Amazon School Supply List (The Best School Supplies on Amazon for 2021)

School still looks different this year. Your children will still need to be prepared and these are the best school supplies on Amazon for 2021.

Even though most schools are going to be back in person, I know you feel overwhelmed imagining what the year will be like.

As a former teacher who had a coupon blog job for three years, I’m an expert in both school supplies and deals.  Knowing the difference in quality and price points is my superpower – haha!

Fortunately, you can head to Amazon with your school supply list. But you don’t want to overpay.

I wanted to take searching for the deals off your plate. So I found the best school supplies on Amazon for you.

Does Amazon have School Supplies?

Yes! You can find everything you need for school on Amazon.

There are loads of school supplies available. However, they aren’t always the best deals.

So weigh your need for convenience versus savings when you buy school supplies on Amazon.

Crayola Ultraclean Broadline Bold Markers (10 Count) – $2.49

EXPO Dry Erase Markers, Fine Point, Black, 4-Count – $3.46

TICONDEROGA Pencils 18 ct, – $3.79

Please save your sanity and spend the extra $2 on Ticonderoga over generic pencils.  These are presharpened.  You’ll save $2 worth of time sharpening the first week!

Elmer’s Disappearing Purple School Glue, Washable, 12 Pack – $3.92
Like construction paper, your school might not request glue sticks this year. It’s still a good idea to have it on hand for projects.

Westcott, 5’’ Pointed Scissors, Assorted, 6 Pack – $4.17


Expo Low-Odor Dry Erase Markers, 4 ct – $4.49

Dry Erase Board-$5.21
If your child is doing online school, this is going to be helpful to interact with the teachers on Zoom class or Google Meets.  It will also be useful in the long run to track assignments or even grocery lists when COVID is under control.

Expo 80653 Low-Odor Dry Erase Set, $6.66
This set also includes the eraser and board cleaner.

Elmer’s Disappearing Purple School Glue, 30 Pack – $6.99
I ordered this pack for my children.  Between two children, we will use 30 glue sticks this year.  This is the same Target’s price ($0.50 for a two pack) but will less packaging!

Dot Stickers– 2240 ct,  3/4″ – $8.99
I know dot stickers are not on your school supply list.  But if you have a child from 4-8 years old, grab the free printable lowercase letters notebook.

Use these dot stickers for math problems for bigger kids (for example, show 3X4 in stickers).  For younger children, write the letters on them and have them match to the letters on a piece of paper!

Headphones $12.99
My daughter has used these exact headphones for over a year.  They’ve worked just fine.

Disposable Children ‘s Mask – 50 Count 3 Ply- $13.99


AmazonBasics Multipurpose Copy Printer Paper 5 ream case – $24.99
This works out to $5 a ream (500 sheets so 2500 total) which is competitive with other retailers.  If you think you’ll be doing a lot of printing this school year or your children like to draw on white paper, snag this while it lasts!
