It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And no, it’s not Christmas…it’s back-to-school season! Say hello to the hours between nine and three, quieter middays and time to catch your breath because the kids are going to school – and some, for the first time. Take a look at Active Baby’s top picks for the back-to-school season and let’s prep your preschoolers and kindergarteners for a fun and busy school year.

Backpacks

For the animal lovers and future vets out there, take a look at the Skip Hop Zoo Packs, featuring the adorable spotted Dalmatian and happy fox. The mesh side pockets are perfect for sippy cups and the front pouch for snacks. 

The Out and About Arpenaz Kid Back Pack is perfect for the little explorers, as it is designed with a simple and practical rucksack pouch. 

Lunchgear

The Yumbox is perfect for those picky eaters; with five compartments highlighting the key food groups, there is plenty of space for a varietal lunch, including portions for those wetter foods like dips and yogurt.
