Did you miss your ordering deadline or forget anything on your back to school list?


With our SchoolKidz School Supply Kit Program now closed, the question of “Does my child have everything they need for this school year?” is a common one to ask yourself. If you missed your school’s Teacher Tailored School Supply Kit Program deadline, don’t worry! Perhaps you may even be looking to stock up on extra supplies for back to school or when the 2nd half of the school year starts. Either way, our BuildAKit.net website is the perfect solution to help fulfill your back to school shopping needs.

BuildAKit.net and the new 1-2-3 Kit Builder!

New for this year, BuildAKit.net has revealed its easy to use 1-2-3 Kit Builder. This allows you to build your own school supply kit by simply browsing through the items available on BuildAKit and choosing your desired quantities from each category. Also, you custom kit will come with the same great customization that is offered through the SchoolKidz Teacher Tailored School Supply Kit Program.

How to use the 1-2-3 Builder

Using the 1-2-3 Kit Builder from BuildAKit.net is simple and easy!

Begin by entering you child’s information (Name, School Name, and Grade) into the text fields as in the image to the left. These fields are required in order to get your customized branding (kit label plus 40 additional student labels) for your kit.

Now that you have entered in all of your child’s info, select the default packaging option of: BAKALL.
