It’s that time of year again! Gearing up for school and finding just the right backpack and all the coolest stuff to fill my pencil box was such a fun time for me growing up. A brand new note book full of blank pages always felt like a fresh start, and brought to mind a whole school year’s worth of possibilities. This year we’re sharing our favourite finds to help bring FUN back to school!
WAFF makes homework FUN! With a soft, silicone, waffle-like, cover, each WAFF notebook is designed to be personalized with WAFF cubes. Express your creativity by writing a message, practice spelling in a unique way, create a colourful design – there are so many cool ways to customize your WAFF notebook. Available in a variety of colours and sizes, it’s easy to find the perfect WAFF notebook to bring to school in your backpack or to stick in your purse on the way to work.
Every day of learning is fuelled by a healthy lunch! Ice packs and lunch bags that keep food fresh, bento-inspired containers, water bottles and more, we’ve got the eco-friendly, reusable lunch gear you’re looking for. Gather everything you need for snack and meal time at school (except the food, lol!), and it's all available with matching accessories. For those (like me) who are looking for fresh, new and EASY lunch ideas, check out “Beating the Lunch Box Blues” by J.M. Hirsch. It’s full of quick and yummy tips and meals that are appropriate for students of any age as well as us “grown-ups”.
Carry fun to school with these durable, stylish, patterned packs! Beautiful Bixbee backpacks and duffles, and wonderfully illustrated Crocodile Creek bags will have students packed and ready, from kindergarten to high school and beyond. Go from school, to practice and home again and get them there with everything they need in the perfect bag. To personalize their pack, check out some cute accessories like Ty Beanie Boo Clips or LEGO® bag tags!
Get to school the FUN and active way with a scooter! Whether they're a beginner or a skate park pro, these scooters will have them moving. From Swiss-designed Kick Scooters to ultra-cool Razors and extreme rides from the MADD Gear Pro collection, they'll be ready to roll.
I love hands-on learning toys that encourage learning through fun, like experiment kits or interactive globes. These are great “homework helpers” that explain Science and Geography concepts in exciting ways and also make great play date and rainy day activities! Young Einsteins can discover all of the wonders of the world: microscopic wonders, “far away” places, even how electricity works!
