One thing you notice when your little one starts school, is how you are required to label everything they own!
Everything from plastic lunch containers, drink bottles, jackets, shoes and backpacks has to be marked with your child’s name. At first I thought a black permanent marker would do the trick, and for backpacks and lunchboxes it does, but not everything else. The permanent marker comes off plastic containers after one or two washes, and how do you properly label shoes???
Enter Stuck On You Labels. This company has made labeling easy and fun. You can buy a customized set of plastic or fabric labels, with your child’s name and even a fun design for $25-$30 for 50, enough to probably last them through elementary school. Best thing is that they stay put and are dishwasher/microwave safe. It's the perfect solution for plastic lunch containers and bottles. I choose a cute bird design called 'Spring Nest' that my daughter loves.
Another smart option is their shoe labels which are also customizable. It's almost like a fabric sticker that you place right under the heel. Fabric iron on labels are also on option for jackets and hoodies but since I will likely be passing a lot of clothes down to my younger children, I would first like to check with the company to see how easily (if possible at all) these iron on labels are to remove. If they are removable somehow, I think these would be a great idea for coats, hoodies, even inside of hats and mittens Anything your child has to remove and store during school is always more likely to get misplaced.
