As some schools return to in-person learning, it’s important to ensure your kid’s safety during Covid and give them all the tools they need to succeed this school year as they continually adapt to major changes. 2020 has been a difficult year for all of us, including our children as they adjust to these drastic changes and the uncertainty of the pandemic. Make sure you get them what they need with this list for back to school essentials!
1. LunchEAZE Cordless Heating Lunch Box
As cafeterias shut down and schools prohibit the use of communal microwaves, students will have no access to healthy and hot lunches. LunchEAZE is the only cordless heated lunch box that kids can use at school without having to need plugs! It’s easy to use even for kids, or you can set their mealtime for them so that their food is hot and ready right at lunch time.
2. Travel UV Sanitizing Wand
Kids may neglect hand sanitizers, often forgetting to use them while at school. But get them this cool UV sanitizing wand and they probably won’t stop waving it around! A high-tech sanitizing device shaped like a magic wand would get your kids to stay safe without sucking the fun out of it. This sanitizing wand kills 99.99% of germs, and for $79.99, it may be worth it to buy once instead of buying countless packages of hand sanitizer and wipes throughout the year.
3. Blue Light Glasses for Kids
Some schools are alternating between virtual and in-person classes. As kids spend more time on electronics for school, make sure their eyes are protected from blue light that is emitted from screens. Blue light may cause damage to the retina through extended use of electronics. Too much exposure to blue light can cause eye strain and lack of sleep so it’s imperative to keep your children’s eyes protected with blue light filtering glasses. Jonas Paul is one company that provides blue light glasses with or without prescription. They also offer try-on kits so that your child can try out different styles before selecting their perfect fit.
4. Crayola™ Kids Reusable Cloth Face Mask Set
Don’t forget masks! This Crayola branded face mask set makes it easy with a pack of 5, one for every day of the week to avoid cross contamination. Adjustable, machine-washable, and environmentally friendly, make sure your kids are protected with these cute and fun masks!
5. Kindle Paperwhite
Lighten the textbook load with the Kindle Paperwhite! If your child is lugging around heavy textbooks everyday, Kindle Paperwhite is worth the investment for $129. Digitally download textbooks and get unlimited access to countless books to encourage more reading for your children. The Kindle Paperwhite is waterproof, has enough storage for thousands of books, and a single charge lasts for weeks.
