The TM Edit: Promotional Items To Help Educate Kids At Home

When it comes to educating children from the comfort of their own home, there's one thing your customers will definitely need: the right equipment.

Total Merchandise is delighted to offer an array of promotional products for learning from home. Whether you're gifting these to employees that have had to make the change to home schooling or to your customers, one thing is for certain: these promotional items will help make anyone feel that bit more confident at tackling home education!

Chance are you run or work for a company that's keen to show its support of children and parents who are starting home education; equally, you might work an academic or educational-leaning establishment that wants to help make learning from home that bit easier. Either way, we've got you and your brand (and your customers, for that matter) sorted.

From tech must-haves - such as promotional headphones for watching educational videos online - to branded seed packets for home-held science lessons, we've got all the basics that could possibly be needed.

Top Tips For Successful Home Schooling

We've rounded up a few handy tips and tricks that will make home education that bit easier - for both children and their parents! Feel free to forward these on to colleagues who may be dipping a toe into the world of learning-at-home.

First of all: stick to a schedule. Try to replicate the timetable your children would usually have at school. For example, start with P.E. in the morning (Joe Wicks is currently offering P.E. classes on his YouTube channel at 9am from Monday-Friday!) and then build up other 'lessons' and 'classes' throughout the day, factoring in breaks and lunchtime. 

Where can I find teaching inspiration? There are plenty of online resources that can help point you in the right direction when it comes to working out what your child should be learning about. Useful resources include:

  • Twinkl (which covers KS1 - KS4 as well as other curriculums)
  • BBC Bitesize (includes a wide range of topics targeted at children at primary and secondary schools, as well as 16+)
  • White Rose Maths (which makes mathematics that bit more palatable for older and younger children)

Set a daily target or goal. This doesn't just apply to children - this can be useful for parents, too! Write down daily goals relating to learning outcomes in order to assure they can be achieved. Then at the end of the day, week or month, look back and see how much of these targets both you and your child have achieved - this can offer a real confidence boost.

Promotional Items To Help Educate Children From Home

Total Merchandise is here to help you, your employees and your customers when it comes to nailing homeschooling with a wide range of helpful products. 

From basic stationery essentials to subject-specific must-haves, we have a wide range of branded merchandise available that will help make learning from home that bit easier for everyone involved.

Read on to discover some of our A*-worthy items for homeschooling and don't forget to explore our full range of promotional products for educating children at home, too.

1. Whip Up A Storm In Cookery Lessons With Promotional Kitchenware

Being at home is the perfect opportunity for children to take their food tech lessons one step further and cook at home. Having the right basic utensils is very important when it comes to cooking up a proverbial storm, so give your customers a flying (or should that read frying?) start by providing them with branded kitchen utensils.

Our 30cm Wooden Spoons, for example, are perfect for all kinds of recipes: from cakes to curries and sauces to soups, a branded wooden spoon is an essential kitchen item. Either printed or hot stamped with your company logo, your brand will be noticed with every single use.

Complete the giveaway with our classic matching 30cm Wooden Spatula, which can be printed with your corporate design for a soupçon more brand exposure with every use.

While we're on the subject of cookery: be sure to check out our colourful printed aprons to make sure enthusiastic chefs can keep their outfits clean - available to order in as low as just 50 units, it offers prominent visibility for your branding that can be worn time after time. 

If children across the country learn just one thing from their at-home food tech lessons, it's this: timing is key, with an eye on the clock helping to make the difference between undercooked and overdone, 'nearly ready' and burnt, edible and, er, less so. With that in mind, help children across the UK learn the important skill of timekeeping when cooking with our Magnetic Cooking Timers, which feature your logo printed in up to four colours, sitting pretty beneath the display. 

2. Get Creative With Promotional Art Products

Taking part in art-based activities is always fun but did you know that it plays a bigger role than just pleasure - children can actually learn and develop skills through art. So, when it comes to home education, why not gift your customers and colleagues with the items their little ones will need to partake in art lessons?

Our printed Art Sets are the perfect promotional item to allow your target audience to get creative. Each set includes a pencil sharpener, ten colouring pencils and a watercolour paint pallet with a paintbrush, all packaged in a card case with a novel shaped cutout.

For a simpler take on art time, look no further than our Colouring Pencil Picture Packs. Presented neatly in a transparent box printed with your logo, each set includes eight assorted colouring pencils and 20 colouring-in sheets. If you're looking for an item that generates positive recognition of your business whilst also bringing fun and joy to your clients, look no further than these simple colouring sets.

3. Let's Get Physical With Branded Sports Items

According to guidelines, it's important that children and adolescents get at least 60 minutes of physical exercise a day, especially when learning from home. Make it that bit easier for kids across the country to work up a sweat with the help of must-have promotional sports items.

Skipping is a fun yet effective form of exercise and with these printed skipping ropes, you'll place your logo in the hands of your customers - quite literally! Complete with a step counter in the handle, our branded skipping ropes are great for setting daily step goals. On a similar note, our promotional Clip On Pedometers are also great for encouraging kids and teens to get moving, too.

It doesn't end there, of course; we also have promotional miniature footballs, branded flyers, mini fitness expanders... As well as a whole range of branded fitness accessories, too. 

Keeping hydrated is especially important during exercise - and as a general rule of thumb, children should be drinking anywhere between 1.1litres to 1.7 litres per day. With that in mind, help your customers get their daily water intake with these Finger Grip Sports Bottles 500ml. With its ergonomic grooves making it comfortable to hold, take your pick from a range of bright colours that is sure to draw attention to your brand. 

4. Put Your Thinking Caps On With Printed Items For Mathematics

These Full Image Calculators are sure to be appreciated by children and parents alike! Each calculator is printed with your custom design in stunning full colour for a completely bespoke and eye-catching finish.

Our Plastic 30cm Rulers are a great addition to pencil cases. Available in a range of more than ten bright colours and customised with your company logo (which is printed in up-to full colour), they are sure to draw attention to your brand with every single use.

Our Spectrum Pencils are also great for using in maths lessons, with the rubber on the end of each of these promotional pencils making erasing any mistake (small or big) fuss-free. Starting at just 8p per unit, they're the perfect cost-effective item for learning from home.
