My favorite part of heading back to school was getting my new lunchbox ready and all my back-to-school essentials! My mom would buy me my Trapper Keepers and PeeChee folders, spiral notebooks and #2 pencils! But now, things have been kicked up a notch — and my girls get to peruse all the coolest creative things on the market online!

BACK TO SCHOOL ESSENTIALS
Here is a list of my fave back-to-school essentials I put together — things my children love and that bring them joy!
ART 2 THE EXTREME
These crayons are off the charts adorable! Nicole Lewis is the founder of Art 2 the Extreme – and she is a former elementary art teacher turned Etsy side hustler turned full-blown art entrepreneur. I can’t even handle how cute these crayons are – and they will get your little ones so amped for school and creativity!

And fun fact: Founder, Nicole Lewis was asked to create the wrap gift for the TV show, Queen Sugar (OWN Network) which is how she got started in the direction of custom designs, logos, party favors and molds in general. You never know how your entrepreneurial journey will kickstart! What an inspiration she is!
How ridiculously adorable and brilliant are these STEM-themed tableware from Colorfull Plates? Colorfull Plates is an amazing Black-owned business with a mission to drive children of all backgrounds to aim for their dreams – whether that’s to become an astronaut, a ballerina or a roboticist!
The best part is that Colorfull products are BPA-Free, non-toxic, dishwasher safe, oven safe, microwave safe, and made in America!
CELESTIAL SILK SCRUNCHIES
The 90s are back! And so are Scrunchies! Return to school with these adorable silk scrunchies which won’t tug at or break your hair! A touch of silk adds a little glam to your everyday school day – and if you’re anything like my older daughter, throw it around your wrist!

INSTEAD – CARD DECK FOR SCROLLING LESS
This deck is a perfect back-to-school tool. Staying focused and turned inward is one of the hardest parts of getting back into the school mindset. INSTEAD is a simple and affordable tool that offers bite-sized affirmations and activities as an alternative to the distraction of scrolling.
I’m so bummed to have left my copy of The Daily Stoic in my office (which I haven’t stepped foot in since March 2020!). These are bite-size affirmations that get you started for school, for work, for any moment your nerves are working against you. They also make the perfect addition to your coffee table!
INSTEAD is a Black woman-owned brand, manufactured in the USA, printed on sustainably sourced paper and affordably priced at $16 at Inner Workout!
