We have ended up sticking with a boring plastic lunch box like this
We don't use the drink bottle in it as the small ice packs fit nicely and I sometimes put an extra ice pack depending on what they are eating.
I bought an expensive one that got kicked around by some boys and broke. These ones have been kicked, dropped and who knows what else and have survived.

For nit defense.... I have a spray bottle that I put water a bit of detangler, some tea tree oil and eucalyptus oil in. They do their hair and I spray that in.
So far so good. Nits once in 4 years

My little miss starts kindy this year (4yo kindy in wa). Not full time, just 2.5days a week but still very excited. Pretty daunting too, probably more for me as she has never attended day care
She is attending a private school so I had already organised her uniform before end of last term and the school organises their booklists. Just needed a few things like lunchbox, shoes (plain black velcro jogger which I got this week), hair ties and another little pillow for rest time. Oh how I wish I got rest time!
I've been told my a few mums now that a spray bottle with a mixture of tea tree oil, lavender oil & water works for nits. I'm happy to try whatever!

My last bubba is starting Kindy (WA..he's 4) this year. I can't wait lol! He's driving me batty at home.... I think I will be sadder next year when he starts full time school and I no longer have any kids home in the day. I'm not looking forward to it though because I'm pretty sure he will be the kid who cries every morning. He hates daycare (wants to stay with mum) and is already saying he doesn't want to go to big school . He's a real little homebody, although I'm hoping having his big brother at the school will help. He'll also have to go to after school care at the school but I haven't dared tell him about that yet! He won't be happy 😐

My dd started last year so grade 1 this year.
One thing i discovered. No matter the price drink bottles would always break.
Buy two hats and jumpers they would always go missing for a few days even if they were named

My eldest starts year 2 and my middle child starts school this year.
I agree about the drink bottles. I have gone through so many and spent more money replacing broken drink bottles than any other school item. Doesn't matter how much I pay, they somehow get broken. Even the metal ones.
I didn't even know you could buy skorts in target. I think they're $26 at my daughter's school uniform shop. Having said that, she is going into her third year of school and has 2 skorts that still fit her and that she will wear this year as well. Not sure cheap target ones would last that long?

I've used smash water bottles from woollies now for the past year and never had one break. I've got 3 kids taking them to school (2 every day). And they're cheap enough that they don't stress me if they get lost (which does happen).
