If your kids are anything like mine, they tend to lose a lot of stuff. They drop jackets, caps, water bottles and other things by the wayside, and once they're out of sight, they're out of mind. My kids move on to the next thing, and their stuff is forgotten. And if you're anything like I am, it drives you mad!! I'm constantly reminding my kids that I paid tons of money for their gear and threatening to make them pay for it out of their allowance. Of course, they couldn't afford it, so the next best thing for my sanity is to label everything to lessen the chance that my kids' stuff stays lost forever. I label everything -- not just clothing, but also pencils, scissors, reusable containers (and their lids!), etc..
Which brings me to Mabels Labels. I've been a fan of their labels for a long time -- which is exactly how long their labels last. I can't think of a time when I've had to peel off a fading or cracked Mabels Labels label and replaced it with a new one. This summer, Mabels Labels is offering 2 new combo packs specifically designed for kids' summer camp needs:
Day Camp Label Pack
Contains 16 Mini Custom Name Stickers, 21 Tag Mates Stick On Clothing Labels, 2 Custom Shoe Stickers, and 2 Personalized Bag Tags (41 labels for $19.99). Perfect for kids heading to day camp! The labels are UV resistant and waterproof.
Sleepaway Camp Label Pack
Sleepaway camp requires a lot more stuff, so this pack has larger quantities of the labels you will need to make sure you kids' stuff comes back home. Contains 10 Personalized Name Stickers, 24 Mini Custom Name Stickers, 50 Tag Mates Stick On Clothing Labels, 8 Custom Shoe Stickers, and 2 Personalized Bag Tags (102 labels for $39.99).
Mabels Labels also makes customized disposable emergency bracelets (pack of 30 for $21) so that kids with allergies or other conditions will always have contact information and medical information on hand. These are also great for days out at theme parks or the beach (whether they are with a camp group or with the family!).
Mabels Labels let me pick out and personalize a Day Camp Label Pack and a Sleepaway Camp Label Pack, and I can't wait for them to arrive! It takes less than a minute to order and personalize labels -- just type in your name (you can personalize a second line on your labels with a phone number, camp cabin number, etc...), choose your label colors and designs, and choose your font.
There are a ton of designs (make sure you check out their limited-time summer camp themed designs!) and colors, so your child gets a label that matches their interests and personality.
Stay tuned, I'll post photos of our new labels when they arrive!
Order your Mabels Labels Summer Camp Label packs ASAP, because they're only here for a limited time!
