Let’s face it, any kid attending school in person this year is going to need face masks and lots of them. But, as simple as these tools may appear, they can be costly. Especially when you’re doing your best to keep a stack of them clean so that your child has a fresh mask for each day. Carter’s is making this effort much more affordable by offering this darling 3-pack of dino-themed masks for only $6. Made of double layer cotton jersey, these soft masks come with stretchy ear straps that can be adjusted to fit. And, best news, they’re machine washable.
2 Toddler Socks
Toddlers are constantly bopping around crawling and walking here and there. And if all that action is happening outside, you’re likely putting them in shoes. But tiny feet need cushion too, which means you have to keep plenty of equally tiny socks on hand. But who wants to pay big bucks for such a small amount of fabric? Not a problem at Carter’s. You can snag this 3-pack for a song. A soft cotton blend means their tender tootsies will be kept comfortable, but they won’t slip and slide when they ditch their shoes thanks to no-skid soles. Plus, the cute design doesn’t hurt either.
3 Cotton Briefs
Sending kids off to school in fresh new clothes is important from top to bottom and this 5-pack of undies will help you do just that. Made out of soft cotton, these briefs come with a stretchy waistband to make them extra comfortable and, critically, easy to pull off and on. Another comfort feature: there are no tags, so no distracting opportunities for itchiness. Silly prints of pizza, pop, and video game consoles will make these winners with kids. Made just like regular underwear with a fly slit makes using the restroom easy to manage. But best of all, these are machine washable to keep them fresh and clean.
4 Bike Shorts
Bike shorts are such a great kid necessity of which you’ll want to keep a stack on hand. Easy to pull on, stretchy for active movement, and soft on little legs, there’s really nothing to not like about them. So you might want to pick up a few at Carter’s & Osh Kosh Labor Day sale. This pair hits mid thigh and comes in five colors. An elastic waistband ensures they’ll stay up even on tiny buns, but they won’t shrink thanks to the 93% cotton, 7% elastane jersey fabric blend. Playful and comfortable, these shorts are ideal for back to school and a bargain at that.
5 Cotton Undies
You can get children’s underwear at many retail outlets. However, finding kid’s underwear that’s as cute as it is affordable is less easy to do, especially high quality undies that will hold up to many washes. These undies are a win/win. An even better reason to get these from the Carter’s & Osh Kosh Labor Day sale, they have a no-pinch elastic waist, a tag-free label, and added stretch so your kiddo can run and jump and play wedgie-free. One of many 3-pack underwear options at Carter’s, if this isn’t the design of choice for your child, there are plenty of other choices to choose from.
6 Long Sleeve Onesies
In the words of
Game of Thrones, “winter is coming.” And if you have a baby, you know what that means: time to grab some snuggly clothing asap. Babies, even on hot days, typically require a few extra layers. That’s why this 3-pack of body suits is such a boon. You get three super soft, cute snap front onesies for less than $20. It’s hard to find one cute body suit for that price, let alone three! Each are made of ribbed cotton and come in striped pink, polka dot teal, and red floral, a lovely collection that you can pop your babe in (and keep an extra in the diaper bag on reserve) for any event. 7 Cable Knit Tights
Baby tights are, hands down, one of the cutest things you can put a tiny tot in. But the timeline in which they can wear them is so fleeting, no parent wants to spend big bucks on a pair of tights. Paying $7, however, feels like a reasonable amount. These are super stretchy, so you can get your chunky monkey’s legs in them, but they also come with a stretchy waistband so they’ll stay in place once you’ve actually gotten them on. Available in grey, black, blue, and pink, these tights come in one size made for children that wear sizes 2T-4T.
8 Baby Sneakers
Want to protect your baby’s feet? Here’s a hot item to get from the Carter’s & Osh Kosh Labor Day sale. These chambray shoes are soft but snug. A cushy bottom supports their developing feet while a hidden piece of elastic under the faux eyelets helps to keep these tiny sneaks on. Locker loops on the back can be used to hang them up after use. And if you want to ensure you always have a back up if one sneaker goes missing (which, let’s be honest, is not an improbable scenario), these shoes are so inexpensive, you might splurge and buy two matching pairs so you always have a back up.
9 2-Piece Shirt/Leggings Set
What parent doesn’t love a matching clothing set? It’s the ultimate BOGO deal that not only spares your pocketbook, it saves you time shopping. “Look, honey. This shirt and leggings are sold together!” And this 2-piece set is great because it comes with Carter’s super stretchy, comfy leggings and a twill top. The blousy designs means there’s no additional pressure on the child’s waist beyond their elastic waistband. In addition, the top means a kid can move around without restriction. Appropriate for school or a family outing, this outfit (which, it should be noted, includes a little bow on the top) is an all around must-have.
10 Terry Joggers
Keeping a child’s closet stocked with durable pants is a no-brainer. Whether it’s climbing trees or playing on the playground, you want them to wear trousers that can move and stretch but hold up when they take a tumble. So when you look to get items from Carter’s & Osh Kosh Labor Day sale, don’t forget to grab a couple French terry joggers. These are better than just simple sweats because they have a ribbed ankle so there’s no need to fear tripping over pants. Plus, you won’t have to worry about your child’s pants sliding down either. a drawstring waist band makes sure the pants stay in place.
