The countdown is on until your child goes back to school and starts their new academic year. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, it’s weeks away before they go back. Trust me when I say it'll feel like you've just blinked and it’ll come around.
Especially, as it's ALMOST August already, where has 2021 gone? It might as well be Christmas at this rate. Let's not think about that and just focus on going back to school with the best stationery sets for kids.
Gone are the days at nursery when your little one would get to experiment with finger paints, take naps and run around in the play area. Now they’re sat in their very own seat, learning everything from handwriting skills, how to count and read.
Kids learn all sorts at school, including life skills as simple as tying your shoe laces (with the help from a wooden shoe) or making new friends.
You won’t need a wooden shoe to help them with their lessons, though. You'll just need to make sure your child is prepared for being in the classroom by buying essentials like pens and pencils.
If you’re not quite sure what you need to fill your little ones’ pencil cases, then I’ve found the best stationery sets for kids.
Just don’t draw a line under purchasing anything before you take a look.

STABILO EASYgraph Pastel HB Handwriting Pencils
