For your kids, the first day of school is probably one of the most anticipated days, rivaled only by Christmas or Hanukkah and their birthday or perhaps Halloween. For parents, it's a big milestone as well, one marked with a bit of relief that the kids are out of the house and a little sadness that their babies are getting older.
There are five steps to getting ready for the first day of school with Toys"R"Us...
Pick The Backpack
It all starts with the backpack, which will be a constant companion throughout the school year. Choose from favorite characters (Pokémon, Princess, Hatchimals and more) along with coordinating lunch kits, so your kids will be equipped for success.
Fill It Up
Once your kids have chosen their favorite backpack, you need to fill it up with everything they'll need to make this the best year ever. Remember when you were in school and there was nothing more fun than having new notebooks, packs of markers, boxes of crayons, and erasers!
Learn Through Play
Keeping your kids’ brains engaged throughout the year is important. Play time can be learning time, with toys that inspire a curiosity about the world around them.
Learn Through Creativity
Are your kids budding musicians, artists, actors, or writers? Then you need to make sure their creative side is being stimulated throughout the year, at school and at home! That starts with providing them with the toys and supplies they need to create their own masterpieces.
Now that you've gotten everything on your list, it's time to celebrate School Year's Eve! Throw a party for your family, have a special dinner, or create a keepsake that will be treasured for years to come.
