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 arms!!”). Daniel and I are so comfortable and relieved that he’s adjusting effectively to a brand new scenario, particularly after final yr and never seeing many individuals.
Naturally, I wished to make the transition as simple as potential for him. I attempted my hardest to get all of the issues he would want (what the heck is a rain go well with?) whereas ensuring he’d like them, too. That meant virtually all the things was dinosaur themed, however not less than he was comfortable to take his lunchbox to high school! 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 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 out of doors sneakers and indoor sneakers (that they depart 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 thus far they’re nice. Light-weight, simple to scrub, 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 dimension)
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 dimension will serve us effectively for a pair years. Oh, and we acquired it monogrammed together with his identify.
Cat & Jack Yellow Raincoat
For some purpose, I simply actually wished a yellow rain jacket for him. This one is lovable. It’s extra of a light-weight jacket, so maintain that in thoughts should you’re in search of a fall jacket with somewhat 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, fabric serviette, and James’s water bottle suits proper inside (he comes residence earlier than lunch), however it is going to 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 will be distracting to little ones). This 5-pack of colourful fabric masks has been an incredible possibility 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 jot down his identify on every masks.
