Back to School Essentials: What to Look for in a Kindy Child's Backpack


As the year starts, so does a whole wave of new faces get introduced to Kindy. You child's first day at school is such a great moment that will be cherished for ever.

It's time to start thinking about getting your kindergartener ready for the exciting adventure of going back to school. One essential item on your back-to-school checklist is a backpack that suits your child's needs and style. At Creative Kids Lab, you'll find a fantastic selection of backpacks that cater to both functionality and aesthetics. Here is a guide to help you determine what to look for in a kindy child's backpack for back to school.

1. Size and Capacity:

When selecting a backpack for your kindergartener, the first thing to consider is the size and capacity. It's crucial that the backpack can comfortably fit all of your child's school supplies, including books, notebooks, lunchbox, and more. Look for backpacks with multiple compartments and pockets to help keep items organised. Undersized backpack will need to be upgraded, oversized backpacks will be awkward and cumbersome. Creative Kids Lab offers backpacks in various sizes, ensuring you'll find one that suits your child's needs perfectly. For Kindy we recommend looking at the Alimasy Range of Midsized Backpacks 

2. Comfort and Fit:

Comfort is paramount when choosing a backpack for your kindy child. Look for backpacks with padded shoulder straps and a padded back panel. Adjustable straps are a plus since they allow you to customize the fit to your child's size. The Herschel 26 litre backpack offers great comfort and of very high quality

3. Durability and Quality:

Kindergarten can be tough on backpacks, with kids dragging them through all sorts of adventures. Make sure the backpack you choose is made of durable, high-quality materials.

4. Design and Style:

Let your kindergartener express their personality with a backpack that reflects their style. Creative Kids Lab offers a wide range of designs, patterns, and colours to choose from, allowing your child to pick a backpack they love. This personal touch can make the transition to school more exciting and enjoyable.

5. Easy to Clean:

Kids can be messy, and their backpacks often bear the brunt of spills and accidents. Look for backpacks that are easy to clean with a simple wipe-down or machine washable features like our ever popular MontiiCo Backpack.

7. Extra Features:

Consider extra features that might be beneficial for your child, such as water bottle pockets, a dedicated space for sunscreens or a bit of pocket money. A great add on is the MontiiCo Zip Pouch which attaches easily to any backpack.
