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!!” After I choose him up within the afternoons, he tells me the issues he did (“I washed my palms!!”). Daniel and I are so glad and relieved that he’s adjusting effectively 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 potential 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 nearly all the things was dinosaur themed, however not less than he was glad to take his lunchbox to highschool! Right here is a number of the nice choices I discovered!
My Favourite Finds for Preschool
Nike Flex Runner in sport/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 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 outside sneakers and indoor sneakers (that they depart in school). They really useful Crocs clogs for indoor sneakers. 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 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 numerous sizes). Utterly waterproof, not too heavy, washable, and the handles on the edges are one of the best half. They make it really easy for James to drag on and off.
Pottery Barn Children 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 obtained it monogrammed along with his title.
Cat & Jack Yellow Raincoat
For some motive, 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 in the event you’re in search of a fall jacket with just a little 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 can match a bento field or different lunch container and an ice pack!
Crayola Children Reusable Face Masks
James’s faculty asks that children solely put on stable colour masks (prints may be distracting to little ones). This 5-pack of colourful material masks has been an awesome possibility to this point. 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 just a little tag to write down his title on every masks.
