Cute School Supplies For Girls

By Edited May 28, 2015 0 0

It's nearing September and it's that time again to raid the shops and buy lots of cute back to school supplies for your girls. But what to buy? And what to avoid? Do you follow the latest trends or do you go for the more boring but sturdy items? This article will give you some useful tips on buying cute school supplies for girls.

What to look out for when buying school supplies?

The backpack is so important to get right as it is always on display.

When buying a backpack your first consideration should be practicality. Choose a backpack which is the right size and make sure it has at least 1 divider. This will help keep their lunch, folders and other school supplies clearly organised. For primary school girls, choose a backpack which will last them through their primary school years, stay clear from pictures on their backpack and go for vibrant colours instead.

Let's face it, a plastic lunchbox will hardly ever look cool

or cute. There are however some cute alternatives. I would thoroughly recommend a bento box. You can put a large variety of food in it, all separated, and it stacks up to a pretty cool box too. Now I realise a bento box isn't for everyone, for those who prefer to have a simple, ordinary lunch box or even to wrap their lunch in aluminium foil, I would recommend a cute lunch tote. Most lunch totes are insulated, keeping your girl's food fresh for longer and they come in very cute designs. Choices are endless when it comes to lunch totes but be sure to choose one with vibrant colours.

supplies. It should be long-lasting and be of your daughter's liking. There are so many different pencil cases to choose from, there's bound to be something for everyone. For a girly girl, you could go with shades of pink. However, pink isn't to everyone's taste and there are many cute pencil cases out there that aren't pink at all. My preference goes out to PP pencil cases which are made of very durable transparent plastic and come in a variety of cute colour. Alternatively, these black pencil cases are also really cute and good for the environment too as they are made of recycled car tyres.

Pens and pencils

So now we've got all the basic school supplies, it's time to

splash out on those super cute smaller items such as pens and pencils, erasers and sharpeners. Where before we had to be sure to choose items which were sturdy and hard-wearing, these smaller items aren't meant to last for years and therefore we can let our choice be more decided by the item's looks. These items are also easier and cheaper to replace when your daughter grows tired of them so I'd suggest to let her make up her own mind. My favourites at the moment are these cute Swimmer kawaii pencils. They come in a variety of bright colours and come with a charm attached to the back which is a cute little bonus. 

For pens, follow the advise from the school first. I remember when I went to school, my school insisted on using fountain pens. I would say they're not the easiest for young girls so if the school doesn't insist on it, I'd suggest going with ballpoint pens. Either way, choose a pen which is brightly coloured as this will be more appealing. I'd stay clear of sparkly gel pens for now. Although they are very cute, they won't be allowed to be used for tests and coursework and it may make notes difficult to read.

Pencil sharpeners and erasers

Pencil sharpeners come in many shapes and sizes. Make sure to get

one that is suitable for your daughter's pencils (sizes may vary sometimes) and which has a container to collect the shavings. This will avoid the shavings going all over the place while the eraser is being used. There are a large number of designs ranging from the plain to the very cute. This dog pencil sharpeners is just one example of a cute pencil sharpener. You put the pencil through his mouth and turn the tail to sharpen the pencil. While sharpening, the ears go up and down as well.

Erasers come in even more sizes and shapes than pencil

Cute erasers
sharpeners. They range from sushi and cakes to penguins and toothbrushes. Possibilities are endless. Personally, I'd stay clear from any erasers that resemble foods. Purely because they may be mistaken for food, maybe by a younger brother or sister, and accidentally eaten.Anything else goes though. Especially 3D animal erasers are really cute, especially these duck and frog ones. I've spotted some 3D penguin erasers as well which are equally cute.
