And now they’re going to be in their last year of elementary school … grown-up fifth-graders!
Each year, the schoolwork gets a little more challenging, and it seems like my sons need more and more items for school. I was at the store this morning, and I picked up some uniform shirts and pants for the boys (love those clearance sales). I also checked out the school supplies that were already out to see what items are popular this year. One of the items I saw on the shelves of my local CVS was a Master Lock combination lock! Master Lock products will definitely come in handy as my boys get older and start toting computers, using lockers, and maybe even riding their bikes to school. Laptop locks, combination locks, and bike locks from Master Lock will be a must-have!
I am a member of Master Lock’s Live Secure Safety Squad, and they recently sent me a combination lock that’s ideal for the younger set, too. It’s called the 1535DWD Set-Your-Own Combination Lock.
I love this item for children because they only need to memorize a word, instead of a number, to open the combination! There are numerous four-digit words that can be selected, such as PLAY. There’s also a handy list of suggested words in the packaging. And this lock has a retail price of only $10.40!
If you’d rather your child learn with numbers instead of words, then get the 1535D Set-Your-Own Combination Lock instead.
Just like the lock with words, kids can create their own four-digit combination. This is a great way to teach them how to memorize their house number, birth year, or other important number! And I love how both the 1535DWD and the 1535D come in a variety of colors so each child in the family can select his or her own special lock.
In addition to providing us with some terrific locks, Master Lock is celebrating the back-to-school season with two fun events!
