Back to School Must Haves
Believe it or not, school will be back in session soon! So from snacking to tech needs - pay attention parents! Here’s a crash course on some of this year’s must haves for students! And you might be tested on this later!
Let’s talk about fueling up with better for you snack options. We want the kids to focus on their school work and not their growling tummies! But as parents, we’re always looking for foods that are better for you options, taste great, and are easy to pack. So, I love hummus as an option for lunches or after school snacks. Sabra To Go Packs are super convenient and come in these perfectly portioned Single serving sizes.
These are so easy to toss in a lunchbox or backpack! And you can stock up on these at home too, it's the perfect snack for kids to grab after school. Since hummus is made from chickpeas, this is a great way to get kids to eat more beans.
Back-to-school means back to routines, homework, schedules… and unfortunately germs! Don’t believe me? Did you know Backpacks have an average of 10,000 germs per square inch? And School desks have been found to have 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet?! Crazy, right?
Easy Liner® brand shelf liners by Duck® Brand will definitely come in handy and now they feature Clorox® antimicrobial protection in some core liner technologies, which protects the liner from germs and the growth of mold and mildew. There are so many ways to use this!
You could place a sheet on the floor near your front door at home or in the dorm room to protect the floor from dirty backpacks and shoes.
Or In dorm or gym bathrooms, place some shelf liner on the shower floor to create a barrier between the bare floor and your personal items. And teachers would totally appreciate this in the classroom! A shelf liner with antimicrobial protection is great to protect the surfaces of desks, drawers, shelves, art supplies and lockers.
You can toss the liner in the washing machine for easy cleaning, so add these to your shopping list of school supplies!
Next we have to talk tech needs. Nowadays, the kids have several devices to keep them connected and on top of their school work so we need to make sure we’ve got the right stuff to keep them charged and ready to go. If you want power anywhere, Kanex has got you covered with plenty of cool options.
The GoPower USB-C is so powerful, it can recharge a 12″ MacBook from 0 to 100% power. It can also charge other compatible USB-C devices, such as Dell, Lenovo, and HP laptops, or the new LG phone - all on the go!
Charge an iPhone or Android multiple times over with the additional standard USB port and you can charge two devices at the same time. It’s so sleek and easy to take with you. Another bonus is the built-in circuit protection and smart charging technology so your tech is protected at all times.
The EasySync iPad Keyboard from Kanex is a nice little compact Bluetooth keyboard that lets you type to any Bluetooth supported device. It includes a cover that doubles as a smartphone or tablet folding stand and it has a built-in rechargeable battery that lasts 2 months on a single charge.
The DuraBraid™ ChargeSync USB cable with Lightning Connector lets you connect your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to any USB port to easily charge or sync your device. I love the colors - space gray, rose gold, and gold for a premium finish - so it perfectly matches the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, and new iPhone SE. The premium cables are available in 4ft, 6ft, and 9ft.
With all of these ideas, the student in your life will be in for a fantastic school year!
