We’ve scoured etsy (tough job I know!) to find our top 10 back-to-school items to brighten your child’s day. All of these items are Australian-made too so you know you’re supporting small businesses. Here they are…
1. Zippered Pencil Case, from Piggledee
This cute handmade pencil case is sure to be a hit in the classroom! There are plenty of fabric choices, as well as a host of other gorgeous items from her store, such as sandwich wraps and food pouches.
Hand stamped onto stainless steel, and with your choice of charm, this is a sophisticated way to ensure your child’s name is on their bag.3. Custom School Book Covers, from BlossomTreeDesigns
These are very cool, and a good way to make your child’s school books stand out. They are customised then sent to you as a printable, so you can print them as many times as you like!
This vibrant crayon/pencil roll is just what the younger kids need to keep their things tidy! It rolls up and there’s a secure fastner to keep everything in place. Also a great addition to your handbag for an on-the-go activity.
We all love the Cat in the Hat and remember the books from our childhood, so this handy library bag/backpack will definitely be a winner as our children discover the magic of Dr Seuss! It has a drawstring closure and there are many other fabrics available to suit your little one if green eggs and ham is not their thing.
Remember the first day of the school year forever with this personalised photo frame. It can be freestanding or hung on the wall for you to compare how much your child grows over the year!
One for the girls, these gorgeous handmade bow hair ties will make getting their hair done in the morning easier – who doesn’t want fabulous bows in their hair! Make sure you take a look at their store for other hair accessories (and some amazing decorative garlands!).
Another one from the Piggledee store, I couldn’t go past the striking elephant print. Again, many colours to choose from and the inside is fully waterproof so you’re able to have a reusable ice block in the bottom to keep to food cool. Make lunch time super stylish!
One for the bigger kids, these joke cards come as a printable for you to download, cut out and add a bit of humour to your child’s lunchtime. They’ll be the funniest kid in the playground!
Super cute, fully lined snack pouches to help you use less plastic in your child’s lunchbox. They are also an easy way to separate snacks to help control portion size – perhaps have one for morning tea and one for afternoon tea.
And don’t forget to have a look at our mixes which are perfect for lunch boxes – nut-free and free from anything artificial. Make a batch on a Sunday evening and have a lunchbox snack for every day of the week ready to go. Click here to find out more.
