Final week, James began preschool. The dangerous 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!!” After I choose him up within the afternoons, he tells me the issues he did (“I washed my fingers!!”). Daniel and I are so completely happy and relieved that he’s adjusting properly to a brand new scenario, particularly after final yr and never seeing many individuals.
Naturally, I needed to make the transition as straightforward as potential 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 virtually every thing was dinosaur themed, however not less than he was completely happy to take his lunchbox to highschool! Right here is a number 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 tug on, too.
At his preschool, the youngsters put on out of doors footwear and indoor footwear (that they go away in school). They advisable Crocs clogs for indoor footwear. James has been carrying them round the home for a couple of weeks to get used to them and to this point they’re nice. Light-weight, straightforward to wash, 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 numerous sizes). Fully waterproof, not too heavy, washable, and the handles on the edges are one of the best half. They make it really easy for James to tug on and off.
Pottery Barn Youngsters Mackenzie Dino backpack (small measurement)
James loves dinosaurs and this backpack is roofed in them. It’s cute, waterproof, and sturdy, with padded shoulder straps. I feel the small measurement will serve us properly for a pair years. Oh, and we received 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 hold that in thoughts for those who’re in search of a fall jacket with a bit extra heat within the lining.
CamelBak water bottle
Leakproof, spill-proof, BPA-free, and dishwasher protected
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’ll match a bento field or different lunch container and an ice pack!
Crayola Youngsters Reusable Face Masks
James’s college asks that children solely put on stable coloration masks (prints might be distracting to little ones). This 5-pack of colourful material masks has been a terrific possibility to this point. 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 bit tag to write down his title on every masks.
