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 decide him up within the afternoons, he tells me the issues he did (“I washed my fingers!!”). Daniel and I are so completely satisfied 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 wished to make the transition as straightforward as doable for him. I attempted my hardest to get all of the issues he would wish (what the heck is a rain swimsuit?) whereas ensuring he’d like them, too. That meant nearly the whole lot was dinosaur themed, however a minimum of he was completely satisfied to take his lunchbox to high school! Right here is a few of 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 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 youngsters 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 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 several sizes). Fully waterproof, not too heavy, washable, and the handles on the edges are the very best half. They make it really easy for James to drag on and off.
Pottery Barn Youngsters 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 believe the small measurement will serve us properly for a pair years. Oh, and we acquired it monogrammed along with his identify.
Cat & Jack Yellow Raincoat
For some purpose, I simply actually wished a yellow rain jacket for him. This one is lovely. It’s extra of a light-weight jacket, so preserve that in thoughts should you’re in search of a fall jacket with a little bit 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, material serviette, and James’s water bottle suits proper inside (he comes house earlier than lunch), however it would 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 material masks has been an incredible possibility to date. The masks are light-weight, machine-washable, the ear straps are adjustable, and there’s a bendable nostril clip throughout the cloth to assist the masks keep safe. Bonus: there’s a little bit tag to write down his identify on every masks.
