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 fingers!!”). Daniel and I are so pleased and relieved that he’s adjusting effectively to a brand new scenario, particularly after final yr and never seeing many individuals.
Naturally, I needed to make the transition as simple as attainable for him. I attempted my hardest to get all of the issues he would wish (what the heck is a rain go well with?) whereas ensuring he’d like them, too. That meant virtually every thing was dinosaur themed, however at the least he was pleased to take his lunchbox to highschool! Right here is a few of the nice choices I discovered!
My Favourite Finds for Preschool
Nike Flex Runner in game/royal with university red
Nike Flex Plus in smoke grey
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 outside footwear and indoor footwear (that they go away at college). They beneficial Crocs clogs for indoor footwear. James has been carrying them round the home for a number of weeks to get used to them and to date 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 the most effective half. They make it really easy for James to tug on and off.
Pottery Barn Kids 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 bought it monogrammed along with his title.
Cat & Jack Yellow Raincoat
For some motive, I simply actually needed a yellow rain jacket for him. This one is lovely. It’s extra of a light-weight jacket, so hold that in thoughts should you’re on the lookout for a fall jacket with just a little 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 dwelling earlier than lunch), however it can match a bento field or different lunch container and an ice pack!
Crayola Kids Reusable Face Masks
James’s faculty asks that youngsters solely put on stable colour masks (prints could be distracting to little ones). This 5-pack of colourful fabric masks has been an important choice to date. The masks are light-weight, machine-washable, the ear straps are adjustable, and there’s a bendable nostril clip inside the cloth to assist the masks keep safe. Bonus: there’s just a little tag to jot down his title on every masks.
