The Ultimate Children's Design Resource


Get Personal with Back to School

Sometimes I can’t believe that I have a little one in pre-K. They really do grow up fast! Even in pre-K, my daughter has things she brings to school with her on a regular basis, and one of the requirements is for all of it to be labeled. I had no idea since she is my first and only child so far.

So I designed some great labels to not only jazz up her school lunch and drawing book but to also help her learn the letters in her name.

A special set of pencils gets wrapped with a ribbon (like a present!) and gets its own personalized label.

So now my smart cookie is all set to start her first day of pre-K with her own special supplies all personalized just for her!

Do you do anything special to get your child ready for his or her first day of school?

    I suck because I did nothing really special for my kid. For the most part, I was in denial about her finally going to school.

    What I do is I make little love notes and slip them into my kid’s lunchbox. As for her stuff for school, I just try to play it cool. I don’t like her attracting too much attention to herself through the stuff she brings at school, because let’s admit it, little kids do show off.

    I label my kid’s stuff using handwritten name tags. I like to personalize her labels and I’m quite proud of my neat handwriting :)

    I printed my kids’ name, address and phone number on cute little stickers so we can just stick them on anything they own.
