Since our eldest is starting kindergarten in less than a month, we’ve spent the last couple of weeks trying to track down all the things on her school supply list. (Is it just me, or are some of the items on school lists ridiculously specific?)
Despite our difficulties in finding certain items, school shopping turned out to be a little adventure for us, and our five-year-old is really excited to bring her pretty mermaid backpack to kindergarten and start making new friends!
And what says “welcome back to school” better than a set of word search puzzles, which are both entertaining and filled with new vocabulary words for kids to practice?
