6 Great Back To School Items
I am sure we can all agree that this year has been a whirlwind and it looks nothing like we expected. As a teacher and a parent, I am gearing up for back to school in a completely different manner and looking for items that are good for my kids’ physical and mental health. I gathered 6 great back to school items that I know you are going to want to grab! Check out the list below.
Funkins Lunch Bags, Napkins, Placemats & Face Masks
My kids were due for new lunch bags after using the same ones for several years. I was elated to find out that Funkins was sending us a great variety of their products! Funkins lunch bags are insulated, machine washable and have easy zippers for kids to use. They also have cute patterns and matching napkins and placemats as well as cute face masks. The napkins and placemats have two layers of soft cotton fabric and are also reusable and eco-friendly.
The face masks are the new pencil bag according to my kids. They told me after their first day that everyone has cool face masks and when they saw the Funkins cute face masks for kids, they were super excited. There was a ton of different styles in bright and cheerful patterns and they are soft and comfortable to wear. The kids liked that they were adjustable as well. These are non-medical grade and only for personal use, but they are great for school and the kids are happy!

Get your kids off screens after school and have fun with Grouch Couch. I have to tell you, one of the biggest things that we found was that my kids were screen obsessed after remote learning. I know many parents felt the same way. Grouch Couch from Spin Master is a fun and easy solution to help curb that screen time and get your kids having some good family fun.
Grouch Couch is easy to play, simply roll the dice, place your treats and press the remote to see if Grouch Couch is hungry enough to pay you in missing toy tokens for the treats you give. You never know which treats will please Grouch Couch and this is anyone’s game, as the player with the most missing toy tokens wins the game. We played this game for hours the other night and laughed a ton, the kids loved when Grouch Couch shot out tokens. Grab your own Grouch Couch at Walmart or Target.
Hands on is the way to be right now and my daughter just about lost her mind over the Insta Studio by WeCool Toys. She is a slime connoisseur and lives for those videos of kids making slime. When she opened up the Insta Studio and was given her own ultimate hands-free video recording studio with slime, various mix-ins and backgrounds she was elated.
The Insta Studio has everything they need to make their own slime video magic. The base of Insta Studio is adjustable and allows children of all ages to shoot viral videos using a simple smartphone. We captured this awesome slime shot the other day and it just pops so well!
She had a blast with this and our son was ready to get in on the action too. He proclaimed himself the director of her videos and now they have a whole show they want to work on. We will see how it goes! If you want to get your hands on Insta Studio, check it out at Target.
