lunch boxes and water bottles and more!
