Final week, James began preschool. The unhealthy 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!!” Once I choose him up within the afternoons, he tells me the issues he did (“I washed my arms!!”). Daniel and I are so pleased and relieved that he’s adjusting effectively to a brand new scenario, particularly after final yr and never seeing many individuals.
Naturally, I wished to make the transition as straightforward as doable for him. I attempted my hardest to get all of the issues he would want (what the heck is a rain go well with?) whereas ensuring he’d like them, too. That meant virtually every part was dinosaur themed, however a minimum of he was pleased to take his lunchbox to high school! Right here is among the nice choices I discovered!
My Favourite Finds for Preschool
Nike Flex Runner in sport/royal with college purple
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 tug on, too.
At his preschool, the youngsters put on outside footwear and indoor footwear (that they go away in school). They really helpful Crocs clogs for indoor footwear. James has been sporting them round the home for a couple of weeks to get used to them and to this point they’re nice. Light-weight, straightforward to scrub, straightforward 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 numerous sizes). Fully waterproof, not too heavy, washable, and the handles on the perimeters are the most effective half. They make it really easy for James to tug on and off.
Pottery Barn Youngsters Mackenzie Dino backpack (small dimension)
James loves dinosaurs and this backpack is roofed in them. It’s cute, waterproof, and sturdy, with padded shoulder straps. I believe the small dimension will serve us effectively for a pair years. Oh, and we received it monogrammed together with his identify.
Cat & Jack Yellow Raincoat
For some cause, I simply actually wished a yellow rain jacket for him. This one is lovely. It’s extra of a light-weight jacket, so maintain that in thoughts for those who’re in search of a fall jacket with slightly extra heat within the lining.
CamelBak water bottle
Leakproof, spill-proof, BPA-free, and dishwasher secure
Wildkin Dinosaur Lunch Bag
I pack this with a snack, fabric serviette, and James’s water bottle matches proper inside (he comes house earlier than lunch), however it’ll match a bento field or different lunch container and an ice pack!
Crayola Youngsters Reusable Face Masks
James’s college asks that youngsters solely put on stable colour masks (prints might be distracting to little ones). This 5-pack of colourful fabric masks has been an awesome choice to this point. The masks are light-weight, machine-washable, the ear straps are adjustable, and there’s a bendable nostril clip inside the cloth to assist the masks keep safe. Bonus: there’s slightly tag to write down his identify on every masks.
