Back-to-School List: Your Ultimate Guide

The first day back at school. What a whirlwind of emotions!

Happiness at seeing old friends, sadness at the thought of no more holidays and a big dollop of excitement (with more than a touch of nerves) for all that lies ahead…

And it’s a challenging time for us parents or guardians, too! Every year there seems to be more and more to remember in order to get kids ready before the first bell rings.

But don’t worry. We’ve made it easy for you to get prepared with this ultimate back-to-school guide, which will feature a checklist of everything your child will ever need to have their best school year yet!

We also explore why rewards are an important addition to any back-to-school list and have hand-picked a few sets that are perfect as after-school treats… Aren’t we nice?

Our back-to-school list

1) Pens

If the pen is mightier than the sword, then this 12-pack of gel pens must be mightier than… erm… twelve swords?

2) Pencils

Let us help you keep your kids’ pencils sharp and their mistakes short-lived…

And if you’re wondering where on earth all those new pens, pencils and school supplies might fit on your child’s desk… yep! We have you covered there as well!

3) Textbooks

Your kids’ school will do a better job than us at guiding you as to which textbooks they need. But surely no school on earth can do a better job than we can at helping you store them?! Just look at these gorgeous oak book racks!

4) Notebooks

While a school will provide the textbooks, when it comes to standard notebook paper, you aren’t going to get any more stylish than our studded notepad designs! Perfect for kids scribbling down their next ingenious creative idea (all while concentrating in their classes, of course…)

5) Backpack

It’s more than a place for kids to store their books. It’s a way for them to express their personality. So if your little ones have bricks on the brain, our LEGO® backpack will get them practically sprinting back to school to share it with their friends.

6) Lunch box

We all learn best when our bellies are full... Here’s our way of packing a little extra fun into their lunchtime!

7) Water bottle

You’re never too early to learn the benefits of staying hydrated!

8) After-school treats

It’s a big adjustment for kids who have been doing some hard-earned chilling in the holidays to go back to a classroom. And it can be a challenge. But the best way you can help them quickly readjust to the school routine is by focusing on their free time.

Now that school has started up again, encouraging them to engage in creative LEGO play in the evenings can be a great way to keep their minds focused and active, all in the most enjoyable way possible. It’s been proven that play is one of the most powerful ways kids learn things, so keeping them in a learning, joyful mindset at home is a great way to help them stay attentive and receptive in school.

These open-ended, creative sets are the perfect ones to help with that, given that they are designed to maximize replayability and require just the right amount of brainpower in their building. Like our 3-in-1 sets, which triple the challenging, creative fun in one neat package!

We’re also of the opinion that kids deserve a reward for focusing back on their studies after the holidays. Now, you may be thinking, is this article being written by 3 kids in a trench-coat who have managed to get a job as a copywriter at the LEGO Group? We couldn’t possibly comment.

But treating kids to a bit of LEGO play after school can be the perfect way to reward important achievements at school – or especially to help them leave a bad day behind.

We know that the best after-school treat is one that best suits their interests. Luckily for you (and very lucky for them…) we have LEGO sets to match anything the heart desires, from ninjas to deep sea diving to vehicles!

Happy learning!
