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 decide him up within the afternoons, he tells me the issues he did (“I washed my fingers!!”). Daniel and I are so comfortable and relieved that he’s adjusting effectively to a brand new state of affairs, particularly after final 12 months 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 go well with?) whereas ensuring he’d like them, too. That meant nearly the whole lot was dinosaur themed, however no less than he was comfortable 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 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 comfortable, 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 footwear and indoor footwear (that they go away at college). They advisable 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 this point 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 Children 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 acquired it monogrammed along with his identify.
Cat & Jack Yellow Raincoat
For some cause, I simply actually wished a yellow rain jacket for him. This one is lovely. It’s extra of a light-weight jacket, so hold that in thoughts for those who’re in search of a fall jacket with just a little 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 residence earlier than lunch), however it is going to match a bento field or different lunch container and an ice pack!
Crayola Children Reusable Face Masks
James’s college asks that children solely put on strong shade masks (prints will be distracting to little ones). This 5-pack of colourful material masks has been an amazing possibility to this point. The masks are light-weight, machine-washable, the ear straps are adjustable, and there’s a bendable nostril clip throughout the cloth to assist the masks keep safe. Bonus: there’s just a little tag to put in writing his identify on every masks.
