Do you have kids that are just about to start school  Here are some tips for back to school shopping for kids

Conversation starters

One thing a lot of parents worry about is the branding on clothing. at first I was against these, but after I bought a couple, I saw how much fun they had. They actually become the characters on these shirts. For back to school, they're amazing, especially when kids are in a new school or new classes with new classmates. These will become a talking point. If they're wearing one of these shirts, maybe another child will come up to them and say, "Hi, I play with those toys. My name is James.” and then they'll connect with each other.

Find outfits that are going to work for them at school and play, indoor and outdoor

Involve your kids

Some kids would wear a Spiderman outfit every day if you let them.  Kids need to be involved because you actually need them to wear the clothes.
Give them some limited choices. For example, pick three shirt and ask which one they  would like the most, or their what are their favorite colors. Doing this will help make the morning go smooth.

Invest in footwear

Footwear is a really good investment for your kids. You want to look for shoes that are offering really good support. If they're indoor shoes, make sure that they're not going to scuff the surface. Most parents are buying at least two pairs of shoes for their kids -  indoor shoes, outdoor shoes.
