We are in the midst of the most unusual back-to-school season we’ve seen. Like many of you, we feel like it’s still March. After weathering the difficult pivot to virtual learning last spring, we rallied and somehow got our kids through. But the pandemic continues and now we are beginning a new academic year fraught with even more uncertainty – and more virtual learning.
As much as we would like to hit pause – or even rewind – life and the school year will march on. This Back-to-School Guide, put together by our friends at the National Parenting Product Awards, is designed to provide resources and inspiration to support families through the year ahead and help us continue the fun and learning for our kids.
Flip through the pages and discover cool new gear, fun learning apps, software to keep kids safe online, great new books and other learning tools. All the products have been evaluated by the National Parenting Product Awards and have proudly earned a 2020 NAPPA Award Seal. We also have a few delicious and healthy recipes to keep your family fueled as you work and learn from home.
And check out these timely back-to-school articles on getting organized and setting up a happy space for your kids to learn at home, our editor’s roundup of fall enrichment activities that the whole family can enjoy, and a mental health wellness checklist created by moms for moms.
Wishing you all a happy, healthy new school year!
