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 choose him up within the afternoons, he tells me the issues he did (“I washed my fingers!!”). Daniel and I are so glad and relieved that he’s adjusting nicely to a brand new scenario, particularly after final yr and never seeing many individuals.
Naturally, I wished to make the transition as straightforward 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 nearly all the things was dinosaur themed, however at the very least he was glad to take his lunchbox to high school! Right here is among the nice choices I discovered!
My Favourite Finds for Preschool
Nike Flex Runner in sport/royal with college crimson
Nike Flex Plus in smoke gray
James has worn these sneakers for a yr 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 children put on outside footwear and indoor footwear (that they depart at college). They advisable Crocs clogs for indoor footwear. James has been sporting 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 scrub, 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). Fully 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 Youngsters Mackenzie Dino backpack (small measurement)
James loves dinosaurs and this backpack is roofed in them. It’s cute, waterproof, and sturdy, with padded shoulder straps. I believe the small measurement will serve us nicely 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 cute. It’s extra of a light-weight jacket, so preserve that in thoughts in the event you’re searching for a fall jacket with slightly 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 suits proper inside (he comes house earlier than lunch), however it’ll match a bento field or different lunch container and an ice pack!
Crayola Youngsters Reusable Face Masks
James’s faculty asks that children solely put on strong coloration masks (prints will be distracting to little ones). This 5-pack of colourful material masks has been a terrific choice 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 slightly tag to put in writing his identify on every masks.
