With only a few weeks of school let and a rapidly-filling schedule, Big Sister E is already turning into one of those kids who is going to be jetting all over town to one activity after another all summer.
And she is thrilled about it!
Yes, she wants to do tee ball and yes, she wants to do swimming and yes, she wants to attend her preschool's summer camp... the list just seems to keep growing and growing.
So what does that mean for me? As well as having to keep track of where and when she needs to be somewhere, I'm going to need to stay well-organized so that she shows up with her glove to tee ball and not to Art in the Park. Because as much as I'm sure she could turn said glove into an art project... it's probably not the best idea.
For me, one of the best ways to keep away the stress and anxiety of not only packing but of my obsession with not losing things, is to have each and every item well-labeled. I want her name on every single thing so that the chances of swim goggles, a hat or even a dirty sock getting returned to its rightful place are increased tremendously.
That's where I.D. Me Labels steps in and takes over, making the entire process quick, easy, and fun.
Created in part due to the fact that millions of personal effects (clothes, electronics, camping equipment, etc) wind up in lost-and-founds nationally, I.D. Me Labels fills the necessity that parents, daycares, schools, and more have for labeled items.
The variety of fun, bright kids' labels that they offer come in various sizes, shapes, and colors to make identifying the rightful owners of just about anything quick and easy. Whether for the child to recognize their own name (and the colors and icon that they have chosen) or for a teacher or counselor to be able to reunite lost items later on, these labels end up being nearly indispensable.
Having been introduced to I.D. Me Labels back in 2009 and instantly loving the way that the high quality, durable, waterproof labels came in handy for Little Sister B's belongings, I knew that the Camp Labels would be perfect for Big Sister E and her summer adventures.
Simple to use and easy to apply, these labels for camp are just the thing for everything from flashlights to toiletries to electronics to gear to clothes. The rugged, strong and fade-resistant quality that I.D. Me Labels is known for adheres to almost any surface imaginable and will endure all weather conditions.
No matter if Big Sister E is grabbing her lunchbox, her raincoat or her tennis shoes, I know that her belongings will always make it back to us!
I.D. Me Labels really does have an option for everything and I love the way that the Camp Labels offers a variety so that you are prepared for them all. Their Large Round Labels are perfect for Big Sister E's thermos or water bottle, the Rectangle Labels are now on all of her sporting goods, and the Clothing Labels are, of course, on the tags of just about her entire wardrobe.
I don't have to worry about removing the labels or having them fall off in the dishwasher, microwave or washing machine and applying them takes only seconds per item... and there is never a thought about having to sew or iron anything (which would never end up happening around here).
I keep the entire pack in our kitchen drawer so that any time a new pair of shoes or sunglasses is brought out, I can grab and attach two of the Shoe Labels or one of the Streamline Labels in only a moment or two.
Big Sister E loves her labels, which isn't a surprise considering she was able to customize each detail of them precisely how she wanted. With over 50 icons and nine different color options, I had assumed that the decision-making process would be time-consuming for a 4-year-old.
However, after immediately deciding that the labels would be dark blue (her favorite color), it actually didn't take long before she pointed directly at the stars icon and declared it the one.
What child, parent, teacher or coach wouldn't be happy to have personal belongings labeled in such a bright, colorful and personalized way? The reduction in the amount of loss and confusion is huge compared to the small investment in a package of labels - individual types can be purchased separately or there are package options for Daycare Labels, School Labels or even important Medical Alert Labels for important safety precautions.
The Camp Labels pack comes with everything you need to prepare for the upcoming summer months and retails for $43. With their amazingly fast turnaround times (orders are processed within 48 hours - you'll be shocked at how quickly these labels show up at your door!) now is a great time to ensure that you and your child are ready for everything that the summer months will entail.
You can find much more information and ordering options for I.D. Me Labels on their website as well as connecting with them Facebook and Twitter.
