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 decide him up within the afternoons, he tells me the issues he did (“I washed my palms!!”). Daniel and I are so blissful and relieved that he’s adjusting nicely to a brand new scenario, particularly after final yr and never seeing many individuals.
Naturally, I wished to make the transition as straightforward 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 the whole lot was dinosaur themed, however at the least he was blissful 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 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 youngsters put on outside sneakers and indoor sneakers (that they depart at college). They advisable Crocs clogs for indoor sneakers. James has been sporting them round the home for just a few weeks to get used to them and up to now 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 several sizes). Utterly waterproof, not too heavy, washable, and the handles on the edges are the perfect 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, waterproof, and sturdy, with padded shoulder straps. I believe the small measurement will serve us nicely for a pair years. Oh, and we received it monogrammed along with his title.
Cat & Jack Yellow Raincoat
For some purpose, I simply actually wished a yellow rain jacket for him. This one is lovely. It’s extra of a light-weight jacket, so preserve that in thoughts if you happen to’re in search of a fall jacket with slightly 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 house earlier than lunch), however it would 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 stable colour masks (prints might be distracting to little ones). This 5-pack of colourful material masks has been an ideal possibility up to now. 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 slightly tag to write down his title on every masks.
