Not just pencils, ‘Desk Enhancements’. (Back-to-School: best school supplies)
It seems even the kids in my little group of friends are ready to go back to school. My children are punching each other in the face, not because they’re fighting, but because they’re so bored. My girlfriend’s three daughters spent the other day laying on the floor with their new backpacks on asking if it’s time for school yet? My other friend’s kids are acting like an old married couple, finishing each other’s sentences.
It’s time for school. It’s also time for pencils! When you’re attempting to master writing the alphabet, you’re going to want something in your pencil box to make you smile.
My sister in law sent along these personalized pencils for my kids one year. Not a lot makes my kids happier than seeing their name on just about anything. I might even get them to eat chicken if I could find a way to tattoo their names on it. Hmmm…
These pixel pencils aren’t likely to get lost in the dark reaches of a first grader’s desk. But don’t take that as a challenge.
Scented pencils? In my day we only had scratch and sniff stickers which always smelled the same (like strawberries) and we liked it.
These dessert shaped erasers will ease the pain of erasing all your hard work.
I’m honestly not sure how I graduated without this gummy bear pencil sharpener slash eraser I made it through without it, but maybe it explains all those years of angst. Or not.
Tomorrow we conquer, or at least look at, back to school anxiety.
PS: We escaped backpack shopping with no characters! The Fairfax for Madison. With her name, see my point above: ‘all things are better with your name on them.’ We also got the Collegiate for Max. Someday they’ll be in therapy because I wouldn’t let them have character backpacks but for now we’re all happy.
