It’s that time of year again…summer is winding down, and little citizens are getting ready to head back to school. Whether it’s their first year or their fifth, the first day of class is always full of newness and excitement. But that same newness—new faces, new teachers, new schedules, new lessons to learn—can also be a little overwhelming, even a little foreign. What better way to ease those first-day jitters than to gear them up with a cool, new backpack filled with familiar goodies and globally-inspired books?

A Back-To-School Tradition

Kindercone Long ago, German parents told their children they would know it was time to go to school when the fruit was ripe on the Schultütenbaum (school cone tree). The “fruit” was actually  bright paper cones called schultüte (“shool-too-teh”) that parents filled with sweet treats and hung on a metal tree at their child’s school.

More than 200 years later, this fun back-to-school tradition is still going strong. Today’s schultüte (or KinderCone) can be as big as 35 inches tall and contain practical school supplies as well as treats. In honor of this long-standing back-to-school tradition, local Tea retailers are hosting a KinderCone event you won’t want to miss.
