School is starting soon, really soon, and that means it’s time to grab those last minute items. Skip the picked over big-box retailers and get your kids some fun supplies from PartyLand! If you’re wondering how a store with balloons, birthday candles and party blowers could fulfill any of your kids educational needs, stick with me and I’ll show you the items you may have over looked the last time you were in the store.

Take the ACK out of back-to-school shopping at PartyLand Utah!

Why send your kids to school with plain pencils when they could be choose from smiley face, colorful swirls, race cars or a one of a dozen other themed pencils? If your school is specific on about what type of pencils they can bring to class, consider getting a pack of fun pencils to use during study time at home. Sometimes the smallest incentives can help kids be more excited about school, as well as keeping them focused and on task.

Keep all those pencils sharp and ready to use with our bright and cheerful pencil sharpeners. They’re just the right size for little hands and there are enough to go around. It never hurts to have a few, so that you aren’t wasting precious time looking for a sharp pencil or a way to make one. There’s nothing worse than a child that’s ready and willing to do homework but can’t yet because you can’t find a usable pencil.

Making mistakes is a part of learning, so help your kids be ready to fix those mistakes with the cutest erasers in town. Those french fry and hamburger erasers will make anyone smile and those robots make me want to grab a back pack and head out the door for school. There are so many styles to choose from, you’re sure to find one for everyone in your family.

To add some fun to a sack lunch, be sure to include a decorative straw for their drink. Pick from a variety of patterns in your child’s favorite color or let them sip their chocolate milk through the loops of a crazy straw!

Another way to brighten up lunch is to add utensils in just the right hue. If your sending applesauce, yogurt or a pudding cup, then be sure to add a plastic spoon. You can also add in a colorful napkin to help those cute little smiles stay clean. Go the extra mile and grab a pack with their favorite character on it. A lot of the birthday themes we carry have coordinating napkins that don’t actually say “Happy Birthday” on them, so you could use them any day of the year! It’s also fun to add napkins that match upcoming holidays and events like “Talk Like a Pirate Day”.

Another way to make lunch special is to grab a colored paper sack or let kids decorate their lunch sacks with stickers.

You can also put a small dessert like a cookie or brownie in a party favor bag. If you’re making muffins for breakfast or to add into their lunch you’ll definitely want to look over all the different cupcake liners we have in stock.

While you’re shopping be sure to keep an eye out for the green labels on some of our items. Have the little ones look for them for you to keep them involved and entertained. These items are discounted, usually because they are being discontinued, which makes them a great choice while doing back-to-school shopping because who doesn’t love to save? So remember: Green labels = Save some green!
