Disclosure: I am part of the PTPA Back to School Brand Ambassador Program with Sphero, Lyve and Rich Products. I received compensation as part of my affiliation with this group. The opinions on this blog are my own.
I can’t be the only one who dreads back to school, right? With stacks and stacks of forms to fill out for each child, checks to cut, new schedules to adapt to, and all the expectations of the first day/week/month of school, life as a mom of grade schoolers can be exhausting.
This year, though, I had a secret weapon in my back to school prep. With 18 pages of tips, tricks, products, articles, and giveaways, the PTPA Back to School Guide has become my blueprint for surviving the month of September. It covers everything from morning routines and breakfast ideas to anti-bullying and money handling tips for kids, and showcases some of my absolute favorite PTPA winning products that are perfect for back to school.
Speaking of awesome parent-tested products, here are my three top picks for surviving back to school with little ones. One product is for the kids, one is for us parents, and one is definitely for all of us... but they all are perfect for easing into our new routines.
