With Mickey starting kindergarten, I've been trying to get us a little more organized. The first step towards this was to make him some tags for his backpack. He has one of those backpacks with a million different pockets and I don't want him to have to open each and every one just to find something. So, backpack tags!
I used the Little Boy line from Echo Park to make these.
He has labels for books, papers and his snack. On the back, I put some car and truck stickers. I used packing tape to "laminate" the tags and punched holes using my crop-a-dile.
I tied them on his backpack with some red and white baker's twine. (The pink tag is his bus info that he has to have for the first few weeks of school.)
They turned out to be a hit, Mickey loves them!
Next up, I'm going to have to figure out some way to keep on top of all the papers they bring in! Wish me luck! :)
