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 choose him up within the afternoons, he tells me the issues he did (“I washed my fingers!!”). Daniel and I are so comfortable and relieved that he’s adjusting properly to a brand new state of affairs, particularly after final 12 months and never seeing many individuals.
Naturally, I needed to make the transition as simple as doable 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 every part was dinosaur themed, however not less than he was comfortable to take his lunchbox to highschool! Right here is among 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 12 months now and I can’t say sufficient good issues about them. They’re soft, 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 out of doors footwear and indoor footwear (that they go away at college). They really useful Crocs clogs for indoor footwear. 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, simple to wash, simple 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). Fully waterproof, not too heavy, washable, and the handles on the edges are the perfect 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 feel the small dimension will serve us properly for a pair years. Oh, and we acquired it monogrammed together with his title.
Cat & Jack Yellow Raincoat
For some motive, I simply actually needed a yellow rain jacket for him. This one is cute. It’s extra of a light-weight jacket, so maintain that in thoughts if you happen to’re on the lookout for a fall jacket with a 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 residence earlier than lunch), however it’ll 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 ideal choice to this point. The masks are light-weight, machine-washable, the ear straps are adjustable, and there’s a bendable nostril clip inside the cloth to assist the masks keep safe. Bonus: there’s a bit tag to write down his title on every masks.
