Lots of kids are already back to school but some of us have a couple weeks left. Looking for and purchasing back to school supplies can be quite the task so why not make it a little bit more fun by purchasing items that showcase diverse characters that look like our multiracial children?
The following is a list I put together of some items that I found that feature characters other than the normal blonde haired / blue eyed cartoons. #representationmatters so why not carry that over into school supplies?

Unique Back to School Items for Multiracial Kids
Izzy and Liv Personalized Plates: Great if you home school or just for breakfast in the morning before heading off on the bus. (Also.. if you homeschool have you checked out this Montessori Inspired eBook?)Personalized Curly Cutie Notebooks: Kids have to get notebooks for their schoolwork. Why can’t they feature curly cute kids that look more like them?
Book bags with diverse characters such as this one with Elena, Moana, Doc McStuffins, Monster High, and Diego: I wish there were more options. If I find more I will come back and update this. But this is a big one. Kids will wear these everyday and will be one of the items they are most excited about. Why not have a diverse character on it?
Multiracial themed clothes: You want to teach your kids to be proud and confident of themselves. They can wear their confidence right on themselves! I found some incredibly cute options through Izzy and Liv like this Brown Skin Cutie Tee & 100% Pure Brown Sugar Top. There are also some cute designs (by me) like this Curl Next Door Kids tee in multiple colors or this Mixed Kid Tee.
DynaSmiles Notebooks: These are some great options for older kids and teens. I freaking LOVE their designs. They are incredibly beautiful. I mean… just check them out!
Diversity Tote: Great message wrapped up into a totebag!
Oh… and don’t think I forgot out mom and dad! Here are some great options for you to wear while dropping the kids off and picking them up: These “Yes They are MY Kids” Tops, “I’m NOT the Nanny“, Mixed Mama Zip Up to keep warm on those cold mornings, and this great “I love my Mixed Kids” Mug or “Keep Calm and <3 Mixed Babies” Mug to drink your morning coffee out of so you can function!
So those are my unique multiracial gift ideas for Back to School time. Let me know if you have any of them? Have your kids started school yet? Let me know down below in the comments.
