Summer hasn’t ended yet but we are in full back to school mode. I am not looking forward to the day-to-day mayhem I associate with the school year. However, rather than complain about it, this year I decided to make the whole process more fun, both for me and for my children. The solution? Turning it into a family adventure.
First we checked what we already had at home so we don’t spend on things we don’t need. Then we tried on clothes. My kids definitely grew up during the summer! Finally I saved each school’s supply list on my phone and took my kids shopping to Target. I’ve been collaborating with Target for back to school for a few years now and I love it because they have uniforms, backpacks, snacks, accessories and all the supplies that my children need in one place.
Both my daughter and my son wear uniforms, so I had to buy bottoms such as khaki and navy blue pants and skirts that comply with each school’s dress code. However, I know how important it is for kids to feel they have their own style, so I allowed them to choose the backpacks they wanted as long as they had well-cushioned straps. They also choose accessories like lunchboxes, binders and clothing for dress down days.
There were so many choices that my children were super excited. They even want school to start so they can show off their new backpacks. Mission accomplished!
