School essentials for the New Year
by CARRIE FELTON·
Is it that time of year already? With the excitement of silly season only just wrapping up, the idea of getting prepped and ready for a whole new year of school, kinder or day care can seem a little overwhelming … but it doesn’t have to be. With a little early organisation, the process can be a stress free and even, dare we say, fun experience!
That’s why we’ve put together a little list of the essential back to school supplies to turn a scary first day into an exciting milestone for your kids, especially if it’s the start of their early learning journey.
Back to School Supplies Checklist
A comfortable and sun-safe hat
When it comes to your little one’s adventure into early education, protecting their delicate skin and eyes from the sun’s harsh UV rays should be your first priority.
With our creatively designed kids bucket hats, you can ensure that your child has efficient sun protection as well a comfortable and breathable fit – the ideal school essential. With a nice and sturdy wide brim, our hats are made from a breathable, uncoated 100% cotton canvas and have an SPF rating of 50. They also feature an adjustable chin strap so your little acrobats can fly around the monkey bars without them coming off!
Back to school backpacks
Trying to find the perfect back to school backpack for your kids can be quite the task. There are a few things to consider when looking for the perfect bag for your littlies to take on their early learning adventures.
Firstly, you’ll have to accept that accidents happen! Children are just figuring out how to work their tiny fingers, so there are bound to be a couple spills and mishaps here and there. So, you’ll want a bag that’s easy to for your child to use, and for you to clean!
Secondly, you’re going to want to make sure that the bag you choose for your young one is easy to spot and identify. Having a unique design and an easy-to-read name tag is a must. Afterall, what could be more annoying than getting halfway home from picking the kids up and finding out it’s the wrong one!

Our durable and leak proof stainless steel drink bottles come with a lid and pop-up drinking spout, so you can rest easy knowing that germs and spillages are being kept to a minimum.
