If you have been visiting my blog, you know I love labeling everything. It not only helps everyone else know where things go, but it also helps when anyone loses an item.
Recently, I became an affiliate with Mabel's Labels, a fun site for making labels for my kid's lunch bags, clothing, bag tags, safety, and household tags, etc... They have so much to choose from on their site; I didn't know where to begin.
I picked these cute labels to use for my books for when I lend books and containers out to friends and family. Aren't they cute? I like them.
These "Personalized Name Stickers" are great for kids too. Here is my review of their site.
- They are waterproof and suitable for lunch containers, bottles, toys, sports equipment, etc...
- They give you a place to customize the style and the picture on the sticker. They have a few fonts to choose from. And, of course, you can customize the name on the label.
- They also offer safety labels like bands for kids with their name and information on it. So cool! Plus a bunch of other types of tags for different areas of the home.
- They offer starter labels for daycare.
- Personal tags can be made too.
Now, that your order has been delivered, here are tips on how to make the most of labeling your kids' school stuff.
- Buy waterproof labels. Not all tags are equal. Look for labels that withstand water or washing.
- Pick an area that doesn't get touched often, like the bottom of a bottle, the inside of a lunch bag and the inside of a planner.
- When adding the sticker to the item, make sure you rub the top of the label continuously, especially the edges for at least 10 or 15 seconds.
- If you are labeling clothing, buying clothing labels, and sewing them will work best. They wash well, and you don't need to worry about the tags rubbing off after several washes.

I hope this helps you and your child minimize the lost items this year. Have a great school year!
