Now that summer has officially passed, students around the country are getting back into the school mentality. One of the most important things any student can do when going back, is to ensure they are prepared. By making one’s own smart backpack, one will be prepared for whatever occurs and be able to handle it with ease. This easy DIY project lets people get creative with design and customization, to ensure their backpack is perfect for them.
- Choosing a backpack for one’s child is about more than finding a cute design
- Choosing the right straps can prevent neck pain, shoulder pain, muscle aches, and arm numbness
- A child’s backpack should weigh no more than 10 to 20 percent of their body weight
“A chest or weight strap can help redistribute the pressure across the body, and be sure to sit up straight while wearing one, even when sitting down.”
