Last week, James began preschool. The dangerous information is I miss him as my fixed companion, however the excellent news is: he completely loves it. On the drive there within the mornings he tells me, “I’m so excited!!” When I decide him up within the afternoons, he tells me the issues he did (“I washed my hands!!”). Daniel and I are so glad and relieved that he's adjusting properly to a brand new state of affairs, particularly after final yr and never seeing many individuals.
Naturally, I needed to make the transition as simple as attainable for him. I attempted my hardest to get all of the issues he would wish (what the heck is a rain swimsuit?) whereas ensuring he’d like them, too. That meant virtually every part was dinosaur themed, however not less than he was glad to take his lunchbox to highschool! Here is a number of the nice choices I discovered!
My Favorite Finds for Preschool
Nike Flex Runner in recreation/royal with college crimson
Nike Flex Plus in smoke gray
James has worn these sneakers for a yr now and I can’t say sufficient good issues about them. They’re soft, breathable, tremendous versatile, and light-weight. The loops on the again and tongue make it really easy for him to drag on, too.
At his preschool, the children put on outside sneakers and indoor sneakers (that they go away at college). They beneficial Crocs clogs for indoor sneakers. James has been sporting them round the home for a number of weeks to get used to them and up to now they’re nice. Lightweight, simple to wash, simple to slip-on, and the heel band helps them keep on.
Crocs rain boots
These are the rainboots he’s worn for the previous 2 years (in several sizes). Completely waterproof, not too heavy, washable, and the handles on the edges are the very best half. They make it really easy for James to drag on and off.
Pottery Barn Kids Mackenzie Dino backpack (small measurement)
James loves dinosaurs and this backpack is roofed in them. It’s cute, water resistant, and sturdy, with padded shoulder straps. I believe the small measurement will serve us properly for a pair years. Oh, and we received it monogrammed together with his identify.
Cat & Jack Yellow Raincoat
For some purpose, I simply actually needed a yellow rain jacket for him. This one is lovely. It’s extra of a light-weight jacket, so preserve that in thoughts when you’re on the lookout for a fall jacket with slightly extra heat within the lining.
CamelBak water bottle
Leakproof, spill-proof, BPA-free, and dishwasher protected
Wildkin Dinosaur Lunch Bag
I pack this with a snack, material serviette, and James’s water bottle matches proper inside (he comes residence earlier than lunch), however it'll match a bento field or different lunch container and an ice pack!
Crayola Kids Reusable Face Masks
James’s faculty asks that children solely put on strong coloration masks (prints may be distracting to little ones). This 5-pack of colourful material masks has been an awesome possibility up to now. The masks are light-weight, machine-washable, the ear straps are adjustable, and there’s a bendable nostril clip throughout the material to assist the masks keep safe. Bonus: there’s slightly tag to write down his identify on every masks.
