Ready for Back to School? Don’t lose another item!

Everyone who has sent a child to daycare, school and/or camps knows that regardless of how distinctive the hat or other clothing item is, the teacher or camp counsellor will not remember who it belongs to if it gets separated from your child.  Inevitably something gets lost or you have to search through the pile of items in the lost and found to retrieve the item.  That’s why I went label happy!

A few months ago, I was contacted by Sticker Kid and was given samples of labels to try.  So that’s exactly what I did.  It’s taken me a few months to write this post as I truly wanted to put them to the test.  So I am happy to report that Ella and I have put them to the test for the last four months (at school and many camps).
