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!!” Once I decide him up within the afternoons, he tells me the issues he did (“I washed my arms!!”). Daniel and I are so glad and relieved that he’s adjusting effectively to a brand new scenario, 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 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 glad to take his lunchbox to highschool! Right here is among the nice choices I discovered!
My Favourite Finds for Preschool
Nike Flex Runner in recreation/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 depart at college). They really helpful Crocs clogs for indoor footwear. James has been carrying them round the home for just a few weeks to get used to them and thus far 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). Utterly waterproof, not too heavy, washable, and the handles on the edges are the very best half. They make it really easy for James to drag 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 believe the small measurement will serve us effectively for a pair years. Oh, and we received it monogrammed along with his identify.
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 preserve that in thoughts when you’re on the lookout for a fall jacket with somewhat 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 matches proper inside (he comes residence earlier than lunch), however it’s going to match a bento field or different lunch container and an ice pack!
Crayola Youngsters Reusable Face Masks
James’s faculty asks that youngsters solely put on strong colour masks (prints could be distracting to little ones). This 5-pack of colourful material masks has been a fantastic choice thus far. 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 somewhat tag to put in writing his identify on every masks.
