labels!

Friday, August 1st, 2008

Don’t you love label makers? Bailey got one about a month ago and I am finding labels everywhere. I got into my mother’s car with her and the dash was labeled, “nini’s car.” His door is labeled, “Bailey’s room.” Labels everywhere. I think I may hide that thing, but there are a lot of really great uses for the label maker, and it makes me feel a little like Martha Stewart!

A label would have been handy in first grade. I had a metal holly hobby lunchbox and thought someone had taken it. I was such a spaz. I quickly realized it was not much lunch box, but if it were labeled with Color labels it would have been a little less embarrassing. I guess at six years old you’re allowed a few embarrassing moments.

When you send your child off to school with a home-packed lunch, most of the time that lunch box or bag is going to get placed in a locker or cubby for most of the day. Sometimes, however, lunches can get mixed up. In order to avoid a meal mix-up, a good idea is to label your child’s lunch box or bag, using your LetraTag Personal Label Maker. Food labeling helps you child to locate and identify his or her lunch, and also clears up any confusion with other similar lunch boxes or brown paper bags. Simply print out their name, and even the date, and place the label on their lunch carrier.
