Whether your kid is starting preschool or entering high school, transitioning them from the long Summer days into an academic mindset — not to mention altering their wake-up schedule — can be hard. Sometimes (if you're lucky), you can get them excited to head back by creating fun moments surrounding the prep work. Whether that's learning about teachers, organizing supplies, or buying something new for class, you can turn that apprehension into enthusiasm. Need a new shiny backpack to get them excited to fill it up? Choose Perry Mackin's Charlie Kids School Backpack available in an assortment of fun colors and handpicked by "POPSUGAR" as one of their awesome backpacks!
