Sharing is caring!

My oldest is heading off to Kindergarten in August and the prep has already begun. It literally feels like school just ended and we’re ordering uniforms and supplies for next year. We’re sending her to a private school next year and licensed characters aren’t going to fly on her backpack or lunch bag. I haven’t really broke the bad news to her yet, but did start shopping for some great alternatives that should hopefully make her feel a little better. She’s always down for shimmer, sparkle and glitter!

I’ve rounded up 28 of the most adorable backpacks for little girls all under $25. Just click on an image to shop! I have a feeling she’ll go for either the unicorn backpack or the shimmery cat backpack in the third row.

Edit to add: I just ordered the L.L. Bean Junior Backpack in Bright Pink thanks to the Instagram community’s advice! With code GET20, the final price is $23.96!
