With school approaching fast, I thought I’d focus this blog on some stationery bits and bobs that will bring joy to your child and envy to all their friends! Unlike uniforms, books etc, school stationery doesn’t have to cost a lot. Most of the items listed below cost less than €3.
If you’re getting lipsticks for your pencil cases, why not get some nail polish too! These highlighter pens look like bottles of nail varnish. You get two per pack.
If your child likes writing messages but doesn’t want the teacher to be able to read them, then these secret ink pens are the biz! They have invisible ink which can only be viewed using the UV light built into the lid of the pen.
While we’re on the topic of passing notes, how cute are these postit notes for sending messages to friends on. Choose between the bear ones or ones that look like ice-pops. If you like bigger books of sticky notes, I stock two lovely books – Rainbows Make Me Smile, and I Love Unicorns.
If you need to bring markers into school and your school doesn’t provide them, then these magic ones are sure to make all the other children jealous, There’s 9 different coloured felt tip pens and one white one, which when used over the colours, change them to completely different colours.
It can be fun to swap stickers or just decorate school books and pencil cases with them. This is a set of 200 emoji stickers.
These Scratch and Sniff Stickers are also great for swapping among friends.
If your child loves art and craft lessons then they will be able to make even more impressive crafts with these zigzag scissors. It comes with 3 sets of scissors with different shaped blades (zigzag, wavy)
These pens are super cute but when you lean on the nib to write, the heart at the top lights up! Cool
Finally, if you want something big and impressive, you won’t get a better set of colours than the Djeco Big Box of Colours!
I hope this blog has given you some ideas on how to liven up your child’s pencil case this school year. If you haven’t found what you want or you want more ideas, you can find my full range of stationery here.
Or, if you are buying for younger children and these items are just too advanced for them, you can find a list of stationary for pre-school aged children (and older) in my last blog
Now, enjoy these last few weeks of not having to make school lunches and help with homework!
