Going back to school after a super summer vacation is no fun. But going back-to-school shopping? Now that's fun! What kid doesn't love picking out new backpacks, lunch boxes, notebooks, pens, crayons and more? We've rounded up some of our favorite back-to-school supplies, all available at Walmart. Shop them below.
As a child, did you pretend to live in a castle by arranging old blankets over the couch and chairs? There was something so fun about sitting underneath mom's old sheets. Now think how much more awesome it would be to actually have a bed that looks like a mini house! Enter the toddler house bed, also known as a Montessori floor bed.
These beds are exactly what they sound like: Picture a house-shaped frame above the mattress, complete with windows, a door and a kitchen (OK, just kidding about the kitchen). But now picture your little angel's precious head resting underneath one of these magical creations.
While this may seem like a cool, new way to sleep, the floor bed concept actually dates back to the early 20th century teaching philosophy called the Montessori Method, which focuses on placing everything a child needs to learn and explore at the child's level. So, by placing their bed on the floor, you give children independence and a chance to learn on their own terms.
Here, we've rounded up some of our favorite toddler house beds that are ready to take up residence in dreamland.

It's easy for parents to get spooked trying to choose the perfect Halloween costumes for their little ones. Between the overwhelming choices (princess or witch? superhero or villain?) to the barrage of opinions from their little boys and ghouls, deciding on the perfect costumes for kids can be, well, tricky. But with a little help from the Happiest Place on Earth, we've conjured up the best Disney Halloween costumes for kids this year. Whether it's her favorite Disney Junior character (you're singing the theme song now, aren't you?) or his beloved Pixar pal, here's some supercalifragilistic inspiration to make your little hero or magical creature's Halloween dreams come true.
Scratch "cuddly pets" off your Christmas toy list and snag one of these hilariously ferocious monsters instead. Grumblies are the fuming counterparts to Skyrocket Toys' sweet Pomsies. Each character has its own personality and design, plus over 40 fierce sounds and reactions. Tremor, Hydro, Bolt and Scorch will be your kid's best friend — until the fiery creature reaches full-on meltdown mode, of course. A Grumblies' short-fuse is something every parent and child knows a little bit about. These hot-headed and mischievous electronic plush toys are a major toy trend for kids this Christmas, so you might not want to wait for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. Buy one (or the whole group!) and get early savings from Amazon and Walmart now.
Unlike a Christmas birthday, which can get easily overlooked during the holiday commotion, a Halloween birthday party is a special unicorn — much like your little princess, superhero or monster. And just like those peanut butter cups you're giving out to trick-or-treaters, Halloween and birthdays are "two great things that go great together!" No need to rack your brain for some far-out theme — costumes and candy are a given. But you can still flex your creativity and choose unique decorations, invitations and much more to make your kiddo's Halloween birthday party a howling success. Keep scrolling for some frightfully fun inspiration.
Between the swollen ankles and that growing belly, pregnancy is no joke! Don't limit yourself to restricting pants and try these comfy maternity leggings instead.
There are times when we don't want glitter or ruffles or confusing designs splattered all over our kids' clothes. That's why we love Primary. Their clothes are basic and simple and can be worn over and over again. Another reason we love Primary? They're also making Halloween easy by inspiring parents to take matters into their own hands to create clever and adorable DIY Halloween costumes without having to pick up a needle and thread. Best of all, the costumes can have a second life—the hoodie your little guy wore for his dragon costume can be the same hoodie he wears to school the following week — minus the scales, of course. Scroll to see our favorite Primary DIY costume picks, along with details on how to make them and where to buy the essential pieces.
