Back to School Prep

I love the excitement of back to school almost, if not more, than my girls do! There is just something about buying new school supplies and getting organized for the school year that puts a pep in my step. I know that in a few short weeks I will be drowning in to-dos, lunches, and dragging kids out of bed, but for now I can’t help but think we will live in a permanent state of back to school efficiency. I’ve got the family calendar ready, the backpacks purchased and am waiting on go for our school supply lists.

Speaking of supply lists, scroll to the bottom of this post to randomly help a few teachers out if you are able! I would be so grateful if we could help bless some of these teachers as they start a new year!

Purple Tie-Dye Backpack // Lunchbox // Pencil Case
Pastel Tie-Dye Backpack // Lunchbox // Pencil Case

If you are looking for bookbags, you need to check out Pottery Barn Teen. I don’t know why I assumed that the only backpacks for kids were at Pottery Barn Kids, but the Teen selection is so great!! My friend mentioned it’s where she got her girls from and how there were so many more to chose from and she was so right! Scottie was especially excited that her lunchbox has a strap. Apparently crossbody lunchboxes are all the rage these days.

First Day Teacher Gift Ideas

If you want to take your teacher a little something on the first day of school here are a few cute ideas. I usually sent a card and an Amazon gift card for supplies she might need but I think it would be fun to let the girls pick some things out and put together a little gift basket!

School Supplies Round-Up

I LOVE going school supply shopping with the girls. We usually make a trip and then just order everything we couldn’t find. It would be easy to order everything at once but I still love watching them get excited as they shop! Here are a few of the backpacks that we loved and a few supplies your kiddos might need.

Teacher Amazon Wish Lists

A few weeks ago we asked for the teacher lists of first-year or Title I teachers that could use some help finishing their teacher lists. We had so many and included all we could! I thought it would be fun to do a little giveaway with the lists so if you buy something leave us a comment on this post and we will send out some random Beauty Boxes when we send out June winners boxes mailed! (If your comment doesn’t go through right away just wait because we have to approve first-time comments).
