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.
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.
