Back-to-School with Peanuts

Happy Labor Day! I hope you’re all enjoying the unofficial “end of summer,” before you start preparing for the back-to-school routine (whether it’s to kick off the school year or going back to school after the long weekend)!

Growing up (and even admittedly now as an adult taking my sisters), I’ve always loved back-to-school shopping. There was just always something so exhilarating about running up and down the aisles at Target to grab all of the items on my list and of course, picking out a new backpack and lunchbox! And as a Peanuts Ambassador, I’m excited to give away an adorable lunchbox and Tervis Tumbler to one lucky reader (think: one item for the kid in your life and the other for you)!

Ready to head back to school? Share your favorite childhood memories + enter to win a fun Peanuts lunchbox + Tervis Tumbler!

Giveaway Details

First is the Thermos-brand lunchbox kit featuring a giggly Snoopy and Woodstock, and containing two separate compartments for crushproof lunches. The colorful screen-printed graphics will brighten up your child’s lunchtime, and it features a comfortable, padded carrying handle. The lunchbox is 100% PVA free and well-insulated to keep lunch fresh!

Next up, the Tervis-brand Peanuts 16-ounce wrap tumbler with lid, featuring Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and Woodstock! These cups are my absolute favorite. Their double-walled insulation helps keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold longer. The tumbler includes a plastic lid for safe traveling and to help prevent spills when on the go, and is made from BPA-free plastic. It’s microwave safe (without the lid), freezer safe, and dishwasher safe (the lid in the top rack only).

Enter below for your chance to win below! The giveaway will be open until 11:59 p.m. on September 16 and is open to U.S. residents.

Tell me, what was your favorite part of back-to-school when you were growing up?

    Those are such cute items and I love peanuts. When I was a kid I loved going clothes shopping for back to school and getting all the latest Lisa Frank stuff LOL now I’m telling my age for sure ;)

      Aren’t they?! Lisa Frank things were my fave too! I wish they still made some products – I’m sure I’d totally buy them for nostalgia, haha.

    I don’t know about anyone else but I started my preschooler on Peanuts as soon as I saw they had restarted the cartoon. We are a retro household here! Loving this giveaway!

    • September 9, 2016 / 11:07 PM

      That’s so amazing to hear! I hope more parents follow suit with that :)

    I have always loved shopping for school supplies too! I lucked out because I graduated with my BA in May and my son started Kindergarten this fall! I never had to miss a year of school supplies. ;)

    • September 9, 2016 / 11:08 PM

      Talk about good timing! So fun that you get to continue the school supply shopping tradition! I hope you picked up a few fun things for yourself too :)

    • September 10, 2016 / 9:56 AM

      How fun! I think they’re the best too :) Who’s your favorite character?

    My favorite part of back-to-school is the shopping! It’s the best. Unfortunately, we had no supply list this year, so there was no real shopping involved!

    • September 10, 2016 / 10:29 AM

      Me too! I hope you were able to pick up some other things for yourself shopping instead :)

      Always so fun! We had to wear uniforms in middle school so that was a major buzzkill, haha.

    Getting my school bag and lunch box. We had uniforms in grade school so his was the best way to show personality!

    • September 10, 2016 / 10:05 AM

      It is! We had them in middle school so I definitely relate!

    I vividly remember being obsessed with college ruled, spiral notebooks, and finding one of each color for every class. I was one of those kids that took notes in class, came home, re-wrote them nicer, and if they didnt look nice and clean, I’d re-write them again. I could go through a notebook before the first school week was done. Later in life, I discovered I had ADHD. hahah Great post!


    • September 10, 2016 / 10:05 AM

      It sounds like you probably did pretty well in school then, haha. I also loved getting different colored notebooks for each class and college ruled paper :)

    • September 10, 2016 / 10:00 AM

      Me too! I think I need to start using a physical planner again. I miss all of the color coding :)

    Happy Labor Day! I love Peanuts and am so excited for an excuse to watch the Great Pumpkin again!

  16. September 7, 2016 / 9:08 PM

    Oh gosh, that lunchbox is is so cute! I know I’m dating myself here, but I had a big yellow metal (1st generation) Peanuts lunchbox when I was in first grade. :)

    • September 10, 2016 / 10:03 AM

      How fun! If you win the giveaway you’ll be able to upgrade to the newest versions of the lunchbox + the best tumbler to carry around!
