These are just your basic supplies that maybe even Spiro would know to get. OK, maybe like two out of the four. Ha! They’re fun, cute, and Zelda helped pick them all!
Backpack: We’ve got a lot of backpacks around here. Like, we really didn’t need to order a new one, but in the spirit of getting school supplies, we wanted to let her pick one she loved and was excited to use at her new school. She went with this option, which is totally Zelda.
Sleep Mat: I put Zelda into the classroom that doesn’t really do naps, but more like a quiet time. Zelda isn’t really the napping type (at least for the last two years). However, quiet time still requires a sleep mat, so we hunted hard to find the cutest option. Leave it to Crate & Barrel to have the most adorable striped mat with a big pink bow on it.
Lunch Boxes: Here’s a good parent hack for you guys—get two lunch boxes. I learned after this summer when Zelda was doing day camp that I didn’t always get around to cleaning out her lunch box and was then in a tizzy the next morning. Or, if the lunch box gets left at school, you’re ready and waiting with the backup box. Zelda picked out both of hers, which are the Bentgo style because they’re all the rage. One is pink and purple while the backup is decked out in unicorns.
Silverware: We wanted to get her reusable silverware so she could be a little civilized and utilize all those manners we’ve taught her.
