Kidzsack - Review and Giveaway



If you have a kid in school, chances are they are involved in a fundraiser of some sorts. Right now my boys are selling magazines and one of the girls is selling candy bars. I'm all about supporting my children at school, but would like to see some fresh, new ideas added. Kidzsack is a company that I will be presenting to the kids' schools as a fundraiser idea. After having personally seen the product, I think it could possibly be a top seller. Their bags can be customized with school, resort, or company logos.


Using Kidzsacks for fundraiser potential is just one idea. They'd also make great gifts for birthdays and Christmas, or even as an activity project. The Kidzsack is an eco-friendly backpack. The fabric is made of recovered cotton scraps and recycled polyester made from plastic soda bottles. With its included markers, kids can color in the design. The Kidzsack can be washed, then recolored again and again.


Emma received a Kidzsack in the sea life design. She spent time meticulously coloring in the lines to bring color to the design. Once she was finished and happy with the end result, she put some of her things she usually carries around into the bag and went around sporting it on her back.

After a couple of days, Emma wanted to color the design all over again so I put it in the wash. Being extra careful, I washed it by itself. I didn't want to take the chance of colors bleeding onto my other clothing. When the bag came out of the wash, it was mainly free of the existing colors and I laid it on the counter to dry. Once I made sure it was completely dry, I handed it over to Emma who again colored the bag. She really likes that she can color it over and over again. The drawstring opening ensures that her belongings won't easily fall out. Emma can often be seen carrying her Kidzsack on her back.

Win It!

One person will win a Kidzsack in the sports design.
