With the new school year quickly approaching, it’s time for parents to trade in pool floaties for school backpacks! To help parents transition from summer to back to school, lifestyle expert and mom, Erica Domesek, teamed up with Amazon to share some of her tips to help parents be as prepared as possible and rock the return to the classroom.
Erica mentions that the start of a new school year can be challenging bringing new routines, and – sometimes – nerves! So, her biggest tip is to involve your kids in planning for the return to school. Amazon makes it easy to do this together from the comfort of your couch. Amazon.com/backtoschool is a one-stop destination for all your kids’ needs at low prices – from electronics like headphones and Amazon Devices, to essentials like clothing and backpacks, and supplies such as pencils and crafting materials.
On Amazon’s Back to School shopping guide, you can shop for items by deals, grade, category, and even your kid’s favorite character. And Amazon recently launched Your Supply List, which helps parents seamlessly find and shop for their child’s classroom-specific lists as requested by their teacher.
Another idea is to build a back-to-school menu together to take the stress out of packing lunches and snacks by trying new combinations of your kid’s favorite ingredients. For inspiration – Erica recommends purchasing an Echo Show 5 Kids and asking Alexa for recipe help in the kitchen – just say “Alexa, how do I make a sandwich?” Plus, Amazon has you covered with fun lunchboxes, snack storage, and even ice packs.
Here’s another fun tip – get your kids excited by crafting with them! Have your little one select a few items to personalize together. For example, Erica’s son is going to preschool for the first time, so they decorated his water bottle and lunchbox with stickers of his favorite things to make sure he’ll show up on the first day with confidence.
And her final tip is to make it easy on yourself. Visit Amazon.com/backtoschool where you’ll find a wide selection, low prices, and fast-free shipping on thousands of eligible back-to-school items and you’ll be ready to go!
