Stationery supplies for Back to School

Consult your children's back to school supply list to find exactly what they need for writing and drawing.

Most writing selections come with multiples, such as 10 or 12 per pack, for lasting your student through the next few months of the school year before it's time to restock. 

Don't forget to shop for notebooks, paper and binders too to keep kids organized when school starts. Choose notebooks with multiple subject dividers or smaller ones to keep separately for each class. Filler paper in wide ruled or college ruled is a great choice for keeping inside binders, and folders in bright colours and patterns or that are covered in familiar characters keep loose worksheets and paper corralled.

For high school and college students, it's important to be able to type papers and do online research when needed. Walmart Canada has a wide selection of laptops and tablets for completing assignments at home or at school.

Create a designated study space

Walmart Canada has everything you need to make a dedicated space in your child's room or your home office that's ideal for studying and homework completion. Select fun bean bags, stylish accent tables and functional lamps for a comfortable place to study, and add a small computer desk that holds a laptop or desktop for doing research and writing papers while sitting in a supportive office chair.

When papers are written and proofread, shop for printers and ink to print them out. For students who have a poster display project to complete, printers are convenient for colour photos and text.

Storage and organization

If you've got a kid who's headed off to college, you've come to the right place. Stock up on laundry baskets, bins, drawers and carts and other affordable dorm room storage solutions from Walmart Canada. Plastic storage boxes are great for holding seasonal clothes and they stack easily, while drawers and rolling carts provide quick access to daily essentials, such as school supplies or health and beauty items.

For high school or college kids, look for those with large capacities to prevent frequent trips back to the dorm room or locker.  Some may have dedicated slots for tablets or laptops to safely sit without being damaged. Younger children may enjoy choosing one in their favourite colour or pattern or those emblazoned with familiar TV or movie characters. Check out those from PAW PatrolDisney's Frozen or Cars to delight your youngster as they head back to school.

Don't forget to add a matching lunch bag to keep kids well-fed during the day.
