Using Mom's Back To School Guide To Shop At Walmart For Kindergarten School Supplies

This year back to school means something very special to me. My oldest grandson JJ is going to kindergarten. I'm thrilled, sad, and amazed all at once. It seems like the years went by so quickly, and only yesterday he was still only a baby.

Going to kindergarten means shopping for school supplies and I was very happy to volunteer to take him to Walmart and get him what he needed. What is Back to School without Elmer's School Glue and Elmer's Glue Sticks? They are absolute musts at any age and we are going to stock up on them today.

Back to school shopping is a whole lot easier if you use the Mom's Back To School Guide. It has all kinds of  wonderful suggestions and tips on buying great products for back to school. #momsguide

There's a whole section on great Elmer's products and the Elmer's 1st Day App, which is a free download.
Check it out and see how it can make your child's first day of school even more memorable.

We loaded up our cart with plenty of school supplies. Did you know that Elmer's makes a lot more products than just glue? One of our favorites is Elmer's Painters Markers. My grandson and I are going to use the markers and other things we are buying to make some special back to school crafts.

We got lots of Elmer's glue and glue sticks because I know he will need a lot for school, but he also uses  them all the time for the craft projects he does with his Mom and Dad at home.

Of course, no back to school shopping trip would be complete without a new backpack. Even after all these years, little boys still love Superman and Batman. So do the big boys!

My grandson wanted to make a present for his kindergarten teacher. I suggested to him that we also make some containers to hold all of his new pencils, crayons and markers so that he wouldn't lose them.
We have gathered up all our supplies to make our craft projects. We are using an old paper-covered coffee can and some smaller cans. We also need lots of pencils for this project!

Here is my grandson hard at work on his special present for his teacher. He was very patient and careful trying to glue on the pencils. We really enjoy doing all kinds of crafts together, including painting and making things out of old and recycled stuff. We use lots of Elmer's glue and glue sticks for our projects.
He wanted me to say that is not his sippy cup, but his little brother's. He's definitely a big guy now!

We love using the Elmer's Painters Markers for craft projects. They really last a long time and you can use them on all kinds of surfaces. Finishing touches are being added to a drawing.

Here is our finished projects. My grandson is so proud of his Teacher's gift. She can put pencils or anything else in it. I think it came out so beautiful. The cheerful covered cans will store all of his pencils, markers and crayons.
We had a great time using our Mom's Back To School Guide and shopping at Walmart for Elmer's glue and other Elmer's products. We are getting so excited as the first day of kindergarten gets closer.

I think this will be a wonderful year for both of us!
