It’s that time of the year again. Summer vacation is over and the new school year is begining (or has already begun). 

Whether you're back-to-school already or still enjoying those last few days of summer, new school supplies are a must!

That’s why we’re here to help you breeze through your shopping list with our:

 Back-to-school supplies must-haves:

  • Elmer’s Disappearing Purple Liquid Glue: Elmer’s new Disappearing Purple Liquid Glue is awesome for kids as it comes out purple but dries clear! (We recommend it for kids of all ages but it’s extra perfect for those who are just learning how to glue!)

  • Elmer’s Re-Stick Glue Stick: Elmer’s Re-Stick Glue Stick is our go-to for making poster presentations and arts and crafts projects, as it is easily adjustable for up to 5 minutes. What parents love the most about it: no mess!

    Try to spread out the preparation throughout the summer so you're not scrambling in August!

    I share my calendar with my kids now so they can see what activities they have going on each day. They can prepare themselves and don't have to ask me questions about the schedule.

    I set up a "drop off" station at home by the front door. Everyone drops their bags there and then brings the lunch boxes to the kitchen. Routine is the best way to stay on track.

    We start getting a few weeks prior to school starting; earlier bedtimes, less screen time, storing summer clothes.
