And that’s a wrap, almost! Just one last week of school holidays to go until the kids return to the classroom for an exciting start to term 1. For most mums this final week is filled with school uniform fitting, ironing on labels, prepping the freezer with healthy school snacks and grabbing all the must-have stationery items from the shops.
Make sure to leave time for a visit to your local Smiggle store because that’s where you’re guaranteed to find the coolest ‘Back to School’ gear. Hip tip: There is no such thing as a ‘quick’ trip to Smiggle, believe me, I’ve tried! There is simply too much fabulous stuff to see, try, feel and smell and choosing favourites is no easy task.
This spacious Faves Hardtop Strap Lunchbox (RRP $32.95) is perfect for kindy, school, daycare or even just a day out. It has a handy (removable) shoulder strap and handle for easy carrying and two large zip compartments to hold lunch, snacks and fruit to last the day. The lunchbox lining is BPA free and food grade safe, so parents can rest assured that all meals are safe from nasty chemicals. Of course if you score an awesome lunchbag like this you’d hate to lose it, so don’t forget to fill out the name tag inside.
Whether you are creating a unique piece of art or just want to add a pop of colour to a boring homework assignment, these Smiggle Scented Bon Bon Highlighter Pens (RRP $9.95, 10-pack) are exactly what you need. Not only are they dual ended, giving you 20 different ways to brighten your day, they are also scented! I wonder if you’ll get extra points from your new teacher if he/she smells a yummy fragrance when doing the marking?
Mistakes happen to the best of us, and they’re certainly not something to get upset about with the Stax On Erasable Highlighters (RRP $5.95). This giant stack of highlighters measures almost a foot tall and features a range of bright fluro shades. If you’ve gone a little overboard on colour you can erase your work with the magic eraser tip, easy as pie. Alternatively it adds a unique touch to an art project too, using colours as the background and making your drawing stand out in white.
