Whether the lucky children you’re shopping for school supplies for are elementary school students, high school age kids, or maybe even cartoon loving collegiate peeps, here are a few fun & yummy cartoonish notions.
Firstly, here is a bite sized variety pack of cartoon characters both old and new that just might be a good fit for your fun-filled little girls, boys, teens, and/or college students, listed in alphabetical order: Barney, Betty Boop, Care Bears, Dora the Explorer, Jem, Jetsons, Flinstones, Hello Kitty, Little Pony, Mickey Mouse, Peanuts, Smurfs, Scooby Doo, Snoopy, Speed Racer, Spongebob, Strawberry Shortcake, Tinkerbell, Transformers, Tweety Bird, & Underdog. Of course, there are many more too – but hopefully this little variety pack just might get your kiddos and you started.
Secondly, here are three different categories of not too pricey and sometimes quite creative supplies. Ooh la la!
1. Pencils, Pencil Sharpeners, Erasers, Rulers, Notebooks, Stickers, Tote Bags, Backpack’s & More –
Pretty much all of these school supplies will be needed and all of them are available in the form of various cartoon characters both old & new, so the main thing to keep in mind is what are your kids favorite cartoonish creatures. Have each kid make you a little list of three or more of their favorites and then whenever you’re shopping for supplies, you can take a gander at those lists and see what you can find. In addition to shopping within actual stores, you might also want to keep online shopping and/or searching in mind. I spent some time online searching myself and here are just a few interesting little cartoonish school supply snippets you might like to partake of too-

3. Paint Your Own Pottery to Use for Exceptionally Creative, Unique Cartoonish School Supplies-
Why not investigate a Paint your Own Pottery shop to find out if creative kids can hand paint and design an extra special school supply to be glazed and fired and then look creatively wondrous? I happen to have a sister who owns such a shop called ‘All Fired Up!’ in Medina Ohio and amongst her myriad paintable supplies, she does offer some cartoon character items to paint, including Mickey Mouse, Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story, and more. A creative kid might love painting her/his very own unique bank in which to store certain little school supplies such as lunch money!
(Feel free to read a little more about All Fired Up! In this earlier Associated Content article I wrote, entitled ‘Paint a Piece of Pottery for Your Valentine’ –
Happy School shopping for fun-filled supplies featuring Girls, Boys, Dogs, Kitty’s, Racers, Shortcake, and much more!
