In an alternate universe, the days are 40 hours long and 20 of those hours are filled with peace, quiet, and motivation to sew and hot-glue to my heart’s content. Since that’s not reality, I will instead round up ten handmade back-to-school supplies that are unique, clever, and crafted by someone else with more time, patience, and skill than I have.

4. Darth Vader Pencil Cup
This pencil cup is made on a 3D printer. How cool is that?
5. Female Superhero Insulated Lunch Bag
My little girl is obsessed with superheroes! She dressed as Super Girl (to her bother’s Super Man) for Halloween when she was two years old, and last year (at age 3) she was Bat Girl. Gotta love a lunch bag with girl power!
6. Reusable Snack Bags
If you feel as guilty as I do every time you fill your kid’s (or your own) lunch bag with a bunch of plastic baggies, try this set of three reusable bags. My only fear would be that my kids would accidentally throw them away out of habit!

From Star Wars heroes to Disney princesses and Saturday morning cartoon characters, these fun personalized water bottles are sure to be a hit with your little one.
8. Printable Lunchbox Notes
I love the watercolor look of these cute and clever lunchbox notes!

These things are a must if you have kids at school, or even colleagues prone to stealing lunch from the office refrigerator. I love how pretty and modern this set is, perfect for bigger kids.
10. Calendar/Planner for Kids
It’s never too early to teach kids how to stay organized, and these printable calendar pages will get them off to a great start. They come in prints boys and girls alike will love.
