Bright Ideas to make going 'Back to School' more colourful!

Colourful Back To School Essentials

It's been many years since I last went Back to School (you really don't need to know exactly how many!) but every year as September approaches, I get excited for the start of the new school term. I'm not sure whether it's new shoes and stationery, or the return to routine that comes with a new timetable, or just the changing of the season - but I have extremely fond feelings for this time of year!

Now I'm (allegedly) a fully fledged grown-up, my diary runs a little differently and September is far more likely to signal the start of my long holiday rather than the end, but I thought it still might be fun to round up my favourite colourful back-to-school supplies...

So here's 12 of the best rainbow themed back to school essentials that will help to add an extra splash of colour to the new school term:
