by Rachel Naud
No matter what age your child is, there is one universal fact when it comes to back to school—every student wants to look and feel their best for the new school year! If your child wants to get back to COOL, we have some suggestions sure to make the grade.
Smart Shopping at Walmart Canada
We all know back-to-school season can get expensive, which is why we always turn to Walmart Canada for their back-to-school essentials. Here, you can find everything you need in one convenient location, with a wide variety of options and budget-friendly prices. If your teen is embarking on their academic journey, these items have consistently been part of our shopping list.
Essentials like Post-its and Scotch Brand products have come in handy over the years. Scotch Magic Tape can be a lifesaver when unexpected accidents happen like your pet dog getting hold of your teen’s homework! Post-it Super Sticky Notes—on the other hand—are versatile for flagging textbook pages or leaving notes around the house. Add a bit of excitement to your back-to-school preparations with the Noted by Post-it collection. It’s like a treasure trove of cool designs and accessories, where you can create a unique and curated vibe. What’s even better is that these items can really set the stage for a successful school year!
Back-to-School Stylish Essentials
Whether you have a tween or a teen, one thing is for certain–everyone wants to look and feel good for back to school. Many students have found Under Armour backpacks to be a reliable choice throughout their school years. These backpacks are not only stylish but also built to handle heavy textbooks and gym gear, making them a practical choice for parents. Their Hustle Sport Backpack is water-resistant and has a durable bottom. It also has a laptop sleeve, which is perfect for going to and from class.
New shoes are also a must for back-to-school and these Unisex SlipSpeed Mesh Training Shoes have a pretty cool convertible heel thing going on! It’s a game-changer, allowing you to easily switch from training to recovery mode. No need to lug around an extra pair of shoes, which is a total win, especially for students with early morning or after-school practices.
Also, why not grab a treat for yourself too? The Under Armour Essential Oversized Crew fleece sweatshirt offers a super cozy and soft fit. Its oversized design also allows you to stay comfortable and effortlessly stylish, just like the cool kids!
Spicy Snack Upgrade
Here’s a snack tip worth considering:
Cheestrings by Black Diamond has been a long-time favourite for many, and your teen might be ready to take their snacking game up a notch. While still keeping that cheesy goodness, Cheestrings X-treme Jalapeño introduces a spicy twist with the authentic taste of jalapeño peppers. They’re also a great source of calcium and protein, plus no artificial colours or flavours to worry about. Plus, they remain a fun and tasty snack that your teen will enjoy. You can pick them up at most major grocery stores across Canada.
Period Emergency Kit
If you have a tween or teen girl, here’s one of the most supportive acts you can provide them: a period emergency kit. Sometimes, periods can catch them by surprise, so you want them to be prepared so they can feel confident and comfortable. That’s where U by Kotex Balance Pads for teens come in handy. They’re uniquely sized for teens and are shorter and narrower to fit teens comfortably. These pads are dermatologist-tested for skin safety and infused with 100% plant-based charcoal to combat period odour. Pack an emergency kit that they can keep in their locker so they’re always prepared, which will just give them the confidence they need to get through the year.
Everyone wants to feel confident for back-to-school. The new EcoPure Everyday Essential Comfort Underwire Bra from Wonderbra keeps you in comfort all day long while giving you the support you need. It’s also good for the planet as it’s made from 65% recycled fibres. Not to mention, it has trendy details like a J-hook for strap convertibility and moulded spacer cups, which make it perfect for everyday wear. You can grab it at Wonderbra.ca in a variety of sizes for $57!
