Ready for back to school shopping?

Shopping for back to school is definitely looking different this year. Not only are we shopping for the usual grade related school supplies, now we also need to think about "safety supplies" like masks and sanitizers to help protect against the spread of Coronavirus. My daughter is usually big time in to back to school shopping but this year hasn't been quite as enthusiastic. And I honestly can't say I blame her. But hopefully once we start picking up some things that enthusiasm will return!

Scribble Stuff has a variety of creative writing alternatives for tweens/teens compared to classic pen brands. The packaging is newly rebranded to convey a fun, bold, and whimsical statement! The Scribble Stuff line is popular from the variety of gel pen inks: metallic, neon and glitter colors are perfect for any creative activity. The super-stylish, on trend palettes come in a variety of pack sizes and price points that encourage self-expression and doodling through drawing and coloring.

Pencils are a back to school basic and the USA Gold pencil line is made right here in America! They are manufactured in a factory that has operated in Lewisburg, Tennessee for 57 years. Families can support American jobs when they buy USA Gold pencils for back-to-school this season. The USA Gold pencil brand is teacher recommended! In an April 2017 third party survey of teachers, over 89% of teachers familiar with USA Gold Pencils would recommend them for use in their classroom.

There’s no reason protective masks should be uncomfortable and ugly. Grand Fusion Houseware’s line of masks, in a variety of colors and patterns and sized for children as well as adults, are made from a super-soft polyester fabric using the same weave as its popular soft cooling towels. Designed to reduce eyeglass fogging, and made with adjustable ear straps and a comfort strip for the nose, the breathable, soft masks have just the right amount of stretch to form-fit to the face.

For adults, they are available in pink, gray, black, pink camo and blue camo, while children ages 3 to 12 can choose between pink camo and blue camo. They all feature inner pockets for five-layer, activated carbon filters made with melt-blown cotton and non-woven fabric.

Schools are riddled with germs, and in the age of Coronavirus, parents will want to send their children back to school with items that help them keep safe. GermBloc Alcohol Free Sanitizer is one of the leading products on the market today. Parents and families alike love their producers because, not only do they help protect against bacteria, they also moisturize the skin while doing so (fun fact: the dryer your hands are, the less sanitizer helps protect against germs).

Additionally, we have the GermBloc phone cleaning kit. Phones are constantly covered in bacteria and this phone cleaning kit will help kids stay healthy while going on field trips, and walking around school in general.

If you're kiddos aren't headed to school quite yet (or are too young for school) here are a couple of great products to keep them entertained at home!
