The school year for 2020 is going to be one for the books. Many school districts in the US are choosing to participate in virtual learning so back to school shopping is going to look a little different this year, to say the least.
While it can feel a little intimidating one thing is for sure- Costco won’t let you down. This big box store will help you get every extra item that you may need for virtual learning success
Want to see what I picked up for my kids for this year’s school year? Here are my virtual learning must-haves from Costco…
3-Book Sticker Art Puzzle Bundle
If you are looking at having multiple kids at home in different grades, there will be times where one kid needs attention while the others play independently.
One of my plans for a successful school year in virtual learning is to always keep some other activities around to entertain your other kids.
I love this pack of 3 books filled with different quiet activities from Costco. There is more than enough activities in these three books to entertain your kids for hours and they come in super fun themes like Star Wars, Marvel Comics, and even Bob Ross!

Magnetic Dry Erase Board
Something that I know will come in handy this next year for virtual learning will be a white board. My kids are younger and learning how to read so they often need to me to remind them what a letter or number looks like during an activity.
This last spring I wished I had a white board almost every day! SO when it was announced that we would continue into the fall with virtual learning, I headed straight to Costco and grabbed this dry erase board.
This dry erase board is the perfect size and a great price for something that we will use almost every day. Not to mention the amount of stress that this thing reduces!

Macey Table with 4 chairs
Kids work better in their own space designed for them, especially when they are asked to do school in a completely different way this year.
This table and chair set is designed for smaller kids and can help make learning feel special, even when they are learning virtual for the fall.
Plus, this table and chairs is made of metal so it is sturdy and will match the rest of your home decor. Soon your kids will be begging to do everything at this table and chair set- its worth the investment!

Art 101 143 Piece All Media Artist Set with Wood Case
If I learned anything about virtual learning this past spring, it’s that you need to have supplies on hand and ready to whip out at a moment’s notice!
Which is why I picked up this super awesome artist kit for my oldest daughter. This kit has every sort of medium that any class project may require.
My personal experience with these kits is that the art supplies inside aren’t the best quality but- as we have mentioned on this blog before- low quality is hardly ever the case with Costco!
Despite the great quality, my favorite part has to be the wooden case. It stores all of the supplies so easily that whenever my kids need art supplies I can just ask “where’s your kit?”
Anything to simplify school in 2020- am I right?
Jetson Saturn 3 Wheel Light-up Folding Scooter
When it was announced that school would be virtual this fall, I had one thought go through my mind- what about their energy? How was I supposed to keep my kids active and burn all of that never-ending kid energy? No P.E., no recess… it’s rough.
That’s where I need to plan ahead and get ready for lots and lots of walks around the neighborhood.
To keep these walks fun and lighthearted, I ordered this awesome Jetson Saturn Folding Scooter to help my kids go on the long walks without complaining. I picked it up from Costco next week and I am not sure who is more excited.
The best part? It’s foldable so it won’t take up too much room in my garage or the trunk of my car.
