School is (almost) in session. Actually, depending on where you live, the learning may have already begun. This school year is undoubtedly like no other we’ve experienced. Some kids are learning from home, others are returning to the classroom. Many of us are playing the part of parent and teacher, while other moms and dads are excited to get their kids out of the house for the first time in months.

Whatever your plans, it’s time to stock up on some supplies. One thing you should get regardless of whether the kids are sitting at the kitchen table or a classroom desk: a new backpack.

Hear me out, homeschoolers. 

There’s something so rewarding and exciting about selecting your new backpack for a whole year of learning. It’s a tradition, and it gets little ones excited about the adventure ahead. (Plus, you can always use it for sleepovers at grandma’s house.)
