*A post in collaboration with the Disney Store
With just a couple of weeks left of the school holidays and a new school term on the horizon, we’re thinking about going back to school. Many readers will know we haven’t had it easy with Olly and his year at pre-school with tears a plenty but we have high hopes for the new school year and one way that we’re building his confidence is by giving Olly the choice with his back to school backpack and stationery. There is nothing more exciting to a four year old than a new backpack!
As parents we think we know what back to school essentials our children need for the new term but what do children think are their own essentials? Olly was challenged by the Disney Store to come up with a checklist of back to school essentials and this is what he thought he would need.
- A backpack
A backpack is pretty much essential. Needed for all the school loot, homework and reading books, Olly says this Disney Pixar Cars 3 backpack is the coolest bag ever! Having watched Cars 3 over the Summer, Olly is obsessed with all things Cars and having this backpack which is appliquéd with his favourite characters is pretty much the best backpack ever. It’ll definitely stand out on his peg in the cloakroom.
- Drinking bottle with water in
- Pencil case
- Pencils, a rubber and a sharpener
- Packet of Tissues
- Little Ted (of course!)
- Tin for things I need like cars!
- Games and toys (playing cards and cars)
- Snacks (Cucumber, cocktail sausages and chocolate mini rolls)
I’m not entirely sure where Olly thinks he’s going, back to school or on an expedition / holiday / day trip but he certainly isn’t likely to get bored with that little checklist.
Olly was sent some of his back to school essentials from the Disney Store and they are fantastic. The drinks bottle is a firm favourite. He’ll be putting his name on it and it’ll keep him company throughout the day in school making sure he’s keeping himself hydrated.
The pencil case Olly was sent is full of gadgets. A boxy pencil case with four hidden compartments that are accessible via the press of a button and hide a rubber, a sharpener, sellotape and a pair of scissors. There’s even a set of five pencils inside to use. I’m pretty sure this is the coolest pencil case Olly has ever seen!
Olly was also sent a Disney Pixar Cars 3 stationery set which was full of all the little essentials needed for a good start to the school term.
Inside the stationery set was a Cars 3 folder, ideal for all the art and masterpieces he’ll be bringing home over the next few months. There was a Cars 3 notebook which is brilliant and although Olly won’t be taking this to school, this will be great for him to use at home with his writing practice. There was also a fabric pencil case which is the perfect size for back to school, with 2 pencils, a rubber, extendable ruler, pen, sharpener and a pair of scissors, there’s everything you need in one handy bundle.
We’re all set for back to school with these fantastic products from the Disney Store, are you ready for school yet? Head on over to the Disney Store to find your child’s favourite Disney back to school essentials.
