All Things Back to School with Minted

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Minted. All opinions are honest & that of My 3 Little Kittens.

Back-to-school is here! My son is now a second grader! He was very excited to get back to the classroom and to see all his friends from first grade. My daughter doesn’t start Kindergarten until next week, but she is already planning what she will wear!

One fantastic way for them to share all the back-to-school happenings is with personalized stationary and thank you notes for kids from Minted!

Back to School

I love the idea of them using their own personalized stationary to write friends and family. It encourages penmanship and fun. Plus, who doesn’t just love adorable paper? My daughter would go nuts for the Thanks, Cupcake set. My son is all about dinosaurs, so the Dino Parade set would definitely be his favourite. To make it even more special, they can write to their teachers. A thank you note from a student is always a great way to brighten a teacher’s day!

Back to School Dinosaurs

Best of all, Minted has a large selection of back-to-school must haves including their day planners/notebooks. Considering how much paper my children go through after school, giving each of them a notebook would be a fantastic way to not only express themselves, but also to keep their drawings/writings all in one place.

With back-to-school also comes birthday parties and play dates! I would absolutely love Minted’s mommy calling cards. Their Praline Bunny cards are so functional and ideal to hand out.

Baby Mealtime Dish Sets from Bunnies by the Bay

Disclosure: My 3 Little Kittens did receive product for review purposes. All opinions are honest & that of My 3 Little Kittens.

Bunnies by the BayMy youngest was born ready to feed himself. Well, not really, but he was so set on being independent that he would refuse baby food just because he wanted to feed himself. When it came time for him to use a spoon himself, it was a fabulous moment. He loves being able to hold a spoon, drink out of a cup and use a big boy plate.

Baby Mealtime doesn’t have to be a hassle. Bunnies By the Bay takes this to heart. Thanks to their new line of Dish Sets, your little sweetie now can enjoy their independence with an adorable mealtime set!Baby Mealtime

My son has a very big personality and the Lick It Up! Dish Set couldn’t have been more perfect for him. It features his very favourite Bunnies by the Bay character, Skipit! The set includes a plate, cup, bowl and spoon that all are very unique and so fun to look at. Who wouldn’t want to eat out of a cute dish set that features a cute puppy?! Baby Mealtime Dish Sets from Bunnies by the Bay

 There are a total of four sets to choose from, so there is something perfect for the little one on your list. Each set features a Bunnies by the Bay character. I only wish they had these adorable dish sets when my older children were little. I would love to have owned them all!
