I am usually a little sad this time of year. I will miss having the kids home and it means that summer is coming to an end. I do think it’s fun though to shop for new back to school items – new supplies, find new food and snack ideas and get a little ME time back. I’ve gathered a few of my new favorite things for this school year below.
New Back to School Items:
Setton Farm’s new healthy snack to try. California grown pistachios combined with plums and held together by date and brown rice syrup. They are small individual sized bars that are the perfect bite-sized snack loaded with protein, fiber, iron, potassium and antioxidants. They are crunchy and gooey and I believe the kids would love them as a side in their lunchbox.

It will definitely AMAZE you! And make you smile. An electric pencil sharpener in the shape of a Fire Truck, Swat Truck or Ice Cream Truck, but the cuteness doesn’t end there. It lights up and makes sounds! Plus it does sharpen easily and really well because it comes with a carbon steel blade to last a long time.
Can even see the shavings through the back window. SO fun!
You’ve seen them here before. Because they are the BEST reusable sandwich/snack bags and I’ve tried a lot! We’ve also heard a lot about the waste of plastic straws lately and now you can carry your own reusable one in a CUTE holder.
Great sale going on now – Spend $30 on any EcoBagIt! (3 sizes!) or Straw (bamboo or stainless steel) and get 20% off. Plus for each $30 of EcoBagIt! product added to your cart (after discount) you’ll get a 6″ My Last Straw kid’s bamboo straw FREE and FREE Shipping.
There are 3 main things I look for in a kid’s drink bottle.
- Handle to carry
- Easy open. Meaning no caps to take off.
- Insulated. It HAS to stay cold.
We love EcoVessel and have been using their insulated bottles for years from big to small. The Frost above is the kid’s insulated with flip straw lid. Stays cold for 36 hours with their Tri Max Insulation Technology. Use for drinks in their lunch or a water bottle that stays at their desk. You might also like The Scout which is not insulated, but a little cheaper with cute designs or The Summit which is a bit bigger for the old kids.
Still want summer fun to last longer? I don’t blame you. Here are a couple of toys from Goliath Games you might want to check out:
With the Hydro Zoom Ball you can get out the water balloons. Fill one up and stick it inside. Zoom it over to your friend and see who gets wet first when the balloon pops!
Take turns with the rod and catch a fish with Shark Bite, but watch out because the shark may bite when you least expect it. You’ll have a REEL-y good time!
