If I remember correctly, I have talked about the company Bookroo before. When Saylor was younger, I had gotten the Board Book Box which comes with 3 books. They were perfect for her when she was little, when she enjoyed looking at the bright colors and pictures. Now that she is older and starting to read a little bit, I wanted to get her some books geared towards older kids.
Each month Saylor gets a cute package of 2 wrapped books. And I mean literally, wrapped! She loves it so much because she feels like she is really getting something special. I love that their company takes the time to make things special for the kids. It also comes with a little card, telling a bit about the books of the month.
Growing up, back to school shopping was always the best, right? Well now that I have a daughter that is in (pre)school, I get to do some back to school shopping! Not that you really “need” anything at 3 years old, but it is still so fun to get new things!
Have you guys heard of pediped? Back when Saylor was first starting to walk, I was introduced to them. They are known for being the best flexible, soft-soled infant shoes to learn to walk in. They have a wide range of different styles, and are exceptional quality. We love our “Silver Shoes” as Saylor calls them, and I love that I don’t worry about her little feet being uncomfortable. Be sure to check out my Instagram where you can win your own pair!
For those of you with older kids, this is all routine and old news to you. But to others with their first kid, like myself, starting (pre)school in the fall, I thought it would be fun to put together a small list of some back to school essentials! Obviously in preschool they don’t need much of anything, but here are some fun idea’s of a few things they might need.
- A BACKPACK! Of course. I try to steer clear of character anything (sorry, Saylor!), but I love these animal SkipHop Backpacks from Target. One thing that Saylor’s teacher told me, and I wouldn’t have even thought about it, was to send them with a full sized backpack, or at least big enough for papers to fit in it. Littles can get frustrated with trying to cram everything in there.
2. NEW OUTFIT…duh! This is the best part. Gap has a ton of cute stuff right now, and they always have good sales.
