This is our first year of school for my oldest. My emotions, of course, are conflicting. One moment I’m excited to spend some QT with my youngest and at other times I’m worried that my preschool aged son is not ready for school just yet. One thing I do not have to worry about is him losing his belongings (or insisting that another child’s crayon is his) because of these great labels from Bright Star Kids.
I was offered the opportunity to review their School Labels. While the Name Labels and Kid Labels would have been equally appropriate, I figured we were headed to school so this label pack would be perfect! Our pack included iron on labels, book labels, round labels, small labels and large labels; pretty much everything we’ll need to make sure my son has his school items identified properly!
My son is a HUGE construction truck junkie, so I chose blue labels that featured a dump truck. His name is prominently displayed and the dump truck is there as well so that as he’s learning to identify his own name he can use the truck as another clue that the item belongs to him.
We also have a Truck Bag Tag that I have attached to his new backpack. Other back to school items we are using the labels for include: crayons, safety scissors, sippy cup and his shoes. I’ll iron on some labels on the clothing he uses the most with my focus being on his pants as he is still potty training. I don’t know why, but I’m convinced he’ll misplace his pants if he has an accident!
Additionally, I’ve also found the labels useful for those toy wars between my sons. Since they are so close in age, they always want to play with the same toy and often we have resorted to buying two of the same just to appease them. Of course, the battle them becomes, who’s toy is this? One great way to keep the peace is by labeling their belongings at home. I’ve already done so on the plastic Adirondack chairs we have for them, and it has helped lessen the insanity when when want to sit down!
I have found that I can peel the labels on and off with ease, and the stickiness is just fine. I’ve had to redo my application to my son’s sippy cup a few times to get the label on properly due to the curve of the cup, and it worked (stuck) just fine.
Overall, I was quite happy with the labels and am excited for school to begin for my son to use them daily!
