We interrupt your beach vacation to remind you of next month’s return to academia. Now that you are sufficiently bummed out (kind of), carry on.
|Pencil Us In|
You can keep your touch-screen technology; nothing beats an old-school No. 2 stowed in a personalized pencil case ($25).
|The Cat’s Meow|
There’s nothing cooler than an insulated lunch bag ($20). Except one that snaps onto a backpack.
First-day jitters look even more darling when accompanied by a cuter-than-a-kindergartner book bag ($58) and kneesocks.
|A Is for Apple|
We know what little Johnny Appleseed would have used to stash his sammie or snack in — this biodegradable lunch box ($15).
|It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane!|
It’s a superhero backpack ($15)! PVC-free toddler packs come with matching masks for your caped crusader.
A little bit punk, a little bit paleontologist. The dino-inspired backpacks ($15-$60) come in four sizes perfect for prehistoric pre-K students.
Like the school year, we’re just getting started. Check out more favorite backpacks for minis.
