Back to school season is a whirlwind of activity for most of us. To do lists that are a bit too long and all of the emotions wrapped up in getting ready to start a new year. It can be easy to miss something on the list. While you’re crossing off items on your child’s school supply list, don’t forget that not every school supply gets left in the classroom. To make sure the school starts off on the right foot, stocking your child’s backpack essentials is important too!
Backpack Essentials for Back to School
When you think of your child’s backpack, you might not be sure what they need to keep in there to be prepared. We have a few recommendations!
Notebook & Pencils
If your child is one who has to do homework while on the go. Keeping a notebook with extra paper and a few pencils in the backpack at all times means you’ll always be prepared. Whether at dance class or watching sports practice, your child will have the basic supplies they need!
Crayons & Markers
Depending on the age of your child, picking up an extra box of crayons or markers when you’re school supply shopping can be a lifesaver. Especially if you’re a family on the go. The notebook paper mentioned above can easily become an art canvas once homework is done!
Back to school season brings new germs into the house. Combine that with cold season that seems to sneak up so quickly and your child will be needing tissues! Keeping a small package of tissues in the backpack means they will always have some on hand. It’s an easy way to help them stay healthy as they head back to the classroom.
Keeping my family well in the fall is one of my priorities. So having hand sanitizer in every bag we have is an easy way to help reduce our risk of getting sick. We wash our hands a lot but when you’re on the go, it doesn’t always happen. So hand sanitizer is one of our backpack essentials.
So while we were at Target stocking up on Weston’s school supplies, we also picked up enough PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitizer for the whole family.
