Back to School Shopping Ideas 2011

Back to School time is so much fun!! 

We've been searching for just the right lunchboxes, backpacks, and clothes!!

I thought I would share our favorite picks for this years

back to school purchases!

We are going with a Pottery Barn backpack for both my 5 year old grandson, who is going to Kindergarten, and one for my 2 year old granddaughter who will be going to a 2k preschool 3 days a week.

His favorite choice was the
Batman™ Small Backpack
Got it ordered this morning and it's pretty cool that it will have his name on it!!

We received it on Friday, Aug 5th.  It is the PERFECT size for a 5 to 7 year old....and even for the smaller kids!!  It's just a little bit smaller than a regular sized backpack, but big enough for their folders etc.....
Mackenzie Chocolate Bird Small Backpack

We're going to get Adleigh the blue one or the brown one with hearts and flowers on the top right....lolol or at least tentatively!! 

I just found this one today and love love's at the Personalization Mall
and this one
Girls Personalized Backpack - Girls on the Go - 5301
Personalized Turtle Backpack for Girls - 8730
Both have matching lunch boxes....soooo cute for a preschooler!! :)

I also ordered Payton this little container to keep his food cold

Spencer Ice Pack Lid Food Storage 

This is soooo cool because you can freeze the lid and it keeps the food cold all day!!

I am also going to order him one of these

These are from the Container Store for $ would be sooo nice to have something that he can either put ketchup or ranch in and dip his stuff in!! 

I am also a HUGE FAN of the
lunchboxes now!! 
Why would you buy a little person a regular lunchbox
when you can get one of these??

The inside has different compartment for all the different items

This is the outside

I found it on under kids bento lunch boxes
I found these cute little sandwich cutters and I am debating on whether to buy them or not!!
Japanese Bento Accessories Sandwich Cutter 4 designs Small
Payton would love these

Japanese Bento Accessories Sandwich Cutter Small Animal and Flower
I want these for Adleigh

LOL I would even like to eat sandwiches more if they were this cute!! :)

These are all of my favorites!!  There are tons of options out there....Here are the websites of the vendors we have chosen:
