The back-to-school must-haves for this challenging year.
Heading back to school this season is going to look a lot different than it did in years past. While many schools are still trying to finalize their plans for reopening, parents and kids are getting prepared under less than ideal circumstances. But don’t worry, we found everything you need to send your kids back to school this year, whether they will be attending in-person, learning virtually, or a doing a mix of both.
We know you and your kids have some experience at this whole remote learning thing by now, but there are more ways you can make the experience more pleasant. With some of the initial panic worn off, we can now focus on what worked and what didn’t. For instance, we love the idea of setting up a designated learning center for kids at home so they can stay focused and take ownership of their space. Equipping them with wireless headphones, workbooks, and a storage lap desk can be just what they need to conquer the school year.
If your kids are attending school in person, there will likely be a few new health guidelines and mandates in place. Kids will need face masks and hand sanitizer in addition to their regular school supplies like backpacks, pencil cases, and lunch boxes. But, no matter what the year has in store, we know kids can handle it. They are resilient, especially if we prepare in advance with everything they could possibly need.
