Getting ready for back to school can get pretty costly between buying new school uniforms or clothes, school supplies, gear and school fees, so I put together a collection of 12 cute and stylish, tween girl backpacks for under $20 that won’t break the bank.
Bright colors and fun patterns are popular with elementary school girls. They like stuff that is bold, stands out and makes a loud statement. Peace signs, skulls, hearts, gummy bears, flowers, butterflies, rainbow colors, polka dots, plaid, geometric shapes, chevron stripes and animal prints are some of the designs that appeal to a tween girls unique sense of style.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money on a fancy backpack for kids in elementary school because they shouldn’t be carrying much more in their pack than a lunch, water bottle and a book or two at this age. I usually buy two inexpensive backpacks at the beginning of the school year, which costs the same as buying a single, more expensive pack. If your tweens are anything like mine, the chances of your child’s backpack having a lunch or drink spilled inside, dragged through a mud puddle or left at the soccer field are fairly high and having a second backpack comes in pretty handy.

When choosing a backpack for a tween, you should consider what she will be carrying back and forth from home to school on a daily basis. For the younger grades, you need a backpack that will fit a lunch, water bottle and library book. For the older grades, they will need a roomier backpack to carry a lunch and water, textbooks and in some cases, a laptop or tablet.
I hope you enjoyed this selection of tween girl backpacks, all priced under $20 and find something you like. Have an awesome school year!
