Yep, it’s time to head back to school already! And with it comes a long shopping list. But if you have boys, I’ve got 10 things you won’t want to forget on your list this year. Check it out.
So, I have a preschooler, kindergartner, a first-grader and a fourth-grader–all boys. And they all have specific items that they want when school starts. Plus, there are also other items I’ve found that are particularly helpful. Here are my top ten.
#10: Backpack lock
My son had a kid in his class who was stealing items out of his backpack. So, these backpack locks are super helpful. Plus, my boys think they are super cool.
Boys are dirty. But these Marvel hand sanitizers hook right on their backpacks or belt loops for easy access.
Soggy sandwiches are the worst. But this Bento box includes five containers and an ice pack that all fit in a durable sleeve with a handle. Plus there are like 20 different designs to choose from.
Nobody wants to be the stinky kid, but after running around at recess, boys start to stink. My son asked if he could bring deodorant to school so he doesn’t smell. Then I found Tom’s of Maine Wicked Cool Deodorant. It fits perfect in a backpack and your boys can put on a quick layer after recess.
Most teachers allow kids to keep water bottles at their desks. And apparently, it’s cool to put stickers on their water bottles too. Plus they stay hydrated!
#5: Tzowla Backpack
This isn’t just a backpack. It’s a super cool backpack because it’s water resistant, anti-theft capable and equipped with a USB charging port.
#4: Pokemon Cards
This continues to baffle me, but all of my boys love trading Pokemon cards, especially at school. So, get them a few, just to help them make friends at least.
If your kid rides his bike to school, this is a must. But sometimes helmets aren’t “cool”. That’s why I like these Avengers helmets. My boys actually like wearing these.
We live in a different world. That’s why these Smartwatch Phones are awesome. You can make two-way voice calls, voice chat and locate. This will give you a ton of peace of mind.
Every boy needs a quiet, comfortable desk to sit at while he does homework after school. It makes it easy to establish lasting habits.
