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 completely satisfied and relieved that he’s adjusting effectively to a brand new scenario, particularly after final 12 months and never seeing many individuals.
Naturally, I wished 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 nearly every thing was dinosaur themed, however at the very least he was completely satisfied 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 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 tug on, too.
At his preschool, the youngsters put on out of doors footwear and indoor footwear (that they depart in school). They beneficial Crocs clogs for indoor footwear. James has been carrying them round the home for just a few 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 perimeters are one of the best half. They make it really easy for James to tug 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 effectively for a pair years. Oh, and we bought it monogrammed together with his identify.
Cat & Jack Yellow Raincoat
For some motive, I simply actually wished 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 in search of 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, fabric serviette, and James’s water bottle matches proper inside (he comes residence earlier than lunch), however it can match a bento field or different lunch container and an ice pack!
Crayola Children Reusable Face Masks
James’s faculty asks that youngsters solely put on stable colour masks (prints may be distracting to little ones). This 5-pack of colourful fabric 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 throughout the material to assist the masks keep safe. Bonus: there’s a bit tag to jot down his identify on every masks.
