As part of our back to school prep, I’ve been on the search for a great reusable water bottle to send along with my son to first grade.  I wanted something sturdy, leak-proof, and cool enough to meet his approval! 

Here, in no particular order of preference, are my top 4 picks:

  1. camelbak pirateCamelbak Kids 12oz Bottle, $14, We have two of these and love them.  The Camelbak bite valve is super easy for the kids to use, and we haven’t had any spills yet!  There are lots of great patterns (love the Pirate bottle), and solid colors too.  Find them at REI, Amazon, and others, we got ours at The Paper Store in Hingham!  {keep reading…}
