Making School More Colorful & Fun: A Happy School Year With Amazon


Happy School Year With Amazon

Have you started back-to-shopping? Summer vacation flies by when you’re having fun, and my years of parenting taught me the importance of starting early and taking advantage of great deals. Next school year is an exciting one for all my children because my two older kids are starting a brand new school and my younger son is starting preschool. This means I need to prepare for 3 kids in different age groups conveniently and efficiently. 

Luckily we teamed up with Amazon to help us celebrate the start of the school year by thinking of it as an opportunity for a fresh start and a clean slate, like New Year’s Eve for kids. That’s why we set School Year’s Resolutions – goals to help my kids have a Happy School Year.


In preparation of a new school year at a brand new school, I interviewed my daughter about her School Year’s Resolutions. 

My daughter’s School Year’s resolutions are:

  • Make learning positive and fun.
  • Try new things to help with creativity!

One of her School Year’s Resolutions is to make learning more positive and fun – and to try new things to help with creativity. Tess is quite the artist and was accepted to an arts school that’ll help her unleash her creativity in addition to academics. Therefore this year, I’ll be choosing school supplies that are fun, bold and colorful and that will allow her to express herself more freely.

Benefits of Happy School Year shopping on Amazon

Amazon is a one-stop-shop for Happy School Year shopping needs. Like many busy parents out there, I love shopping on Amazon because it saves me time, money and everything is delivered right to my door. Because let’s face it – who has the time to drive to the store every time a child needs something for school? 

Shopping on Amazon means less driving, less headache, less mental load and more free time with my family. Personally, I love the fact that there are more choices for larger sized products compared to local retail stores which saves money and time for big families like ours.

The best part? There’s something for every child regardless of their age, preference and style, right at my fingertips. No more driving from one store to the next trying to find that right product for each of my kids! 

Some of my favorite Amazon picks
