Happy Back to School, Glamamoms!
Whether you're homeschooling, sending the kids to school full-time or part-time, this time of year is an exciting new start for our little ones, filled with endless social, emotional, and academic possibilities. Thanks to Babbleboxx, we had the opportunity to review six new products guaranteed to keep the kids (and their grown-ups) happy, healthy and engaged, all year-long.
Lunch Bags, Reusable Cloth Napkins & Placemats + Family Face Masks from Funkins
One of the biggest changes for many students this year is that they are required to wear face masks. Thus, the number one style question I receive lately is where to purchase cute face masks for kids that fit well and they'll want to wear. Funkins makes the most adorable cotton masks for the whole family. I love the prints and they're super soft. We've been practicing all summer long at the beach with my little guy so he'll be more comfortable come September when he has to wear one all day. Funkins face masks wash nicely and didn't shrink when I accidentally put them in the dryer. Reusable is a must both economically and environmentally.
Another big change this year for us is that hot lunches will no longer be served. That means I'll be getting creative in the kitchen and investing in good lunch bags, food containers, and napkins. Funkins Insulated School Lunch Bag Tote for Kids are washable, have an interior pocket, a name tag and also come in adorable prints. We've been ninja crazy over here since 2014, so we're partial to the red and black! The cloth napkins for kids can be used as both a napkin and a placement. It's so fun to mix and match sets. Maybe my kids will forget that they're eating PB&Js everyday if it's packed and accessorized in Funkins?!

Lunch Notes from Me! series Tear-Off Lunch Notes Books from MyWish4U
Accompanying my culinary masterpieces will be these adorable Lunch Notes from Me! What an inexpensive and easy way to let your children know you are thinking of them. It's also great that they'll read the notes, learn something new, and likely share and engage with their friends about the subjects. My big boys are obsessed with riddles and jokes so these could not be more perfect. The back of the notes are blank for personalized messages too. They've been boredom busters all summer!
Grouch Couch from Spin Master
Gaming has been on heavy rotation since quarantine. Family game nights are a nice way to spend time together and supplement homeschooling. For children 5+, Grouch Couch is a funny, fast-paced game whereby the Grouch eats up and spits out lost goodies. He makes lots of faces and noises so it's a real hit with the younger set. The goal is to collect as many coins as you can. It's the perfect game for my boys' ages and the whole family can get in on the action. There's nothing to put together and the objective is easy to understand. Makes a great gift too!
Deodorant, Shampoo and Conditioner from TBH Kids
Personal hygiene is always an important topic, especially as kids transition from having their caretakers bathe them and remind them to wash to managing hygiene on their own. There are no more summer pool baths once school starts! My kids love the personal care products from TBH Kids. The packaging is adorable with the text bubbles and they smell clean and fresh. The ingredients are natural and encourage clear, hydrated skin and clean, oil free hair. Works for us!
InstaStudio Hands-Free Video Station from WeCool Toys/Compound Kings
For your budding YouTube personality, InstaStudio by WeCool Toys is a hands-free device to help shoot your very own videos. Equipped with an adjustable base and rotating head to shoot at the best angle possible, InstaStudio allows kids of all ages to shoot videos hands-free while using a smartphone. It's very easy to use and comes with InstaStudio, 3 scented compounds, a variety of foam beads, and mix-ins to whip up a creative concoction. InstaStudio is sure to be an "It"-gift this holiday season.
Blue Light Glasses for Kids from Zenni
Another way to make a fashion statement at school this year is with Blue Light Glasses for kids from Zenni. Made of high-quality acetate and available in small, medium, and large sizes for ages 4-15, Zenni eyewear is designed for comfort. These frames include adjustable temple tips for easy at home adjustments, soft and flexible temple tips that won’t squeeze behind the ears, and extended nose pads to sit comfortably on all nose bridges. All frames include Zenni’s Blokz lenses, designed to block harmful UV and blue light to help protect young eyes from digital eye strain, blurred vision, and disrupted sleep. Stylish and practical, always our goal for the products we showcase.
Hope these cool new products give you some inspiration for the new school year. Best wishes for a happy and healthy one!
