Mittens has a knack for losing stuff. He likes to carry along his own water bottle when we’re out, and we’ve lost a couple of bottles this way. Recently Mittens’ snack box went missing in school for 2 days. It wasn’t so much the box I was worried about, but more of what might be in the box in terms of mold, if we would ever find it again.
And you know how it is with 12-20 kids in a class, all with their own water bottles, shoes, bags, snack boxes, etc. So I decided to start labelling all our items so that it would be an easier for the teachers, since they wouldn’t have to be asking who the item belongs to all the time, and myself since I wouldn’t have to be in a slight panic about missing items all the time. And when they’re young, labelling also helps kids recognise their names! I even have them in both Chinese and English.
So I was very pleased when Stickerkid sent over some personalised stickers for us. You’d think that all stickers are created equal, but these can survive the microwave, dishwasher, water, sun and sand. Amazing right! Sounds pretty preschool/toddler-proof to me, if you ask me.
You can easily personalise your stickers – sticker type (for belongings or iron-ons for cloth), background colour, logo/avatar, font colour and type. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted because there were so many choices! And at first I thought the logos looked a little tacky, but they actually came out really lovely. And all the products are made in Switzerland!
