Are your young ones equipped to go back to school during a pandemic?

Private schools have already gone back to the classroom and public schools are preparing to do so in the near future. While it’s exciting to pack a lunchbox and have a qualified teacher guide lessons, safety is still a priority.

Here are a few items to help kickstart your child’s 2021 educational journey, with all of the necessary adjustments that are needed by the pandemic.

Masks are scientifically proven to be a highly effective way of protecting yourself and those around you by limiting the spread of the Coronavirus. We stock a variety of plain, neutral triple-layer masks as well as fun and funky masks.

Our handmade masks are sold in a kid, teen and adult size, meaning that your child can go to school in comfort, without their mask falling off, fitting poorly, being worn thin and as a result not offering maximum protection. 

Masks do wear out with use and washing and it is necessary to replace masks when they are worn out to ensure optimal protection. Our masks are the recommended three layers and for more info on their design and components please click here.

We are currently running a 30% discount on our masks and hand sanitisers - when ordering three masks or more! Simply apply the code ‘BetterYear2021’ on checkout.

Sanitising our hands has become second-nature. With our children returning to school and being exposed to various surfaces and items, it’s important that they have their own sanitiser to use when they feel it is needed. 

Our sanitisers come in nifty little bottles and perfect size fit in their school bags. Even better they have fun kid themes like Unicorns Snoozing, Dinosaur Breath, Out and About in Space and many others too, all in fun pink, green and gold colour themes. 

The teen range is groovy and cool and the designs have been selected by teens for teens. Each bottle is made with natural ingredients combined with a 70% alcohol solution.
