Back to School with TinyPrints (and giveaway!)

Brian starts his teacher meetings today and next Wednesday is the first day of school, for him AND Cory.  My oldest child is starting school.

We really hadn't even decided what we were going to do about school this year until just last month.  But I'm so happy that we've chosen a local Montessori school.  I really don't have anything against public school except for the fact that they have all day kindergarten and I think that's just too long, especially for boys.  Boys need lots of creative active time!

So, he's starting school next week, we just got home from vacation on Friday, and now the mad rush is on to find the things he needs.

One thing I'm most worried about when he's out of my care is his allergy.  A gluten allergy, while not life threatening, is pretty overwhelming at times.  It's not just one thing, it comes in many forms and is in practically all pre-packaged foods.

So I'll be sending him to school with one of these adorable allergy alert cards from Tiny Prints.  He's 5 and pretty good about not eating foods without asking what's in them first, but a mom has to have something to worry about, right?  I'll feel a little better knowing the staff will have a quick reference handy!

And in that homemade lunch I will be sending because of his allergies I can add some cute little lunch box notes.  I remember when my mom sent notes in my lunch.  It wasn't every day, but made a special reminder that my lunch was packed with love.  And no, she didn't pack my lunch when I was older, that was my job!



Tiny Prints has lots of great options for your back to school needs and I've got a $50 gift card (plus free shipping!) for one of you to stock up!

Please visit the back to school page and check out all their supplies.  Pick one (or five!) and come back here leaving me a comment about what you like.

For extra entries you can use the options on the product page to share your choice on Pinterest, Facebook, Google+, or Twitter with the hashtag #TinyPrintsBTS.  Leave an extra comment for each share - up to 3 comments total including the first one.

Giveaway will close on August 28th at midnight PST.  Winners will have 2 days to reply so please make sure I have a way to contact you!

PS. Want more prizes from Tiny Prints?  Join the Back to School twitter party today (8/21) from 1-2pm Pacific.  RSVP and follow @resourcefulmom to play!

Tiny Prints has compensated me for my time on this post, but all opinions are my own.

  1. I love tiny prints! I have ordered from their sister site wedding paper divas and everything was awesome.
    I love everything on the site and I think i'd get the lunch box notes and use them as thank you's and coupons for my hair bow business!

  5. I'm loving the monsters, but since only my girls are in school, I'm thinking the flower cards would be more appreciated. :)
