Finding the perfect kids backpacks doesn’t have to be stressful!

It feels like every year, we have to go to four different stores for all four backpacks. Each of my children simply can’t manage to all find their backpacks at one store.

This year, I’m going to make finding the perfect backpack for all of my children easy and fun! Looking forward to packages – or “presents?” – is one of my youngest’s favorite hobbies.

You can browse backpacks with your children online! The very best part of this is saving trips to the store.

While waiting for your delivery, make a backpack name tag together!
