I know it probably feels like it’s lasted an eternity, but don’t worry, the school summer holidays are almost over and soon you’ll be back to leading a (slightly) less stressful life! Before your little ones head back to school, make sure you’re well stocked up on all those essential items. The last thing you want is to wake up on your child’s first day of term and realise you’ve forgotten to buy a piece of uniform or any pens or pencils! To make your life easier, why not print off the below checklist and stick it to your fridge? That way you’ll have a constant reminder of everything you need to get before the big day!

1. Stationery

No doubt your child will end up losing or having most of their stationery stolen within the first week, but sadly it all needs to be bought! After all, you don’t want your little one to go through the embarrassment of being the only one in class asking to borrow a pen off the teacher.
Here’s a mini list of everything you need to stuff in the pencil case:
Personalised Zip Pencil Case
  • A selection of biros (only blue or black ink)
  • Graded pencils (for artwork)
  • 30cm ruler
  • Eraser
  • Sharpener
  • Set squares
  • Protractor
  • Coloured pencil crayons
  • Pritt stick

Swim Bag2. Bags

For many kids, their bag is the most important school item. It gives them licence to express their personality and add a splash of colour and fun into their generic uniform. Here at 24studio, we stock a huge choice of bags for both boys and girls, from top brands such as Paul Frank, Dunlop and Lonsdale. And this year, we’re excited to offer a fun selection of swim bags, complete with a personalised towel and free towels!

3. Uniform

School Uniform
It goes without saying really, but the uniform should be one of the first things you purchase! Remember, kids have a tendency to ruin their uniforms rather quickly, be it by sliding around the school hall or falling over in the playground, so it’s always good to buy a few pairs of everything. Unsurprisingly, this is particularly more important for boys!

4. Iron-on Labels

Iron On Labels
Kids picking up the wrong coat or uniform or having somebody else pick up theirs is a common issue in every school! To combat this problem, putting labels with your child’s name on in every piece of their uniform. To make your life easier, our labels are iron-on so you don’t want have to fiddle about with a needle and thread. Plus, they can be personalised automatically online, so you don’t have to waste time writing the name in every single label!

5. Footwear

School Shoes
Whether you’re looking for trainers or football boots for physical lessons, or smart shoes for general lessons, we’ve got you covered at 24studio. As with their uniform, kids are prone to scuffing up and ruining their shoes before the first term has ended, so it might be worthwhile getting more than one pair!
