Products For Back To School
Updated on 18 August 2021

It seems like only yesterday that schools closed for the summer and we were thinking of what to do with our children to keep them active and occupied, but now our thoughts have turned to preparing them for the return to the classroom, and Back To School season is well and truly upon us.

Since the start of the pandemic, where students had to move to an online format, the usual requirements for schools changed. With more students getting ready for in-person classes, this year's Back To School season is a special one. With a wide variety of sales and deals available to help you ready your children for school, here are some essentials to make sure they and you are ready for classes to start.

Face Masks

Although schools have resumed in person, the pandemic is still with us and taking precautions is the biggest necessity to ensure children are safe at schools with face masks made mandatory for children to wear. The disposable kids face masks from Carrefour are great to protect your children against germs, are a fun take on masks with the different animal prints and are sure to be a hit with the kids.

Backpacks

With going back to school, backpacks are an absolute staple to carry a snack, books, stationery and more. The Kipling backpack from Jashanmal is a great go-to and a perfect everyday bag. With various pockets for storing as well a separate compartment to hold a tablet, it is the perfect option.

Shoes

When reuniting with friends, the excitement of catching up on lost time by running around and playing fun games will definitely ensure. Reebok is gearing children with amazing shoes that are sure to last through all the fun and excitement. When shopping the back to school collection till 30 August, shoppers will get Dhs 100 back on a shopping spree of over Dhs 300.

Lunch Boxes

At home, the kitchen is a quick run to get a snack but with in-person classes, lunches are the way to go to get your daily nutrients in during a long day of fun and learning. Pottery Barn Kids is offering a variety of lunch boxes, with various themes cases including glow in the dark and Toy Story for the kids to enjoy while they eat their food.

Water Bottle

Water bottles are a daily necessity as it helps us stay hydrated. With moving away from plastics and trying to be more eco friendly, hydro flasks have been all the rage. Eggs and Soldiers are also known for their sustainability and are currently offering families the opportunity to hand in old school supplies that kids have outgrown and are also in working condition, that will then go to local families in need. Families handing in old items will get a Dhs 20 gift voucher redeemable when shopping for school supplies.

iPad

With the pandemic, technology has been vital from daily classes to hosting fun activities for kids. Despite most children being in the classroom, some students are opting for online classes and require electronics to help attend classes. An iPad is a great device that can help a child with projects, taking notes and can also double as a laptop when a Bluetooth keyboard is attached.

Stationery

Stationery is essential for back to school. From writing notes to projects and homework, stationery is a basic need when going back to school. With a multitude of options available from highlighters, pens, markers and more, it is a great tool to always have on hand.
