We have done a post about back-to-school shopping for college-aged students and a general back to school clothing post. At Urban Thrift, you can also find all kinds of back-to-school items for your little ones in elementary and middle school. In addition to the clothes outlined in our Back To School Clothing post, you can find numerous supplies fthat we carry specifically for the younger age-set.
We all know that making healthy snacks and treats for kids that are also delicious can be a challenge. The multitude of cookbooks–many geared towards cooking for kids or families–will be sure to give you some extra ideas that will please even the pickiest eaters. Plus, if your little ones are learning to help put together their own lunches, there are even cookbooks geared specifically towards kids. You can pick up cake pans, muffin tins, and other items to make your own version of baked goods. We also have smoothie makers and food processors for under ten dollars, which make it even easier to make healthy snacks. When it comes to storing sandwiches and toting lunches to school, we’ve got you covered there, too. We have lunch boxes ranging from cute Disney ones to the durable Swiss Army kind, as well as both new and gently used Tupperware, Rubbermaid, and Ziplock containers. We have thermoses to keep food hot and ice packs and insulated cups to keep things like vegetables or juice boxes cold.
We also have many different kinds and sizes of backpacks and gym bags, that are perfect for carrying books to and from school, and sturdy enough to be taking on field trips as well.
We also have many of the supplies students may need in the classroom, from brand new art supplies, pencil cases, math sets, regular and scientific calculators, and finally binders already filled with looseleaf. You can also stock up on books, LeapFrog games, as well as educational board games, video games and activity books.
If you want your little one prepared for any kind of weather? We’ve recently put out our selection of fall and winter coats, boots, and hats.
Come in and get a head start on back-to-school shopping. You’ll definitely cross several items off your list and find some great deals.
