We Found the 13 Cutest (& Most Practical) Pencil Cases For This School Year

Because a school year without a new pencil case is like Bravo without Andy Cohen.

By Katie Leahy

Call me nostalgic but I still remember the excitement each school year, starting in Kindergarten, when it came time to pick out my new pencil box for the year (almost as exciting as picking out a Trapper Keeper!). These days I still enjoy the process, but as a mom I'm now looking for something cute enough that it makes a statement, but also is tough enough that it won’t fall apart come January.  

Below are my favorites. Thirteen of the best pencil cases on the market that will surely make your kids' classmates wish they hadn’t settled with a Ziploc bag to do the job. From sharks and monsters to girly fuzz to sleek roll ups, your student will find something below to keep their markers or favorite pens organized straight through June!
