    Default labels for child's belongings

    Hi everyone,
    This is probably a stupid question but what do you all use to label your children's clothes, bags, drink bottle, ect, for daycare/school?
    Also where do you buy them from?
    My DD is starting daycare soon and I'm new to all this.

    I use the dymo letratag labeller. it looks like a mini type writer that you type the label you want, and then you buy the refill for the item you want (labels that you can iron onto clothes, and labels for other things like lunchboxes, kitchen containers etc...)

    We got ours from office works. It cost us about $30, I have seen the refills for it at coles and kmart.

    I use the dymo letratag label maker too. I have the pink and white one that is long. I just used it for the first time tonight and I'm happy with it. Just did all of DD's pencils. Am planning on getting some iron on ones for her uniform, hat, library bag etc.

    This way if you buy one you can use it for the years too come. Mine costed $27 and the refills are $13 from Kmart.

    For clothes I just use a marking pen.

    I have used identity direct and bright star kids in the past. Happy with both but identity direct is my favourite although they are more $$.

    Pencils etc tend to go walkabout even with labels. Labels will get peeled off unless you also put tape around it to make it harder. So this year I'm going to just use a bit of masking tape around the end of the pencils etc and a marking pen.

    Make sure you label shoes too. That can be a nightmare with the little ones as they can't tell the difference between all the similar shoes. They don't usually take them off but I know our kids will be doing gymnastics the first couple of terms and sometimes they take them off for dancing. You can either get the shoe labels which are good or just a marking pen.

    I love our labeled from Identikid. Nearly three years later, and they're still going strong
