It’s already August and time to start thinking about going back to school. This year, you probably have a few extra concerns, so it’s a good idea to start getting ready and get your kids used to the idea of going back to school, even if they’re going back to online learning.
School shopping is an important part of getting ready, and this year you’re going to need a few extras to adjust to the new normal. To help you out, we’ve put together a checklist of the back to school essentials for 2020.
One of the most important part of any back to school kit. You’re going to need pens, pencils, rulers, rubbers and paper, at the very least.
Shop in bulk for pens and pencils to get big savings and make sure you have enough to last the whole year. Notepads are essential for jotting down notes, doodles and important memos. Why not make a personalized notebook for your kids this year to make sure they don’t lose it. A custom photo note book with their favorite photo or drawing will be sure to make any little ones happy about going back to school.
Hygiene is more important than ever, and it can be difficult to get kids to understand how important it is to keep their hands clean. Get them their own little bottle of hand sanitizer and get them in the habit of using it regularly.
Many shops now do scented or flavored hand sanitizers which makes hygiene a bit more fun. For sensitive little hands, be sure to pick a hand gel that’s suitable for sensitive skin.
If your kids are going back into school, the CDC recommends wearing a mask to protect the spread of droplets and protect others. We’ve got a range of personalized masks for kids and adults that mean you don’t need to compromise on style.
Choose a personalized mask with your design printed on it, or an embroidered mask with your personalized text. This is a great option for forgetful kids and a way to get them excited about wearing a mask.
Start the academic right by staying organized. Perfect for busy mums to keep track of everyone’s important dates, or for secondary school students to organize their homework deadlines. This is a great option for kids going back to online learning and a way to keep them focused on tasks. This A4 wall calendar is ready to hang on the wall in your office, bedroom or kitchen.
Make a personalized calendar with Printerpix and you can personalize the start date to September 2020 and put in your personalized dates, like school holidays. Choose 12 photos for each month and make your own special unique calendar.
Ditch the plastic and get a personalized reusable water bottle to take to school. Hydration is important for learning brains, so make it easy for your kids with a fun personalized water bottle they can easily refill. Made from sturdy aluminum, these bottles are kid-proof.
Your kids won’t need any encouragement to drink more water, they’ll love their personalized bottle! Upload one of their favorite pictures, add their name or create a cool cartoon design.
