Back to School: School Supplies at TargetThursday, August 28, 2014
Given the fact that I have known since I was twelve that I would become a French teacher, it is no surprise that I love school and pretty much everything about school. (I'll give you one guess what I like the least.) On the top of my list of things I love about Back to School season, aside from a regular pay cheque, is shopping for school supplies. Even if it's something I don't really need, I can't help but pick up a fresh pack of markers or a new set of pens. One of my favourite brand of colours is Crayola. They have become a yearly must-have not just for my kids but for me as a teacher. I love colouring and providing examples of art work for my students so a personal set of Crayola colours always comes in handy. This year, Target sent us a lovely selection of school supplies that included the Crayola colours and scissors as seen above, just in time for Back to School!
Also included in our Back to School package were several highlighters, markers, erasers, rulers and 2-pocket portfolios by Up&Up brand. Look at all the pretty colours!
Dictionaries, craft glue, and Hilroy school essentials, Target seems to carry it all. Even Marvel branded pencils - only $1 for a 4-pack! And if it's savings you enjoy, their current flyer shows 50% off select school supplies.
If you're looking for new fashion items for the kids, Target has all that and more. Not only did they send over a pair of new jeans for my son and a pretty dress for my daughter, they totally made my son's day by sending over a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hoodie. Cowabunga, dude!
He's had hoodies before but never one quite like this one. He loves throwing it on, hood and all, and pretending he is a hero with a half-shell. Thank you Target for sending over this pretty awesome Back to School care package! Every little thing really is a big deal.
