Back to school this year is going to look a little different to normal years. After having the children at home for nearly six months, it is something that we are all looking forward to, though. But what will they need, and how will things look?
I know that all schools and local authorities will have things that will slightly differ. For example, at the school that my children currently go to, they have been asked to not bring in things like pencil cases and pens and pencils, and the school will provide all of that stuff for now. They can bring in a bag for their things like snack pot, water bottle, and packed lunch box, but they don’t need to bring too much else in.
I have been thinking about what I want them to take in, though, and I think a small hand sanitiser is a good idea, just to be safe. Though I know there will be places to wash hands at school, it will be helpful to have their own way to sanitise if they feel like they need it. I got a small bottle of each from my sister-in-law who works as a Body Shop consultant, so they can just fit in their bags.
Back to school with Trunki
We have been very kindly sent some of the eat range from Trunki, ready for back to school. I had no idea that the did an eat range, but with packed lunch boxes available in different colours, styles, and characters, as well as water bottles and snack pots, there will be something for everyone.
The range is so well made, and I really like the attention to detail, all made with little ones in mind. For example, the water bottles are simple to use and open, but they come with a strap that you can put on the bottle, to make it easier for them to carry as it can be worn around their neck. The same goes for the packed lunch boxes. They can be carried and have a padded carry handle. But they can also be worn as a backpack, which I think is a really great idea. Little hands walking to school, especially if bags aren’t being taken to school at the moment, can really benefit from being able to carry their lunch in this way.
The water bottles are £7.99, the lunch boxes are £12.99, and the snack pots (that come in a pack of three) are also £7.99. For what you get and the quality of each product, I think that you do definitely get value for money. They come with the quality that you would expect from Trunki, with bright colours and patterns, depending which you choose. They’re really fun and I think that they will be great for the children this year for school lunches and snacks.
Are your little ones returning to school? Have you heard of the eat range from Trunki before? It would be great to hear what you think.
