Brought to you by Target Australia
So, you've survived Christmas and New Year, and you've just settled into the holiday routine, when you realise...there's only two weeks left until the kids return to school!! The summer holidays will be over before you know it, and you'll be back to the daily grind. Lunches, books, homework, after school activities and more. It's time to get those school supplies sorted.
back to school supplies are really great for the budget, and great on quality. This year, Target have reduced our school shopping angst considerably by gifting Seth and Eme a back to school survival kit, including a new backpack each, filled with almost everything they will need this year. The school our children attend sends home a very detailed list of what stationery is required for the year, and thankfully we've been able to cross most of the items off the list (Target, you rock!)
Target). The purple lunch bag that was included with her backpack won't go to waste though. Eme has to carry her asthma medication and spacer to school each day, so it will be contained in there, along with some sunscreen...perfect. Seth was gifted a set of Nude Food Movers and Smash drink bottle. I love the Nude Food range. The containers are BPA free, sturdy, and easy enough for children to open. The wrap and roll container includes a reusable food wrap, which is perfect for our school's "no packaging" policy. To add to their containers, I bought some Nude Food snack tubes from Target as well (reduced to $3 each at the time of posting), for the kids to transport their "munch and crunch" and morning tea to school.
Tip: When you're school shoe shopping, make sure you take along a pair of your child's school socks. That way you'll get the exact fit. Sports socks won't suit, as they're generally thicker than school socks. For more tips, read this --> Useful tips for finding the right fit - school shoesSo, what extras might you need?
