37 School Supplies You Can Buy Online on Amazon

Do you want to buy your kids school supplies online? Here is a list of school supply essentials you can get on Amazon.

Sometimes it can be challenging to find all the school supplies you need in-store, (especially if you procrastinate and wait until the end of summer like I do to do back-to-school shopping.)

On the other hand, you may simply prefer to shop online for your child’s school supplies when they or going back to school, or to replenish supplies after the school year is started. (How our kids can lose all 5 packs of pencils we get them at the beginning of the year beats me!)

Regardless of if you’re sending your kids to school, homeschooling or remote schooling, we’ve got you covered with our online list of school supplies below. Each supply has one or more links to where you can find it on Amazon.

This post contains referral or affiliate links to helpful products/services we use and/or trust and we may receive a commission or referral fee at no extra cost to you, if you choose to purchase or sign up through one of these links. See our full Disclosure policies here on our Terms of Use page.

Back to School Supply Bundle Kit

If you don’t want to buy all of your child’s school supplies individually, a bundle may be an easier option. And then if there’s anything you need additionally, you can always just get the extra few items.

Supplies Desk Organizer

For children who are doing some remote learning or who homeschool already, this can be helpful in keeping some of their school supplies organized and easier to find. It can also be placed on a child’s desk in school.

There are, of course, regular yellow #2 pencils, there are mechanical pencils, and there are stacking point/multi-point pencils.

(Note that some schools are particular about the type of pencils students use in class.)

Generally students are encouraged to use pens with blue ink or black ink.

I like these highlighters because they come in a pack of different colors and they’re clickable, (so you don’t need to worry about your kids losing the caps.)

I honestly haven’t figured out why our kids’ schools always had these on the supply list, but sometimes they are, so that’s why I included the link above.

Devices for Schooling

Our kids use Chromebooks, (although thankfully for us their school automatically provides them with one.)

Some parents may get their kids a tablet or laptop to use as well.

Note: I just want to mention here a reminder that whenever we provide our children with technology, we want to be careful to monitor them online including what they can access and who they communicate with. It’s essential to set clear guidelines on how they can and cannot use technology.

This is both for the sake of protecting them from dangers online, and also so they are not getting distracted from doing their work during their school hours.

So those are 37+ school supplies you can buy online. Making sure your child has what they need during this school year sets the stage for them to complete their work successfully.

Are you struggling to keep up with your current schedule, while keeping your kids lives on track? Grab our free sample schedule worksheets here. These are a great resource for parents to organize their day in a realistic way. I based these on a method that has helped me manage my time & home as a mom and stepmom of 4 kids total.

P.S. If I missed any school supplies that are on your child’s list, please comment and let me know so I can add it to the post.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!
