Kids love to feel independent - tying their own shoes, choosing their own clothes, carrying their own items. Instead of the traditional backpack, consider one of these charming Adirondack Baskets.
These baskets are lightweight and sturdy and offer plenty of room for snacks, books and special toys. There's even a doll-size Adirondack basket for your little one's little one.
Each is handwoven in white ash with adjustable cotton straps. Each is $12.95 here.
