Easy Kid-Made Labels
Every summer we accumulate a lot of "treasures" we store in old jars. I usually label the jars with a bit of masking tape but this summer we got a little more professional and made our own labels. Once we started we saw a number of items that could be labeled.
Print out on a sheet of white paper the name of all your items that need to be labeled. Make sure you allow enough room to crop and use a large enough font set on bold. Let your child color the paper. Cut out the label. You can back with some colored to paper - see cereal label. Attach with contact paper or packing tape cut slightly larger. Make sure you won't mind putting tape on the item you are labeling as it might damage something delicate.
We even used this method to label two spots on a table where the girls are suppose to put their sippy cups after they are done drinking them. I was tired of hunting down sippy cups or worse finding them - how many days later - behind a chair or under the couch. Both girls now know to put their cups on their circles. Emme still needs a little reminding. But it definitely has been great putting the responsibility in their hands.
