The summer days have seemed to fly by. Just like most New York City school kids, my daughter will begin the 2018-2019 school year in just one month. One. Month. Let that sink in. That means we have to bring out that laundry list of school supplies to ensure the kids are prepared for the new school year. School supply trends have changed over the years too. Just recently, I attended, with my soon-to-be 2nd grader, the Momtrends Back to School Bash where the latest back to school products and snacks were showcased.

Put Their Name On It With Mabel’s Labels

Kids are notorious for misplacing their things. That can be prevented by labeling their personal items with cute name labels. We swear by Mabel’s Labels because they are durable and come in cute and fun designs. They’re available in various shapes and sizes to fit a variety of your kid’s items like water bottles, backpacks, notebooks, pencil cases, lunchboxes and more.

My daughter loves mermaids so we have a set of those. Now, we just need to get the matching mermaid bookbag and lunchbox.

Colorful & Eco-friendly Printing

One of the products that impressed me the most at the Momtrends Back to School Bash was the cartridge-free Epson Expression ET-2750 EcoTank printer. Although I am no longer the PTA Co-President at my daughter’s school, I did sign up to be the Class Parent, and printing makes up a majority of the responsibilities for that role. The EcoTank printer will allow me to print beautiful full-color cards, flyers, activity sheets and more for my daughter’s 2nd-grade class. I love that it comes with up to two years of ink. So no more spending money on expensive cartridges.

Avery® Adds Color & Fun

First of all, Avery® is a staple in my household. I use their products to make my labels for holiday gifts, address labels, and more. These days, they are offering some really cute and inspirational binders, binder dividers through the Avery® and Amy Tangerine® Collection. I love everything about the collection because it provides kids with the inspiration they need throughout the school day. To be honest, I do not remember my school supplies ever being this cool, colorful and fun.

Snacktime Made Easy With Stonyfield Organic

Lunches and snacks are two things my husband and I dread preparing during the school year. Why? Becuase our daughter is picky. She is not only picky, she has specific things she likes, and then one day she no longer likes them. But one thing we know she loves is yogurt. Stonyfield Organic offers a variety of yogurt products from drinkables to pouches, and soon kids will be able to indulge in their snack packs. The snack pack provides a combination of yogurt with a crunchy snack like a pretzel or graham cracker. My daughter seemed to love it.

Back to School In Style

The Momtrends Back to School Bash is not complete without their fashion shows showcasing trendy and functional clothing for kids. We loved the Tea Collection clothing. They have really cute shirts, dresses, and leggings up to size 8 (select sizes up to size 12). My daughter lives in leggings and dresses so their clothing selection is perfect for her.
