Back to School!
And like that, September is almost upon us and children parents are busy packing up book bags, polishing brand new shoes and checking that those school trousers bought new last week still fit!
Returning to school this year is going to feel a little different. Social distancing is a phrase we've had to get used to. Hand-washing regularly has become second nature and hand sanitiser and masks are being packed alongside lunch boxes and exercise books.
Once thing hasn't changed, the excitement of choosing brand new accessories and stationary for the start of term. As a child I used to get so excited at the prospect of stationery shopping and not much has changed if I'm honest!
I thought I'd share some of my favourite finds from small businesses that make excellent back to school purchases.
Make Lunchtime extra cute with Petit MushyP | etsy.com/mushyp
Much more eco concious than your average plastic box and available in a range of colours and designs these lunch bags can be carried just like your trational lunchbox by knotting the ears to create a grab handle. Alternitivly you can sling it over a shoulder using the full length of the ears as a strap, fastened with a button.
A hug from Clara and Macy | claraandmacy.com
For little ones starting school for the first time or those nervous about going back after the extended break, these pins give them that added bit of reassurence. They can be attached to uniforms and book bags or tucked away inside coats and blazers and peaked at when the days starts to feel a little tough.
Pack a little positivity with hahonline | hahonline.co.uk
Returning or starting school this September is bound to feel a little different. Our resilient little guys might be feeling a little nervous so why not pop a little positivity in their pencil case as a little reminder that no matter how strange things are, they continue to be their wonderful fantastic selves.
Bags of style from Jane Foster | janefoster.co.uk
P.E bags don't always have to be emblazoned with a sports logo, these rainbow bags by Jane Foster would make the most perfect bag to cart thier kit to school (they've just got to remeber it, that's all!)
Keep them warm and toasty with Little Hotdog Watson | littlehotdogwatson.com
Expertly designed these hats are not only bold and stylish they are super practicle too! The faux fur trim ensures little heads are kept nice and warm and the outer cotton layer is rain resistant. Even more, the reflective detailing guarantees that they will be seen and not just heard as the days get shorter and the nights draw in.
It's okay to make mistakes by Bread & Jam | wearebreadandjam.co.uk
This awsome little pouches by Bread & Jam are filled with pencil topped rubbers and they serve as reminder that not everything turns out right first time around and thats okay!
As with everything hah, I selected the most positive, bold, fun and practical pieces that I think would make ace additions to any back to school ensamble. Have you been shopping small for school supplies, I'd love to see what you've been buying. Comment below.
