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 arms!!”). Daniel and I are so joyful 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 simple 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 all the things was dinosaur themed, however at the very least he was joyful 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 pink
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 soft, 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 children put on outside sneakers and indoor sneakers (that they go away at college). They advisable Crocs clogs for indoor sneakers. 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, 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 several 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, water resistant, and sturdy, with padded shoulder straps. I feel the small measurement will serve us properly for a pair years. Oh, and we acquired it monogrammed together with his identify.
Cat & Jack Yellow Raincoat
For some purpose, 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 in case you’re on the lookout for a fall jacket with a bit of 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 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 a terrific 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 material to assist the masks keep safe. Bonus: there’s a bit of tag to jot down his identify on every masks.
