Soon summer will be over and it will be time to send children back to school. Every parent is anxious how their little ones will feel when the holidays end. Is my child ready to get back to the routine? Or is he/she still in the holiday mood? Should I prepare them for school or just let them be? Parents are always in a dilemma before the start of a new school year. Here is a good way to try reminding your child that school starts soon. Get them gifts that will be useful at school! Place these in a basket and make it look special. Here are a few goodies that you could place in a gift basket.
Crayons & Paints: Whatever be the age of your child, colorful crayons will always bring a bright smile on their face. Children love to potter with colors. They have a vivid imagination, and always an explanation when they color the leaves blue, the sky yellow, and the cat green.
Pencils & Erasers: These are a must for children of all ages. Children not only love to scribble with pencils, but also use them to sketch pictures, draw funny faces, and chew the ends while deep in thought. There are a variety of pencils to choose from. Those made from lead are best suited for children in the pre-teens. Erasers come in different shapes, colors and sizes as well. Choose a few shapes that will intrigue your child, making them ask questions regarding the shapes, sizes, colors and what each of it depicts.
Personalized Backpacks: Your child is sure to find that everything's more fun when the backpacks they carry are friendly-looking. Such backpacks will also make your child stand out in the crowd. Make sure the backpack has adjustable straps that will make your child feel comfortable and happy.
Personalized Folders: Get the 9" x 12" ones which have two four inch deep pockets. Such folders will teach your child to be organized as they are just the right thing when it comes to keeping subjects separate. They are easy to navigate as much as they serve to encourage children to keep their papers safe and handy.
Personalized Stickers: Children will love custom stickers. You could get a pack of the 2" round stickers, which come in sets of 12. Usually these stickers have a semi-gloss label and their printed names will not only make your child happy, but also make them stand out in a crowd. Your child will never lose anything at school as these stickers will add a unique and personalized touch to whatever it is used on.
Personalized Clipboard: Another very useful gift for kids is the clipboard. Let your child start getting organized with a personalized clipboard. Clipboards are available in a variety of colors and sizes. Choose a color that is your child’s favorite and they are good to go. There will be a proud smile on your child’s face.
