Losing a pet can be devastating, but commemorating your beloved pet with a pet memorial can help ease the pain by giving you a chance to remember your furry friend long after they’ve gone.

Remember your furry friend long after they’ve gone with one of our Personalized Pet Memorials, like the customer favorite “In Loving Memory” Memorial Pet Stone. The tasteful garden stone can be laser engraved with your pet’s name and memorial years below your choice of a pet graphic. Your graphic choices include a paw print, dog bone, cat, fish, bunny, hamster, horse or turtle. Place your Pet Memorial Stone in your pet’s favorite place in the yard, as an accent piece for the garden or near your walkway so you can remember them every day.

Helpful Tips for a Smooth Back-To-School Transition

owl backpack1 300x300 Helpful Tips for a Smooth Back To School TransitionTrading in a lazy summer schedule for a structured school day can be tough on kids, but we’ve put together some great tips to help make their back-to-school transition go as smoothly as possible.

First thing’s first, we suggest breaking the back-to-school news to your kids gently by announcing that it’s time for back-to-school shopping! Kids love picking out school supplies and it tends to help soften the blow by reminding them that a fresh new year with endless possibilities lies ahead.

Your children’s school should offer a checklist that includes all of the school supplies they’ll need throughout the school year, including a backpack, lunch bag, folders, notebooks, a pencil case, etc. You can find all of these items in designs perfect for students of all ages in our Toddler and Youth, Preteen and Teen, or College Student department in the Back-to-School Store!

Let your kids have fun looking through our wide selection of designs that are perfect for boys and girls of all ages.

Picking out their favorite school supplies will help them warm up to the idea of going back to school and the personalized folders and notebooks are an added bonus as they will help them (and you!) stay organized all year long!

usb 150x150 Helpful Tips for a Smooth Back To School TransitionPersonalized school supplies not only help your kids stay organized, they also help prevent your kids from mixing up their belongings with another friend or student’s – this is especially important with the new item that’s popping up on almost every school’s checklist: USB drives.

Most kids will bring in the same black flash drives hard to label and distinguish from the rest, but with our “You Name It!” Bamboo Flash Drive – your kids will never worry about mixing up their school work with another student!

bookmarks 150x150 Helpful Tips for a Smooth Back To School TransitionOnce you have all the school supplies you need, it’s time to prepare your kids’ brains to get back in the swing of things. Encourage your kids to do some summer reading and/or brain teasers as soon as possible so they can start flexing their brains (which may have been on cruise control throughout the summer) and be prepared to return to a full day of learning. If you’re having a hard time getting your kids to read this summer, try motivating them with one of our Personalized Bookmarks or create a reward system that results with a prize or treat every time they meet one of their reading goals. Starting some reading or light academic work as soon as possible promotes a gradual back to school transition that will help your children feel more comfortable and confident as they start the new school year!

Finally, help your children make a smooth back to school transition by calming any first day jitters they may have. Ask your kids how they’re feeling about going back to school and if there is anything that they’re anxious or worried about. For example, if your little one is headed to their very first day of school, or their first day at a new school, they may be nervous about navigating through the building or riding the bus.

We suggest helping them calm their nerves by taking them on a “trial run” before school starts. Start by walking them to the school bus and explaining what time the bus will pick them up on their first day. Then take them to the school and walk them through the hallways and straight to their classroom so they know which way to go on their first day. We also suggest showing them around the entire school, including where the bathrooms are located and, if possible, introduce them to their new teacher or school principal. This little “trial run” will answer any “what ifs” they may have and will have them feeling much more confident about their first day of school!

Follow all these tips plus make sure they eat a nice healthy breakfast and get a good night’s sleep and your little ones are sure to be fully prepared for their first day back to school!
