Are your kids headed back to school soon? While this year, many kids will be attending virtual school, we know a lot are headed back into the classroom too. These DIY Backpacks and Fanny Packs could be really useful in getting the kids organized and keeping all of their belongings together.
DIY Backpacks and Fanny Packs
We know that in many schools, kids will need to wear masks and carry things like hand sanitizer with them this year. So, we’ve heard of quite a few parents who are planning to send their kids with these essentials in fanny packs so they’re always handy. Teachers are using them too for easy access all day long!
Backpacks and fanny packs are sold out in some places so we thought we’d round up some options so you can make your own DIY school bags. These are a great way to create a custom look personalized to each child as well.
