Getting ready for school is such a thrilling period. It is going to be a new experience for both you and your preschooler. And when you see a little kid carrying that heavy backpack that nearly drags the child down, the only thing you want is to throw that rucksack away.
That is why before you purchase must-have items for preschoolers, pay great attention to the backpack in the first place. Make sure that it perfectly fits the child’s proportions.
FYI here are some tips on how to select the right size of a backpack for your little one.
Number 1: its bottom should sit not more than 4 inches below the child’s waistline. Number 2: the point where the bag and its straps cross must be 1-2 below the top of the child’s shoulders. Number 3: the perfect weight of the backpack is 10% of their own weight.
