School Bag Essentials - How you can prepare for the new school year!

As September approaches, a new school year is about to start, calling for new supplies!

We share some practical tips on how to feel prepared for the start of term. If you need to grab some new supplies or stock up on school essentials, we've got you covered.

The Basics

Make sure you start the year on the right foot with all the basics. A durable and fashionable backpack is the foundation for the entire year, so you won’t want to skimp on this one. When looking for a school bag, make sure it’s comfortable, durable, and kid-approved.

The Fjallraven Classic Backpack is a popular choice for kids and teens, featuring lots of colour options as well as functional features like zipper pockets, a two-way zipper with rain flaps, and a dirt-resistant, water-resistant exterior.

Classroom Essentials

When planning for your child’s school bag contents, consider the essentials, including food, tech items, paper, and pens. The amount of tech gear your child needs depends on their age and school, with older kids and teens tending to have more need for electronic devices. Although tech can be a hefty investment, it can offer some great benefits to learning - helping to build on handy digital skills.
