We are officially back to school, and a back to school care package for kids is always great!
I still cannot believe that we are back in school. We officially started this past week, and there is no stopping us now. One way to get kids excited and even more ready for school is a back to school care package! Not only does that include things that will be useful for school, but also items that will get their brains up and running from that summer time break. Here are some items that I would include in my back to school care package for kids.
Banana Panda for immersing our kids in educational play.
If you have not heard of Banana Panda before, you are going to hear all about it right now. I absolutely am obsessed with these puzzles by Banana Panda. The Observation Puzzles-Dinosaur, is perfect for ages 4 and up. First, they put the jigsaw puzzle together. Then search for the objects in the picture frame. Great way to encourage your child to learn all about Earth’s history!
The Suuuper Size Puzzle Solar System for ages 7 and up had my older 2 kids more than excited about putting a puzzle together as well as learning all about the Solar System and the researchers/explorers behind the Solar System. This jumbo educational 300-piece puzzle depicts the most important and interesting objects and explorers of the solar system.
One thing I can’t forget to mention when it comes to these Banana Panda puzzles. They all come with a poster that is double-sided! The poster is a poster version of the puzzle as well as an educational aspect on the other side with lots of cool facts. Use code playandlearn for 15% off your Banana Panda products, valid July 10th – September 30th!
Eating lunch in style and protecting the Environment.

Funkins makes mealtime much more fun and greener with their line of lunchbags, napkins, and placemats for kids. Funkins lunchbags are not only insulated to keep food fresh, but are ultra-durable.

Staying physically active is a must.
Sometimes we get caught up in all the educational aspects of back to school that we forget how important it is to keep our kids physically active. Integrating healthy habits and physical activity into your daily routine is so important! Depending on the day, I will have them finish their homework before or after their outdoor playtime. SmarTrike products are the perfect addition to your child’s physical activity.
smarTrike believes in providing kids with the freedom and confidence to explore the world through
physical activity from an early age. They do so with the help of a range of products, from Folding
Stroller Trikes to Balance Bikes to Scooters. I love that their products are designed to support childhood development, allowing children to grow and learn new skills with the same product for years to come.
