Since Target is fairly new in our area, I am still discovering everything that they have to offer. I have found some of the best athletic wear for children at Target, and they have a great selection of movies too. They sent me a huge box of school supplies and clothing for back to school, so that I can see what they have to offer for back to school as well.


The kids already ramsacked the box and removed some of the clothing and colour supplies, but you can see the great items they have. Crayola markers and pencil crayons, Sharpies and notebooks will be just what your child needs for school, and you can find an abundance of erasers, pencils, pens, etc there too. The kids fashions are stylish and comfortable too. My daughter is excited about the Duct Tape craft kit that includes instructions on how to create a purse or wallet out of duct tape! I think the stiletto scotch tape dispenser will make a great conversation starter on an office desk. The hoodies (not shown) are already being worn daily by my boys and Avery loves the cute cardigan she got. They are all great items for a new school year.

Here is a list of the must haves for my kids school year:

  • Backpacks and lunch bags
  • Indoor and outdoor shoes
  • Pencil Cases
  • Lined paper
  • Pencil Crayons
  • Pens and Pencils
  • Washable Markers
  • Rulers
  • Pencil Sharpeners
  • Glue Sticks
  • Calculators
  • Math Sets
  • Kleenex

Of course there are a lot of other things that the kids need for back to school, like clothing for all types of weather, rubber boots, jackets, hats and lunch containers. You can find all of these back to school needs at Target, and even some great items for Mom and Dad too! You can visit the Target Canada website to create your own back to school checklist and explore the site to see everything they have to offer.
