Back to school - $100 Stuck on you { Giveaway }

There has been much excitement in the air moving into Year 2 (their 3rd school yr in NSW).

Taken this morning - hard to get him to smile for camera when I ask him to.
All 4 twin sets in our school were separated this year. My twins had the same teacher for kindy and yr1 , now they have two new teachers and are in different classes, with lots of different kids - I am glad they have settled in well because I'm off to Sydney Friday for Paddling and then staying for my surgery next week.

Mum will be taking over the reins and I feel very blessed she can do this, so my husband can be with me. I am sure she will 'whip them' into shape without needing a whip ;).

'Stuck on you' understand the importance of finding quality items for children that withstand the rigorous wear our kids throw at them and help misplaced items find their way back. Our original matching pencil cases [used for home readers] are still in excellent condition after 18 months usage.

The lid is a ruler too.

This year the boys were so excited to choose the wooden pencil boxes and we got new Large pocket pencil cases in red and blue for their classroom stationery items.

Homework time is now routine and more organised with a Homework Pencil box from Stuck on You® .There are always pencils on hand and when the boys are finished , they have an awesome box to store their pencils neatly...no more fighting - HE took my pencil & I used it first yesterday &it's got my germs on it !

Last year we used high quality personalised kids backpacks from Stuck on You .

Sam has a new Stuck on you bag- with multiple pockets and 4 separate zipped up areas plus 'net' drink pocket and a side zip pocket. [Joel is using the second of new identical bags given to both boys last year because it was what he wanted- and to be different to Sam]

Over the years I've learned how valuable multiple pockets are.They can save a lot of stress and help stop kids dumping the contents of the bag on the floor searching for something.

They both wanted Superhero
My boys try to keep notes for me or notes for their teacher in the front pockets ; lunch bags in wide back section and other gear / homework book/folders etc in the middle pockets. Easier said than done un-crumpled notes are rare .

Stuck On You kids backpacks are made from durable poly canvas and are fully lined. As are the pencil cases.I love the easy to use website and that you can preview how the bag /design will look with your children !

There is a choice of three colours (Navy, Pink and Red) and lots of image choices - they suit any child's interest...except for Joel who really wanted a Green backpack.

So nothing gets left behind at school and the poor teacher knows which identical lunchboxes belong to Tom, Dick and Harry and it magically finds it's way back to your child. Stuck on you packs are very generous , so we still had plenty of labels

Stuck on you's  range has expanded incredibly over the years if you haven't checked their website lately- go do it now ...I'll wait. Personalise it all to match as well ...pencil cases,lunchboxes and school bags.

As well as labels you can order personalized clothes , puzzles , sports & library bags, rolling wheelie bags, home essentials and even personalised party items.

My favourite product ideas are
  • Backpack
  • Lunch Pack (drink bottle and/or lunchbox) 
  • Value Pack – with combo of labels and a Bag Tag
  • Stationery – Homework pencils Tools for School (Large Pencil Case, eraser, scissors, pens, pencils, markers all personalised)
