I can’t believe that summer is more then half way over already! The kids have 4 more weeks until they will be force to wake up early, eat breakfast, and grudgingly make their way to their respective schools. With a 15, 13, and 7 year old we have had our share of mix ups and mishaps over the years. I can’t tell you how many times my children have come home without their jacket, the wrong bed sheet (from pre-school), or school books that were not theirs.
Where’s Your Homework?
One of the main reason’s for so many mishaps is everyone shops at the same stores. With only a selected amount of products that leaves children often with the same lunchbox, backpack, or school supplies. I remember one evening I picked up my youngest son from aftercare when he was in elementary school. We got home and I asked him if he had any homework, it was at this time that my son informed me that he did not have his own backpack. I child that had left before him and grabbed his backpack by accident, so he brought home the other child’s backpack so he could switch with him the following day.
Not having anything to really label the backpack with we ended up adding a key chain to the outside of the backpack so his would stand out. The boys have lost so many jackets because without a name on them they just end up in lost in found. Had a name been on the inside the school staff could have located them and sent it to their class room. So when Honey started school the first thing I did was buy her a personalized lunchbox that came with her name on it. This however, is not always cost effective, that is why it is great to get ready to back to school with Bright Star Kids labels.
Bright Star School Label
They have a label for everything, check out this great school labeling kit, definitely gives you a leg up on making sure everything you send to school makes its way back home. When you think of labels you probably think of stickers that are sure to come off in the next wash. Or maybe you are wondering how you can label backpacks and clothing. Stickers are definitely not going to be the way to go. Bright Star has 2 main types of labels – stick-on and iron-on.
Bright Star Kids Labels
*Stick-on labels are extremely durable, so they’ll withstand the wear and tear of dishwashers. They’re 100% waterproof and scratch resistant. They’ll stick to most kinds of plastics and will stay stuck for years. When you’re ready to remove them, simply peel off and no residue will be left behind.
*Iron-on labels are quick and easy to pop on to all your kids clothing. They will stay stuck in the toughest washing machine and clothes dryer cycle, and will still look great in years to come.
- Invest in labels and don’t wait until something comes up missing. Label anything that you want to make sure makes it way back home.
- To save us headaches in the morning I have the kids (well when they were younger) pick out their clothes the night before. This wards off any fighting in the morning of what to wear because they made the choice themselves the night before.
- If you pack your child’s lunch leave them by the door and let them grab them on the way out. This will cut down on you accidentally mixing up lunchboxes.
- When the kids get into the swing of things create a calendar to record any important due dates or events so you won’t miss them. Especially the ones when the kids are suppose to wear a certain color or clothing to school.
- Make sure backpacks are ready the night before with books and homework. (If I had a nickel for every time my son left his homework at home!)
