Name Tags Woes... No More!!

At the start of every school year I debate over what type of name tags to use because I feel like they are always such a hassle. Stickers come off too easy and kids play with them and peel them off when they shouldn't and yarn name tags are even worse because the yarn gets all tangled up, kids pull the cut out off the yarn, and they constantly twist and play with the yarn. So... I was super excited to find Fran's latest post on the Art of Making Name Tags!! For more information on how to make these name tags and for Fran's free download click here. I went to Walmart today and bought everything I needed to make them!! Thanks Fran for the tip.

I totally agree! I've been using badges for years for everything. Name tags, jobs, games. I have a real sturdy set from Highlight's. The children love to wear the clips because they look like me!

Yep! This idea has worked well for me in the past! I still have that problem of the kids wanting to "eat" them.....the tell tale teeth marks in the plastic badge give the kiddos away real quick! LOL

How funny, I just posted about making these along with all the other things I have made this week! I hope they hold up ok! I can stick these on their backs if they try to eat them, and unlike a necklace that won't tickle their throat!
Come check out my blog and maybe you'll ind some more project ideas. :)

Great idea. I agree - yarn necklaces and stickers just don't work.

I follow your blog and am excited about this awesome giveaway. I have taught spec ed for the past five years but will be moving into a kindergarten special needs full time classroom this fall and would love to use this cd to help make managing the classroom fun for me and my students.

Using name badges shows respect for the organizers and makes you cooperate more on their security measures that they imply.
