Final 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!!” After I decide him up within the afternoons, he tells me the issues he did (“I washed my arms!!”). Daniel and I are so completely happy 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 straightforward as attainable for him. I attempted my hardest to get all of the issues he would want (what the heck is a rain swimsuit?) whereas ensuring he’d like them, too. That meant virtually every little thing was dinosaur themed, however at the least he was completely happy to take his lunchbox to highschool! Right here is a few of the nice choices I discovered!
My Favourite Finds for Preschool
Nike Flex Runner in recreation/royal with college pink
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 comfortable, 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 out of doors sneakers and indoor sneakers (that they depart in school). They really useful Crocs clogs for indoor sneakers. James has been carrying them round the home for just a few weeks to get used to them and to date they’re nice. Light-weight, straightforward to wash, 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 several sizes). Utterly waterproof, not too heavy, washable, and the handles on the edges are the perfect half. They make it really easy for James to drag on and off.
Pottery Barn Children 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 feel the small measurement will serve us properly for a pair years. Oh, and we bought it monogrammed along with his identify.
Cat & Jack Yellow Raincoat
For some cause, I simply actually needed a yellow rain jacket for him. This one is cute. It’s extra of a light-weight jacket, so hold that in thoughts in case you’re on the lookout for a fall jacket with a little bit 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 house earlier than lunch), however it is going to match a bento field or different lunch container and an ice pack!
Crayola Children Reusable Face Masks
James’s faculty asks that youngsters solely put on stable coloration masks (prints will be distracting to little ones). This 5-pack of colourful material masks has been a terrific possibility to date. The masks are light-weight, machine-washable, the ear straps are adjustable, and there’s a bendable nostril clip inside the material to assist the masks keep safe. Bonus: there’s a little bit tag to write down his identify on every masks.
