When my kids were in daycare, and later, in elementary school, I had to label everything. Bags, bottles, sippy cups, jackets, a change of clothes, notebooks, binders, folders - everything has to be labeled. I bought permanent markers to write my daughter's name on everything, but quickly got tired of how it washed off her bottles, bowls, and cups.
I searched online for the answer and found a great company in Canada who solved my problem. I ordered a pack of labels for my daughter and one for my then newborn son. That was 7 years ago - I've been using Lovable Labels to label their gear ever since. The labels stick on your kids stuff and they don't come off until you want them to. No more losing things or repeatedly labeling things. We still use our labels, for everything from their water bottles to their iPod headphones (to tell them apart). This lets me know who is leaving their headphones laying around on the coffee table.
I was recently sent a pack of Lovable Labels new "Book Worm" labels, just in time for the new school year. This pack of 36 labels is meant for labeling books, but you could easily use them to label binders and notebooks.
We have a family library of books, but each child also has their own special books. Alex loved being able to label all her books! I'll probably have to order labels for each of the other kids once they realize her books have personalized labels inside!
The newest products from Lovable Labels include address labels, Date It Labels for labeling things like food in your freezer and Toddler Toes. I love the Toddler Toes - they go inside each of your toddler's shoes to help your child learn their right from left foot and the label also provides a place for your cel phone number to be printed in case of an emergency. Whatever your labeling needs, Lovable Labels has you covered!
