Like shopping for a fall wardrobe to stave off the sadness of summer's end, getting really great school supplies can help get kids pumped for heading back into class in September.

Check out these fun school supplies to get kids back to class with some enthusiasm. Have some finds of your own? Let us know in the comments below.
