Back-To-School With The Disney Store

*Sponsored Post

I’ll admit that I’m that mom rejoicing for back-to-school. You should have seen me kick my heels and dance around the store once they brought out the school supplies! My kids love school and get super bored during the summer, even when I’m keeping them busy. Last year we purchased the best backpacks from The Disney Store, so we knew that’s where we’d like to get this year’s as well. We are a huge Disney family and love to watch all the classics over and over again. The toddler points out Mickey everywhere we go! So it was only fitting that we love visiting The Disney Store as well!

A huge thank you to The Disney Store for sending my kids their backpacks, lunchboxes, and water bottles for this school year! <3

In the video below, you’ll see the complete joy that my kids had as they opened their new backpacks and lunchboxes! We were all getting a little anxious for getting ready for back-to-school, but once we received their backpacks, we all got a little excited and less nervous! They knew they were coming and they were super excited when the box came! (I was happy because they stopped asking me to check the tracking number!) They couldn’t wait for me to even do the dishes, so there’s dirty dishes in the background and we’re sitting on the kitchen floor. Real life.

These backpacks and lunchboxes are perfect for kids and we already know how well they hold up! If a backpack can survive being dragged on the sidewalk everyday after preschool, it can handle just about anything! 😉 Aubrey chose the Rapunzel collection and Baileigh chose the Minnie Mouse collection. I wasn’t surprised with either of their choices, to be honest. The colors are so vibrant in both of these collections- they just make you happy when you look at them!

We love that the lunchboxes are big enough to hold their lunches and morning snack but not so big that it would be difficult for a kindergartner to carry. The girls got such a hoot out of the “purse straps” on them and love to wear their lunchboxes like a purse on their way to the lunchroom. The straps can also come un-clipped in case that’s not a feature your child adores like mine.

If you’re still searching for the very best backpack for your little ones to take back-to-school, daycare, or overnight trips to grandma’s- look no further than The Disney Store. Spider-Man, Frozen, Cars 3, Avengers, Ariel, Star Wars, Mickey- these are just a few options! With so many collections, there’s something for everyone!

And can we just talk about the fact that this kid just entered First Grade?! Seriously? Where does the time go?!

Proud Mommy Moment!!

My grandparents bought Aubrey a Preschool workbook (amongst many other things) for Christmas this year. Since Aubrey stays home with me, she doesn’t get much “school” time. Yesterday, I decided to try and “play” school with her and see how well she’d do during sing a long time, and sitting down for “work” time. And what she did after that, amazed me! We color… often. Crayons, pencils, pens, markers, chalk…. You name it. She’s colored with it. She’s mastered drawing “people”…. Or what kind of looks like people: a circle with eyes and a mouth, a few lines from the circle. It looks pretty good for a 3 year old drawing it, but we’ve never worked on tracing things. Anyways, we got out the preschool workbook and the first pages were of those easy mazes: get the bee from here to the flower. Super simple. But she amazed me at how well she did! We did a few of those and then they asked her to draw a line from top to bottom. Again, easy, but she had never done it before and was doing it like a pro. After that, they asked her to trace letters to spell out colors. We did Red and Orange. She did AMAZING!!!!! For a child that had never done that before, she was a pro. She would get all happy and excited and let out a big squeal every time she completed one of the letters. After we did those, I thought maybe I would write her name on a piece of computer paper and have her trace that. The picture above was our result. For a little girl that learned how to trace things THAT day… I am just so proud of her! I don’t want to say that I doubted her, because that’s totally not the right word! But I honestly didn’t think she was ready. And she proved me wrong! As soon as she woke up today, she grabbed her workbook and asked if we could play “school” and write our words. So guess what we’re about to do?? 🙂

At what age did your little one start tracing? Are they in a school type setting like daycare or in preschool?? 🙂
