Happy Back to School season! With my own first grader headed out to full day school this fall, I’m feeling nostalgic as I check out his classroom and find myself in a new phase of momhood! While it might seem simple for me to run to the store and grab the essentials he needs for his school supply list, that’s not always the same for some families and being able to give back is a huge priority for us!
So this season, while shopping for Charlie’s school supplies, in partnership with Madame Deals, I also decided to give a backpack with supplies to a local collection of school supplies!
Thanks to the generosity of these sponsors, these backpacks will be filled with love, essentials, and sent off.
One of the most important things to remember during the busy school season is SNACK TIME! Wonderful Pistachios make a perfect snack for kids and families in the midst of school season because they are the perfect size, they are nutritious and taste DELICIOUS! We personally love the Roasted and Salted flavor, but I have a feeling that Sweet Chili is right up some of your alleys! My husband happened to escape with some of the Wonderful Almonds – these are great for bringing along in the car as a great source of fiber! Even better, the serving size is about the size of a Post-It note, so you can always measure perfectly at the office! Don’t forget to wash it down with a little FIJI water. We LOVE grabbing these before a big game, heading to the drop0off line or tucking into a lunch box. The various sizes help with quenching any size thirst!
We headed out to do our shopping and as we stopped to do our shopping, I came across these cinch sacks. These were a GREAT find because our local store put together these packs based on supply lists for the schools in our area. We picked up a few of these to assemble our backpacks because what better way to meet needs than to specifically buy what they need!
Paired with our sponsored backpack, these were the perfect fit! Plus, they had some great supplies that will come in handy throughout the school year, including these awesome cinch sacks.
The boys and I put together four backpacks and are so excited to send them on their way this weekend.
What are your essential supplies for back to school? How can you give back this season?
