BTS: 7 ways to personalize kids belongings! August 31 2016, 0 Comments


I waited as long as I could to start posting BTS tips as admitting the close of summer is always tough, especially for a mom who grew up with summer all year long (cue tiny violin), to close up these carefree months.

Some of your kiddies may have started school as NYC district is quite late in comparison to other states but what is universal is that kids lose a ton of stuff every school year. This can not only be frustrating but costly. Here are 7 ways you can tag your little ones daily essentials and (hopefully) spend less time at the Lost & Found table.

1. Letter Adhesive: Add a letter sticker to every day items like lunch boxes and water boxes.

2. Alphabet Letter Stickers: Use these fun stickers for folders...pencil cases. Bando Sticker Packet.

3. Patches: Last school year I saw many duplicate backpacks - patches allow your child to put their own creative stamp on their carryall. Hello Patch via State Bags.

4. Personalized Labels: These cool labels are from Kidecals. I was able to pick the colors I wanted for this particular design. I also swap the text of a phone number for a classroom number, as this is where my child seems to lose all his things.

5. Fabric or Permanent Markers: Sometimes I just give in and write on the tags of the clothing pieces as the lost of items especially during winter is mind boggling. 

6. No- Iron Labels: Super simple. Write your kiddos name or your info and press iron on. This is perfect when your little one is in daycare and clothes are changed daily. Avery No Iron Labels.

7. Washi Tape: I use this crafting tape on field trips, after school snacks and on anything last minute that comes up such as potluck class parties. Neon Solid Washi Tape via Papersource
