12. Itzy Ritzy Travel Happens Sealed Wet Bag with Handle

Whether your kid lights up at the thought of going to PE class or immediately tries to think of a reason to dash to the nurse’s office, they will more than likely have a heap of smelly gym clothes at the end of the week. Keep the smell contained with these waterproof wet/dry bags that can be stashed in their school locker.

13. iEGrow USB Touch LED Desk Lamp

Your kid's won't beleaf that this plant look-alike is a desk lamp. Make learning about photosynthesis and Earth science extra fun while also shining the perfect amount of light for your little students when they are up late completing that project they procrastinated on.

Everyone needs a little reminder that they are on the right track. We love the inspirational quotes on these rainbow pencils. Your child will appreciate the bump in confidence, too! As a side note, these pencils are totally Insta-ready, which your kid will absolutely love.

15. Scratch-off Lunchbox Notes

OK, so this is more of a mum or teacher must-have — however, we are obsessed with these scratch-off lunch notes! Kids will love the anticipation each day, and you can write words of encouragement if they're having a rough week. Stick them in a notebook or hide one in their desk for when they need a midweek pick-me-up.
