A new school year is just around the corner, but you may not be ready to let go of summer just yet. These adorable ice cream themed back-to-school supplies let you take summer with you into the classroom and with trendy designs that new kindergartners will love, everyone will be looking forward to that first day of school.
I have a new kindergartner this year and we’ve been getting her ready to start school by finding some super fun ice cream themed school supplies and talking about all the amazing things she is going to learn this year.
First, you know that I didn’t head to a store for our back-to-school shopping. With 6 kids, I absolutely don’t have time for that. Amazon is my go-to when it comes to back-to-school shopping . . . and everything else.
I created a “First Day of Kindergarten” Idea List for Amazon’s new Back-To-School Store. For your shopping convenience, the Amazon Back-to-School Store features items curated by grade level, essentials and deals, as well as Idea Lists from teachers and parents. It’s a great place to find everything you need for the school year —not to mention free shipping on millions of items. Thanks to Amazon for sponsoring this post.
For my “First Day of Kindergarten” Idea List, we found some amazing ice cream themed school supplies from Amazon that we definitely couldn’t have found locally. I love that my daughter gets to show off her own unique style when she heads to school this fall and she had such a good time picking everything out. Some of the highlights from my Amazon Idea List are below.
Ice Cream Backpacks
All good back-to-school shopping starts with the backpack. If you can find the perfect backpack, everything else seems to fall into place. Our top pick is this adorable Olive Kids Handypak Backpack in the Sweet Dreams style. This backpack is the perfect size for new Kindergartners — still big enough to hold a folder but not so big that it’s overwhelming for kindergartners to carry.
Made by Wildkin, a privately owned company from Nashville, Tennessee that focuses on creating high quality, non-toxic products for kids, this backpack is the perfect choice to get you through the school year. My future kindergartener loved all the sweet ice cream designs on the bag and I loved how many storage options were inside the bag.
If you want a more sophisticated look (and your daughter isn’t completely set on a pink or purple backpack) I love this State State Girls Mini Kane ice cream backpack. They make it even better by donating a backpack to a child in need for every purchase.
Don’t waste time hunting for your kids’ backpacks in the morning before school. Attach a Tile to the backpack and you’ll always know where it is. For help keeping track of your child’s backpack (and anything else) at school, check out these washable labels from Mabel’s Labels.
Ice Cream Fashion
Choosing the perfect outfit is a rite of passage every new school year and for a new kindergartner it is especially important. We make a big deal out of choosing that first day of school outfit and make sure each child picks exactly what they want.

In sticking with our ice cream theme, my five year old picked this adorable Ice Cream Unicorn Shirt. She loved that it combined two of her favorite things — ice cream and unicorns!
We found some amazing ice cream themed fashions, for girls and for boys, so she may be heading to school covered in ice cream cones for the first week. Be sure to look for those on my Idea List on Amazon!
If you want a great photo opportunity that you can look back on at graduation, we love this “class of 2030” shirt for photos.
Don’t forget about the shoes! We are drooling over these Joules Girls Printed Welly Rain Boots and their super cute ice cream print. If you live in an area that gets a lot of rain or snow, these are a must-have. For something better for everyday use, I’m obsessed with these Vans Classic Slip-On in the Glitter Ice Cream print. I wish they had them in my size!
Ice Cream Accessories
Every kindergartner needs to give their school supplies their own unique touch. These ice cream accessories are the perfect way to customize back-to-school supplies and show off your kindergartners special style.
Want to customize your backpack? These MeliMe Fashion Pins feature cute frozen treats and are perfect for pinning on backpack straps to give them a bit of extra style.
Going to kindergarten is a huge milestone, but there are always some nerves that come with that. This year I’m sending my daughter off to school with this Ice Cream Cone Snake Chain Charm Bracelet as a back-to-school gift to remind her that I’m always there for her and I’ll be waiting for her as soon as she gets home.
Ice Cream School Supplies
No back-to-school list would be complete without some amazing school supplies. You could stick with the same old stuff everyone else has or give your school supplies a sweet ice cream themed twist!
Let your child customize her composition books with these Ice Cream Truck Glitter Stickers. She’ll have fun decorating it and it will be easy to keep track of which one is hers!
Ice Cream Enrichment
Learning doesn’t stop when you come home from school. As a mom, it’s my job to make sure we reinforce anything my kids are learning at school during our time at home. With kindergarten, this is especially important since kids are learning foundational skills that they will build on for the rest of their school years.
These super cute popsicle Smart Snacks Alpha Pops from Learning Resources are the perfect way to practice those early reading skills after school (and I really can’t get over how adorable they are).
For pretend play, we absolutely love this Melissa & Doug Wooden Snacks and Sweets Food Cart.
Don’t forget the books! Reading is so important and we try and fit in some extra reading time whenever we can. My kids and I LOVE the Elephant and Piggy books and Should I Share My Ice Cream? fits right in with the rest of our back-to-school theme. Save your place with these super cute and trendy ice cream bookmarks. I may need to snag a few for myself!
Don’t forget about digital books. I’m a huge fan of Fire Kids Edition Tablet, for both reading and educational games.
A new school year is so exciting and I can’t wait for my daughter to get the chance to go to kindergarten and learn. We’ve had so much fun getting ready for her first year of school by gathering together all these fun ice cream themed school supplies and we are both looking forward to an amazing year!
