The time has come, Summer holidays are coming to an end! Our long warm days spent enjoying BBQ’s, pool parties and late nights by the bonfire are being replaced with bedtimes and alarm clocks. Fall is coming and it’s inevitable. So instead of dreading the start of a new season, we wanted to help you kick it off right.

Back To School Must Haves

In less than a week our kids are heading back to school. I don’t know about you, but for me, as much as I love our Summer days together, the feeling of sending the kids off to school is a happy one. It’s no secret that Covid 19 has changed a lot for our society and schools are no exception. Here are some of the things that you will be wanting to add to your kids school list when you are finalizing your shopping.

  • Hand Sanitizer – Add some to the kids backpacks, lunch-bags and send some for their desks.
  • Cleaning Wipes – Excellent for them to keep in they backpacks and for their lunch-bags.
  • Masks – Whether you are choosing to have some fun prints, breathable materials or medical grade masks, make sure you are sending the kids with a few masks a day to allow them to switch them around if they become wet or soiled.
  • Anxiety Relief Item – Back to school can be a stressful time on any given day, now add the stress of pandemic life and it can be a very overwhelming experience for our kids. Send them off to school with a few items that can help them cope with anxious feelings.

As parents, I know personally there is a lot of worry that comes with the start of a new school year. The uncertainty of what we can expect and the lack of answers we receive can make it for a very difficult transition. I have been trying really hard to keep my worries out of little ears and shifting focus on expressing how wonderful the start of something new can be.

May our coffees be strong for that first day! And may the kiddos have the best year yet!
