Choosing the Perfect School Bag to Last the Whole Year Through

Choosing the Perfect School Bag to Last the Whole Year Through

As you prepare for back to school, there is one really important item to get right from the very beginning. The school bag. Here are the best tips to choosing the perfect school bag to last the whole year through.

You need to pick a bag that is:

– ergonomic (easy for them to use, wear and carry without hurting their back or body)

– the right size for your child (age appropriate sizing is important)

– easy for your child to open and use (save the teacher and foster independence)

– able to fit all the required school gear 

On a side note; as a teacher, it is so much easier if their bag can fit their lunch box and bottle inside – much less chance for things to get lost or left behind. 

I have classified my top picks by age – as your child gets older they need a bigger bag that fits a bit more and functions in different ways.

Younger Children:

This is my favourite for so many reasons, firstly it’s eco-friendly (a huge plus), a wide opening zipper section, easy to clear and super comfortable for them to carry.

Why? It’s a good size for them carry themselves, it fits the basic things needed in the early years – food, drink bottle and a spare set of clothes. Plus it’s pretty cute!

Spacey enough to carry essentials, good straps and adjustable lengths to fit perfectly and super fun designs! 

This classic backpack is from the much loved Penny Scallan brand so guaranteed to be great quality, whilst ticking off all the other backpack essentials. 

Older Children:

I like this bag because it has lots of different spaces and pockets, making it easier to stay organised and to take care of their belongings.
