It’s back to school time! Or is it?
There is still a great deal of uncertainty on how and where schooling will take place for our children this fall. Every school district, city, state, and country is adjusting to our “new normal” and on how to bring children back to education safely.
So no matter where or how your kids will be attending school, we want to provide you with our Back to School Favorites. Some of these can be used at home; others are perfect for the classroom. Take a look at some of our favorite things for schooling, no matter where it occurs.
And from all of us at Military Moms Blog, we wish you a happy and safe Back to School season!
Experiences are everything!
Wanderwild was founded by two moms with a love of cheerful patterns and purposeful features. They also love making memories with their kids by exploring nature, serving others, and traveling; experiences are everything!
Wanderwild was founded on the idea that with the right gear, children can set out with their families for days filled with learning, exploring, and making memories. To do this, they created backpacks with great features, fun prints, and the right fit for kids. Pockets where you want them, adjustable straps, and details made for kids’ fingers. Wanderwild packs are perfect for school, sports, trips, and activities.

Bring sleep and peace back to your house.
Back to school is bringing up anxiety for many of us this year. The uncertainty of our school year is stressful, and our children feel this stress. Separation anxiety can also make the back to school transition very difficult for children and their parents during normal circumstances. This year, children are experiencing stress at a much higher rate. After being home for months, they will have to adjust to a new schedule yet again. This adjustment may be challenging. Anxiety often causes sleep disruptions, and the lack of sleep can make our daily routines stressful for everyone.
The Brave Knights kit was just awarded the Creative Child Magazine 2020 Kids Product of the Year Award in the category of Helping Anxiety and Fear! Let Sir William the Brave Knight bring sleep and peace back to your house. Sir William the Brave Knight was designed to specifically help ease fears and help children overcome them.
