One thing Mr. K is excited about, to get ready to go to Kindergarten, is to go shopping for school supplies. I remember this too as a child. There's is just something fun and thrilling about getting new pencils, new notebooks, and of course, a new backpack! When I showed Mr. K Carhartt's new line of school backpacks, he quickly (and excitedly) chose the Camo Junior Bib Pocket Pack.
|Mr. K and his new Carhartt backpack!
The Junior Bib Pocket Backpack is the perfect size for my soon to be Kindergartner. I don't have to worry about it hitting the back of his knees, but yet there is plenty of room in it for him to carry his folders and pair of shoes. I also like that the backpack is water repellent for those rainy and snowy school days during the year. Mr. K is most excited for all of the pockets! There is a front organization panel that he says he's going to put pencils and pictures he draws in, and he is going to put his "bus toys" (he has a 45 minute bus ride to school) in the front zippered pocket. The front zippered pocket will give his toys their own space, separate from the roomy main compartment that will hold his school work. In the end, with a name like Carhartt, I know the backpack will be dependable, strong and durable.
