Shopping for a school backpack for the new school year can be one of the more fun parts of the process for kids to do when heading out to the stores. A backpack can show off their personal interests and give young children a fun way to carry all of their supplies.
Preschool and kindergarten backpacks are made for children ages 3-6 and make it easy for carrying items to and from school, daycare or even sleep overs at the grandparents house. In addition they are great for outings to the zoo, park or some other exciting escapades.
When deciding on the best preschool backpack several things should be considered. Most importantly, the preschool backpack should come with a large-teethed zipper, magnetic snap, simple drawstring, or velcro closure to make opening easy for little hands. Additionally, one should not overlook the need for a convenient handle for hanging the backpack up at school or at home on a hook. Thirdly, the backpack should have padded adjustable straps to provide a comfortable and appropriate fit.
When looking for a suitable backpack for your little one, consider customized versions that allow a unique and cute design and one that can be personalized with your child's name. Make sure they are constructed with reinforced seams and sturdy bottoms, and also that they are lined and washable, roomy enough for a change of clothes or special stuffed animal friend, along with being lightweight, indestructible, and not too big. Keeping in mind that your preschooler may have papers that come home, a handy size should accommodate at least 8.5 inches x 11 inches sized paper.
Most of all, consider cute fabric that meets your child's personality. Today, one can find numerous shades and fabrics that are durable and adorable. A side pocket and inside pockets are ideal for storing a water bottle or little treasures. Most children love to carry their own things with them, so one that resembles a big kids' pack is ideal. The right preschool or kindergarten backpack can be fun, functional, and perfect for the kid on the go whether to preschool or daycare or just out with mom or dad on a unique adventure.
