Back-to-School COOL As Seen On Lifestyle Today

As September rolls around, moms are looking for must-haves to make back to school COOL for their kiddos. I’ve got you covered with some great picks I shared on Lifestyle Today.

Watch the Segment:

Keeping connected

I was wowed when I found out about this one. It’s called TickTalk and it’s the safest kids’ smartwatch phone out there. This gadget has all the positives of a cell phone WITHOUT the distractions of the internet, games or social media.

So how does it work? Well, TickTalk is an advanced 4G/LTE children’s smartwatch phone that combines video and voice calling, in-app messaging + location tracking. You can know your child is safe with the emergency SOS and 911 response features as well as more than 20 parental controls. It even lets you approve your child’s contacts and block unknown numbers through the parent app.

I also love the affordability and simplicity. TickTalk includes a free SIM card for an affordable, pay-as-you-go no-contract plan starting at $9.99 per month.

Put a label on it

We moms know that labeling is a must to keep your kids’ belongings out of the lost and found. Luckily, Mabel’s Labels back-to-school collection has you covered. Mabel’s Labels is the best-known brand of  labels for families and offers new, on-trend designs for kids of all ages. This company truly has a label for every need- from stick-on or iron-on clothing labels, to shoe labels, to versatile name stamps and even allergy and medical alert products.

These labels are extremely durable and 100% guaranteed. They’re laundry, dishwasher and microwave safe.

I also love that this is a mom-founded brand that gives back- partnering with schools around the country for fundraising projects.

Clean hands club

Handzies Soap + Water Wipes have become a staple in our house. As we head back to school these will be in every one of my kids’ backpacks, lunchboxes, sports bags and the car of course.

Handzies can give your kids soap and water clean hands anywhere this school year because these are made with only natural castile soap, water and essential oils. Gentle on even little hands, Handzies are free from alcohol, BZK, triclosan, and artificial perfumes or dyes.

My favorite things about these is how they come individually packaged, making these perfect to stash in bags for an on-the-go clean.
