What child isn't proud to carry their little school bag on their shoulders to join their buddies in the school classroom? The kindergarten schoolbag is an essential in the life of a child who is about to go to school. In fact, it is the first purchase that we make for the start of the school year, whether it is to go to the nursery or to kindergarten. It is in this bag that all the essentials of your child will be stored to spend his day at school. At Milinane, we love practical but also trendy accessories! That's why we've created a range of satchels with our four flagship designs, which won't go unnoticed in the playground: the iconic Tiger and Baby T-rex prints and our two new Puffin and Leopard designs.
Made from Oeko-Tex certified cotton canvas, our Archibald binder is crafted with great care and will withstand your toddler's many adventures. It is also machine washable at 30°C with an anti-fading wipe to preserve its pretty colors for many years.
What preschool satchel should I choose for my child?
In kindergarten, whether it's in early section, middle section or large section, you won't (yet) have heavy notebooks to carry around. There is absolutely no need to have a large bag or even a rolling schoolbag, it will take up more of your space than anything else. On the other hand, as early as the middle section, you can be asked to put a life notebook in it. This one, in order to be protected, will have to be slipped into the small schoolbag of your child. Thus, we recommend a minimum size of 32 x 28 x 23 cm from the middle section of kindergarten.
Knowing that your child will be required to carry his bag on his shoulders, refer you to a light schoolbag and therefore composed of natural material such as cotton or linen. It is important to pay attention to the quality of what you buy for yourself or for your children. Indeed, this kindergarten schoolbag will be worn every day. It must not contain any harmful substance. In this case, favor a certified natural material, and resistant.
It should also be comfortable enough for your child to feel at ease. Your child will grow with it, so consider getting a schoolbag with adjustable handles to extend the life of the bag. In order to store all of his little things, the preschool school bag should still be quite spacious.
Note also that if your child likes the schoolbag you choose, he or she will be more likely to carry it himself or herself, and especially not to forget it! Buy a bag with their favorite colors, or favorite patterns, like dinosaurs, tigers or birds or small flowers. Most of our prints are mixed, they are quite suitable for a kindergarten schoolbag for boys, but also for girls.
Finally, last but not least, turn to a machine washable schoolbag. And yes, this little bag is going to be carried everywhere 5 days out of 7, it will sometimes need a little bath!
What to put in the kindergarten schoolbag?
As we have already said, a large schoolbag is not necessary for these first years of school. It should still be large enough to hold:
- A complete change of clothes
- The necessary for the nap: comforter, pacifier
- A small snack
- A bottle of water
- A life notebook
Note: remember to mark your child's first name inside the kindergarten schoolbag as well as on their clothes to prevent them from losing them. You can sew or use a self-adhesive or iron-on label (Ludilabel).
