    Moonpreneur

    Ah, back to school time! It’s that magical time of the year when kids trade in their swimsuits for backpacks, and parents brace themselves for the daunting task of finding the best back-to-school supply list on the internet. With so many options, it can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. But fear not! 

    We’ve assembled an extensive list to help you sort through the chaos and find the coolest, most practical supplies. This list covers everything from a backpack sturdy enough to carry a small elephant, a lunchbox that can withstand the nuclear winter, and hygiene supplies to keep our little monks healthy. What more? We’ve even thrown in a few surprises along the way.

    The Back-to-School Shopping List for Parents 2023

    Elementary School

    The elementary school typically spans from kindergarten to fifth or sixth grade. During this time, students are introduced to various subjects, including reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and physical education. 

    This is also when school gives special attention to social and emotional development in children. Hence, the back-to-school supply list should be able to meet all the needs of the children as they continue through their exploration journey.
