Summer is quickly fading away, and kids will soon be heading back to school. For me, my daughter will be off to school for the first time as she is starting Junior Kindergarten. She has been in daycare for the past 3 years, but there are so many things I need to worry about now that I never had to before!
As parents, many of us spend a lot of time getting ready for back to school. For me, getting my daughter ready for back-to-school was the greatest experience. Shopping + kids = a great experience? I know it might sound crazy…but let me explain! Taking my four year old daughter to the mall to shop is overwhelming, and depending on her mood can be very stressful. My daughter often wants to buy things I have no intentions of buying and navigating a mall with a child is hard! I usually don’t get a chance to buy items that I planned to and come home with new items I never wanted.
So why was my experience this year so great? Because I did it all online at Well.ca! It was seriously a fabulous experience!
Before sitting down with my daughter at the computer, I decided what she will need for kindergarten. She needs a backpack that is big enough to hold a lunchbox, library book and folder, a lunchbox that is able to hold a lot, a water bottle, and a bento style box. Well.ca makes back to school shopping a breeze! There is even a dedicated page on the site with all of the back to school items listed by category!
Knowing what we needed to buy, I sat down with my daughter and let her pick what we wanted off the site! It was that easy. I think our entire shopping experience took 5 minutes! It also helps that like most little kids she is easily swayed by her favourite colours (pink and purple) and she only considered items that had those colours.
My daughter chose this SoYoung backpack. As a parent, I love that it is laminated on the outside making it easy to clean, has an interior mesh pocket for all of my daughters treasures, and is big enough to hold her lunch bag, outdoor gear, a communication folder and library books. My daughter loves the pink flower and the chest clip!
Bringing a lunch is a whole new world for us. My daughter chose the Lug Kids Choo Choo Lunch tote, the Goodbyn Bynto, a Colibri resuable snack bag, and a Nalgene water bottle. All of these items chosen are easy for little hands to use — my daughter is four, and she’s able to open and closer her items easily.
Once we placed our order and I was smiling at how easy the entire experience was, we waited for our items to arrive. They arrived at our door within a few days and my daughter has been enjoying trying on all of her back-to-school gear!
Instead of braving the mall with your kids this year, sit down a the computer, head over to Well.ca and let them pick their back-to-school items with ease. Your patience will thank me!
