Back to School Checklists for Kids

Back to school can be a stressful time. Whether your child is entering school for the very first time or starting a new grade, you’ll want to have them ready for going back to school this fall.

For the Backpack

  • Backpack: Children going to school for the first time can expect to pack extra clothing like a sweater, a folder for school paperwork, lunch bag, water bottle, and school supplies. Backpacks should be big enough to fit everything they need, small enough for little bodies and whimsical enough to smooth the transition between home and school life. Brands such as Skip Hop, Zoocchini, SoYoung and Parkland have cute packs that feature kids’ favourite animals and characters.
  • School supplies: Your child will need a pouch for carrying crayons, washable markers, glue stick, safety scissors, and other supplies to school. Check out Parkland Highfield versions with butterflies, robots, or candy hearts.
  • Pocket folder: Especially during the first days of school, your kindergartener will be bringing home a lot of permission slips and other school paperwork for you. Sending them with something durable like the Oxford Twin Pocket Folder will help make sure they don’t forget anything important.
  • Luggage tagFor little ones who have yet to learn their address and phone number, a luggage tag for their backpack will be a lifesaver when their teacher asks. Just be sure to attach it to the inside of their backpack for privacy.
  • Labels: Grab a set of Stuck On You labels to put an end to lost items or unintentional swaps with other children!

For the Backpack

  • Backpack: As your child enters higher grades and school work gets more involved, backpacks for elementary school will have to be bigger. Also, your child might not be as interested in animal figures as they once were. For grade school, look for supportive packs for ages 6-11 in bright colours like those made by Parkland (look for “Bayside” in the name), Jansport and Fjallraven.
  • School supplies: Grade school students will need sturdy cases like the Parkland Fraction that features cool patterns. Stash pencilspens, pencil crayons, glue, pencil sharpener and scissors inside.
  • Pocket folder & notebook: Don’t forget a pocket folder for all those permission slips and pizza day sign-ups! An Oxford Twin Pocket Folder is perfect for their backpack, throw in some notebooks too!
  • Labels: Emily Press has got you covered for preventing losing lunch bag, water bottle, or backpack entirely! If you want to ensure the labels really stay on (especially for clothes), opt for iron on labels from Stuck On You.
