Back to School made easy

With many schools finally getting into full swing it's a great time to make sure you're kiddo is covered when it comes to being back to school. Even if they are staying home for schooling, staying calm and comfortable at home is important too. Either way here are some awesome products that can help make this school year a little easier!

Gear from FOCO like the tote bag and mask my daughter is sporting are great for kiddos learning at home. The tote bag would come in handy for keeping school related materials organized and together, or for using on homeschooling field trips. With the sturdy cord handles it will definitely hold up all year long! And of course the mask is perfect for pretty much anywhere!

And for those kiddos that are back to school in person a backpack is a must have these days with all of those books and electronic devices they use now. With your favorite teams logo on the front and padded shoulder straps it's sure to be a hit! Not to mention how cool they will look getting decked out in stylish leggings with shoes to match! Don't fret if you're not a big Patriots fan like we are, they have various other sports teams available too.

Speaking of going to school in style. The perfect pair of sandals has always been a must in my house no matter where we are headed. My daughter will wear sandals pretty much year round as long as it's not raining or snowing! And for the sandal lover in your life I highly recommend checking out Viakix. Their sandals are the perfect combination of function meets fashion. They have the most amazingly comfortable foot-beds I've ever experienced in a sandal. Trust me they are worth checking out. With a nice selection of styles and colors you'll be trying to figure out how to not get at least two pair at at time!

Froggy’s Lair BioSphere is a great STEM project for youngsters whether they are attending a public school or at home. A BioSphere is a self-regulating ecosystem studied by both scientists and animal-lovers. Using the BioSphere, kids will learn about how an aquatic Nitrogen Cycle system works, which is a STEM concept. The bioactive sand (located under the colorful gravel) acts as a biological filter by converting waste and excess food to nutrients. The enclosed bamboo stalk consumes the nutrients (which discourages algae growth) in addition to acting as a natural aerator (which provides essential oxygen).

We have one of the BioSphere's and let me tell you it is super easy to set up and the frogs are so much fun to watch. One of ours actually molted within 24 hours of having them. My daughter and I have had so much fun researching and learning all about the African Dwarf Frogs.

For those homeschooling mamas and hardworking teachers getting through the day without losing your oomph isn't always easy. No matter how warm or cool the weather is, ones love for coffee is steadfast. Caveman Coffee Co. wants to become your morning and afternoon pick-me-up of choice in any season. With a variety of convenient ready to drink options I'm positive you'll find the perfect brew to get your day started..or keep it going.

If cold brews aren't your thing then maybe Marquis is. Marquis is a mixture of blended organic ingredients from around the world made to craft a plant-based, fruit-forward refreshment that delivers vitamins, antioxidants, and vitality. Their unique blend of Yerba Mate, Green Coffee, and Green Tea provides a balanced lift that helps you win each day, without the ups and downs of most caffeinated drinks. I for one like the fruity flavor combinations that they come in. And the fact that they are packed full of vitamins and antioxidants that I'm not always the best at getting otherwise.

For the majority of Americans, mosquito season means prevention and preparing to treat pesky bites if you spend time outdoors.
