SCHOOL STUFF FOR THIS YEAR FS2

This year as Princess Z starts her FS2 stage at her new big school.There were many more school items added on my list than last year.Down below are the things I bought for her this term:

UPixel Bag
This year we didn’t had to run around looking for a backpack.This pixel bag was given as a gift to Princess Z and she already had made up her mind to use it when she starts school.Everything is great about this bag from the colors to the space inside,the side pockets and specially how you can change the designs and get creative with the pixels on the front.

I went with the winged heart design👇🏻

Designs You Can Go For

The backpack comes with a packet of pixels and a guide on how to create the designs.But the pixels provided are not enough so you need to buy extra colored pixels packet available.

The Pixel Chips

The UPixel bag is available at Hamleys or you can order it online through Mumzworld👇🏻

YumBox
Princess Z will be taking the same lunch box this year as it’s her favorite and we couldn’t find a new one just like this (glowing ✨)in stores.One of the most convenient ones I came across and available in the market.This Bento lunch box is something I highly recommend.It comes build in with 4 compartments to give your child balanced and proportional meals.Something I have always wished for, not worrying about food getting mixed up together. Its totally leak proof ,very light weighted and easy to clean.Its also easy to open for those tiny hands 🙂 .The one main feature kids would love are the glow in the dark stars on the lid

The Glow In The Dark Stars ✨ Feature

I bought this one from DB babies store but there are many other designs available online at mumzworld or virgin megastore.

Eco-Vessel Bottle
Again like last year I thought of going with an insulated feature bottle .It was hard to find many designs in it but I am glad I visited Virgin Megastore and found it.This 30z (400ml) Eco-vessel water bottle fits in perfectly.They are easy to use.Keeping the water cool for max 8-10 hours is perfect.It has an easy drinking system. This bottle is just the right size and easy to carry.

School Shoes
I think this is one of the hardest things to buy in the school season.Running around shops trying on again and again to get the perfect comfort level,fitting and size.Alhamdulillah this year we didn’t had to run around much as we got what we wanted at Shoe Mart.We were looking out for shoes that Princess Z could wear/take off easily by herself at school.Something with no laces.We checked shops like Adidas and Nike but the shoes there were not satisfying.The best thing about the shoes we bought from Shoe Mart is that they are very light in weight and easy to wear,just like the way we wanted. 👍🏻
*Shoe Mart has the widest range of school shoes than any other shop at affordable prices if your still looking out for shoes.

White Sports Shoes AED 69/-
Minnie Mouse Black Shoes AED 139/-

*check out Shoe Mart at MOE (Mall of the Emirates) for more variety.

These are a few of the main school items I purchased this year.I will be adding a few more extra things on the list so stay tuned.

Wipe-Clean Books

Wipe-Clean Books

WIPE CLEANS BOOKS FROM BIRGIN MEGASTORE 

In her school these days Princess Z is learning how to write down her ABC’s and her name.Shes a fast learner but I know every child in the beginning have difficulties and struggle to hold the pencil the right way and it’s the same for Princess Z.

Her teacher has been telling her to practice once a week or twice (putting no pressure on her).As I know how bored she gets on doing the same thing for a long time 🙈🙊.I don’t know about others but Princess Z has a funny style of holding a pencil (like serial killers hold a knife wanting to stab someone 🤣).She even sometimes hold pencil with both hands (pretending to be Rajinikanth (south Indian superstar) to get work done quickly 😂.

I knew she needed a lot of practicing on the grip so that’s when I decided to order some books online.

A few days ago I had been through the Virgin Megastore website online and saw some books 📚 that would help Princess Z with her writing skills so since they were offering free delivery for a few days i took the opportunity to order online.Below are the books I bought

Wipe-Clean Pen Control

The first step to the basics of learning how to write.This was the book I wanted for Princess Z.Pen Control book is all about Simple and fun activities,such as tracing simple lines, shapes, drawings and much more.This wipe-clean book will definitely help her practice tracing and pen control skills, not only this it will help her improve her hand-coordination,fine motor and writing skills.The best part I love about this books is that once your done practicing just wipe and clean it off with a damp cloth and start all over again. 🙂.

To Start With….Simple Lines
Different Activities To Help Them Learn As Well As Have Fun

The second thing I ordered were the Wipe- Clean ABC Flash Cards.These are great to teach the basic of writing,and the formation of letters.Consisting of 28 alphabets,with each card being two-sided, both lower and upper case letter practicing.What other better way of learning.

Directions To Help Practice
A Great Way To Learn Upper and Lower Case Letters

The third and the last item I ordered was the Wipe-Clean 123 Number Flash Cards.These number cards are very good to improve her number skills as well as counting skills.Not only this,besides the 1-20,50, and 100 number flash cards there are a few other activities cards included in it (like counting food,how many?,dot to dot and many more).

Direction To start Off Practicing
Other Different Number Actitivites

The delivery does take 2-3 days and there’s a 25 AED delivery charge but it’s definitely hassle free.(No more struggle,driving around,searching and buying books.No matter how many times you practice on these Wipe-Clean books 📚 they will always stay brand new 😁.

Definitely a few must buy items to prepare the kids for their foundation stage.

SCHOOL ITEMS FOR FS1

Now that Zaara has started going to school. I though of sharing with you all the basic school items I bought for her.This is to help you out choose whats best and satisfy your kids needs. I might have taken time to decide but in the end it  was worth it.First item on the list is,

The Beatrix Dolce & Panna Ice-Cream School Bag

After looking around for quite a while I decide to go with this bag. I wanted something small but spacious at the same time and this fitted in perfectly 🙂 . The best part its light weighted and easy to carry around (not causing burden on those tiny shoulders). The best thing about these bags they super cute and adorable. Available in many other colors and design.I got mine from Db babies with Princess Z’s name engraved on it.

This Bento lunch box is something I highly recommend.It comes build in with 4 compartments to give your child balanced and proportional meals.Something I have always wished for, not worrying about food getting mixed up together. Its totally leak proof ,very light weighted and easy to clean.Its also easy to open for those tiny hands 🙂 .The one main feature kids would love are the glow in the dark stars on the lid.
