Getting Ready to Go Back to School with My Three and Me

School Bags & Lunchboxes 


Choosing school bags and lunchboxes can be a nightmare for parents - there is so much choice around and there are some kids who are really picky - Callum being one of them. I hope the following products give you a few ideas of what is available this year.

School Bags For Younger Children

If you are looking for a school bag for your little ones then Getting Personal have some lovely designs available for £19.99. James will be starting Year 1 in 3 weeks and he now has to take a PE kit twice a week (something he never needed in reception last year). I love this adorable Monkey Backpack. It is super cute and can be personalised. The letters are big and clear and for little ones who are just finding their feet at school this is perfect as they can associate their name on their belongings. There is also a matching lunchbox available too.


School Bags For Older Children

If you have older children needing a school bag make sure you take a look on the Get The Label website. They have lots of different brands on offer and many have up 85% off their RRP. Although Callum is only 9 he has already expressed a desire to have "cool" things and no longer wants character bags at school (when did my little boy grow up?) This Converse bag is great for him as it isn't too big for him to carry but it has plenty of room inside for everything he needs.

 

Lunchboxes

Choosing lunch boxes is something My Three take very seriously. They have to have something that is "cool" and fun and nothing too babyish luckily the Internet Gift Store came to our rescue with the Retro Star Wars Lunch Bag and Bottle set. Priced at £11.69 for the pair I think this is a very reasonable price to pay. It is something that will last all year and something that Nathan loves. Our school has a no fizzy / fruit juice policy and the children have access to drinking water all day where they can fill up their bottle as and when they like so the bottle will come in handy for this. The lunchbox has a carry handle and is made from wipe clean materials ( which is a must after fruit and yogurt have been spilt around the insides).The Internet Gift Store has many other designs to choose from that are suitable for both boys and girls - many are from popular films / characters such as Frozen, The Minions, Mario and Luigi, Skylanders and many more.
