Buying school supplies is the most exciting part of getting ready for school. The reality of late summer is a little less harsh when you have a (new!) backpack full of fresh notebooks, binders and pencils.
The supplies kids bring to class are also subtle ways to show off their personality. Even though students have to follow many rules, they still have to decide the color of their number two pencils and erasers. To that end, everything on this list is packed with personality, from the pencil case to the lunch bag. This is the upgraded version of a standard back-to-school shopping list.
Your kids will still end up with everything they need – just cooler versions of standard scholarly products. With such fun supplies, they’ll feel confident for the first day of school.
