Back to school shopping as a mom of all girls means we are in constant motion to find the cutest, the hippest, the brightest, and the sparkliest shoes, clothing, and gear stores have to offer. As a self-proclaimed “dress yourself to express yourself” mom, my girls often look like they spent some time in a Frozen-themed glitter factory. And most days, I don’t mind that. But this is the first year that everyone will be in some type of “school” (big kid school and preschool), and I feel like I need to step up my game in the back to school arena. Don’t get me wrong – they will still be rocking dinosaur dresses and cowgirl boots with a bright pink backpack – but at least they will have some of the coolest gear around.

Kids all across the country are beginning to board school buses, get into their carpools and gear up for another school year full of fun and learning. It doesn’t matter if your kids start school after Labor Day or if they started a few weeks ago, it is certain that you have a list of items that you need to be well prepared for the upcoming months. This school year, make Target your one stop shopping center for all of your back to school needs. From school supplies to classroom must haves as well as all you need to create your homework station, your arsenal of school snacks and healthy foods, and your secret stash of germ fighters to help keep your little ones free from all the illnesses schools seem to attract – this superstore has it all.
If you ask any kid what their favorite new items to get when school time comes, new backpacks and lunch boxes will top the list! All kids love showing off their backpacks to their friends on the first day of school and “Oooooh check out that cool lunch box!! Where did you get it?” is a hot conversation in the lunch room. As most seasoned moms of school-aged kids know, certain backpacks and lunch boxes may look fun and have your child’s favorite character on them, but often these bags will NOT last the school year. Constantly taking books and binders in and out of bags wears on the pockets, zippers and bottoms of bags and many a parent that has been suckered into buying one of these cheaper bags, often are buying a new one mid-way through the school year. This year, we have gathered some pretty awesome looking backpacks and lunch boxes that not only are super cute, but are made with quality and safe materials that will last through out the school year! These backpacks and lunch boxes are great for not only school time but for any time! They are so well made, you kids will be begging you to take them to sleepovers, to their sports activities or even just to tote all of their gear to visit a friend.
Whether your child is staying with your mother-in-law, at a daycare, or is in school, you want him to have the healthiest lunch possible.

Here are some helpful tips for packing lunches that are not only healthy, but good for the environment as well.
