Kids Back to School?

2014_GoHenry_London_0837v1

Starting a new school year is usually a time of great excitement, for our kids anyway. For parents, we have to go through the dreaded checklist of the back to school essentials making sure that our children are fully set up and prepared for the new school year, and will be returning armed and ready with all the school equipment they could possibly need.

We know that our goHenry parents have been frantically searching for anything that they may have missed when doing the supplies for school shopping, trying to find the balance between educational supplies and school gadgets. We have now created a list of the essential back to school supplies, that we think will help take some of the stress out of the shopping for the new school year. Download our back to school checklist or scroll below to read our list of essential school supplies.

  • School Uniform - preparing for the inevitable growth spurts!

  • School Shoes - as kids seem to go through them like they’re going out of fashion

  • Backpack - big enough to fit all the back to school supplies

  • Lunch box/bag - and a plastic drinks cup or container

  • Umbrella - we know to not let the sudden burst of sun fool us

  • Pencil case - with a few pens including red black and blue, and at least 2 different colour highlighters

  • Calculator - to save any head scratching

  • Folders - perhaps a folder per subject

  • A planner or organizer - for help with keeping up with homework

  • goHenry card - not only is this handy in case a packed lunch is forgotten, but it may even mean that your children buy all their school supplies themselves!

Some ground rules

Decide how much and how often children can spend. You can also toggle online spending, high street shops or ATM on or off. No debt or overdraft is possible, so no expensive mistakes. And blocking the card has never been easier: children can do it themselves quickly. Children can really spend safely and start saving by themselves.

Money confidence...

Takes minutes to setup,
lasts a lifetime
