First days of schools are fresh. There is nothing like scuff-free shoes, clean backpacks, and stark white sheets of paper. And for our little students, the school supplies are definitely the most exciting part. We found some great colorful, bright, and fun options to bring joy to their day and make them excited to walk through the doors of their new class!

1. Fun Erasers

Yes, this will always be a thing. Erasers are not only for correcting mistakes, but also to stare at lovingly because they are just so darn cute.

2. Pencil Case

These are a necessity, but we still want them to be eye catching.

This one from Target is adorable and also doubles as fidget toy.

We have it on good authority that fanny packs are all the rage, as well as personalization. Well, this pencil case with applique letters has the best of both worlds.

3. Colorful Pencils

Again, another must, but why not make it fun?

5. Backpack and Lunch Box

In many schools, knapsacks are the only form of self-expression. While we don’t want to spend too much money on them, as they will probably get abused two weeks into school, these cute sets from CAMTOP come with a matching lunch bag that is adorable alongside the big bag. Plus, the material is very durable and waterproof.

Our little ones need to drink to stay hydrated with optimal energy levels! NO better way to encourage that habit than with a super cool collapsible water bottle!
