I have this theory about back-to-school shopping — getting excited about school supply shopping can set the tone for the entire year. It is more than going out to pick up the requisite supplies, it is the kick off for a whole new year of possibilities. When kids are excited about picking out their supplies, they are excited to start school and when they are excited about school they are more open to learning.
I’ve always loved back-to-school shopping and school, so in my house both are a big deal. And I think my excitement is rubbing off on my kids. They were a wee bit excited to go back-to-school shopping at Target.
Tip – shop early and on a weekday evening to avoid the crowds. When we went, we nearly had the place to ourselves.
This year Sissy will start preschool for the first time, so she was excited to help pick out her very first school supplies (as well has help big sister find all of her supplies).
Me? I wanted my girl to get this light-up mustache lunch box. So cute! But she went another way…
I don’t just shop for my girls, I shop for supplies to donate. I know not everyone can afford to shop for supplies, so I do what I can to donate supplies so that kids still have the thrill of having new supplies for the new school year.
