Back to school with Sambro

With Megan starting school in September there are three things that she is looking forward to the most. One, the fact that she gets to have a school dinner each day (Eva has regaled her with tales of chocolate cake and cookies!), two, she finally gets to have some light up black school shoes and three, having a brand new backpack to take to school each day.

And for the last few weeks she has agonised over which backpack to choose, for a four year old this decision is life changing, before settling on her favourite TV show of the moment, Paw Patrol. And luckily for me, because this back to school lark is getting expensive, we were fortunate enough to be sent a Paw Patrol backpack from Sambro.

We were also sent some Paw Patrol stationery items to go with the backpack, perfect for starting school.

The backpack is the perfect size for Megan to take to school each day, filled with her reading book, her water bottle and whatever little toy she insists on taking in the same way she does every time we leave the house.

With adjustable straps the bag fits perfectly, and despite having countless backpacks previously, Megan was beyond excited to finally have her very own school bag.

My favourite thing about the backpack is that it is lovely and bright, meaning that, unless anyone else in her class has the same bag, she will have no problem picking it out. I also love that it can be wiped clean too as I know from experience that school cloak rooms can get quite dirty!

You can find the full range from Sambro over at Very 

where they have so many fantastic school bags ready for September. It’s going to be a long five weeks with Megan asking every two minutes, “Is it time for school yet?”, I just hope she’s as keen on that first Monday morning!!

    How adorable does she look with her Paw Patrol backpack?! 🙂 I know two little girls who would love one of those! Also, I can’t blame her for being excited about the light up shoes 😉 x

    She looks so cute with her new back pack! As a teacher, I hate seeing back to school adverts as it reminds me my summer is limited, but I have to admit I’ve already got a ‘back to school’ list of things I need to buy, including a new bag, lunch box and water bottle! Hope Megan enjoys school when it finally comes!
