Back to School Outfits | Back to School Basics | Kid Apps for Success | Quotes for Inspiration


It’s back to school for our favorite girls! And what better way to get ready than with unicorn inspired outfits and school supplies, kid apps for success, and of course, girl power inspiration to cover all grounds this school year? Nothing can make our little girls feel more empowered than having her own style, that’s why Chewy created the unicorn-inspired tutu line just in time for back to school. If your little girl is ready to take on this school year like an absolute #girlboss, here are the tools, apps, tutus, and quotes for heading back to school the right way. 

Back to school lists are super helpful, but girl power back to school lists are even better. Girls want it all and if there’s anything the Women’s National Team (WNT) has showed us this year, it’s that inspiration and hard work start early. So we created 4 inspiring and helpful lists to make going back to school inspirational and empowering for girls. 

How do you pick the perfect back to school dress?

Back to school is an exciting time for girls who love to learn and be with their friends. But answering the question of what to wear can sometimes be overwhelming. Should I wear a dress? Should I match my friends? Are just some of the thoughts that come to mind for little girls. Letting girls pick out their own outfits for back to school is an empowering practice that parents can implement early on. Nothing screams dress to impress for a little girl this season than unicorns and tutus. Whimsical outfits in our first list feel fun, inspired, and give girls a boost of confidence going into their new school year. "A child being able to dress herself is such an important psychological and emotional milestone," says Karen Ruskin, Psy.D., LMFT, a family therapist in Sharon, Massachusetts. This is the back to school outfits list for little girls who love magical beginnings.

Secret to Success Apps for a Girl Power Back to School

What are the Best Back to School Apps for Kids?
Yeah sure, going back to school is great. Your kids will learn new things from new teachers and meet new friends. But when it comes to optimizing your kid’s success in life, that practice extends well beyond the classroom doors and even beyond homework. To get your kids ready for excelling beyond the classroom, try out these apps to assist with teaching your kids time management, meditation & stress management, financial literacy, and even how to ask for help when they need it, from a tutor. 



Time Management for Kids with the Bear Focus Timer App 
One of the great skills to learn in life is how to manage projects and time. While we often take this role on for our children, what if we were to teach them the art of time management for themselves? Using a kid friendly app like Bear Focus Timer, we can take famous Pomodoro techniques for time tracking and give our kids the tools to track their time when doing homework, cleaning their room, or even working on an extra curricular project. Time management skills are leadership skills and they help set our kids up for success when it comes to the many roles they will take on from college to business and life in general. 
Meditation & Stress Management for Kids with the Dreamy Kid App
Kids are often inundated by the demands that a new school year brings. Teaching kids the tools of mindfulness and being present is a skill that will pay off for the rest of their life. Introduce your little one(s) to meditation with a kid-friendly app to get them used to practicing self-care even when demands are high and schedules are busy. Apps like Dreamy Kid, are useful because they speak to children at their level and bring them confidence through calmness and reflection. 
Financial Literacy for Kids with the Star Banks Adventure app
I’m sorry did you not hear the news? You can never be too healthy or too wealthy! So perhaps our parents weren’t the savviest with finances, that doesn’t mean our kids have to endure the same fate. But how do we teach our kids complex topics like return on investment and inflation? Perhaps since we might already let our kids indulge in some video game time, we can assign them a video game like the Star Banks Adventure app, that helps them learn financial concepts like
  • Financial planning
  • Saving
  • Investing
  • Asset allocation
  • Inflation
When we take our children’s financial education into our own hands, we guarantee that they will have the skillset to take on the world when they come of age. No one is living at home passed 18 with these skills!

Teach your kids how to get help when they need it from experts by connecting with tutors who specialize in the topics that your kids need help with the most. Whether they could use a few more math tools or help getting those grammar rules in order, tutoring apps like Khan Academy make it easy to get the help students need so they can excel and take on new challenges.
