Mitten and Hat Time

It’s the time of year when parents bemoan the constant loss of hats, mitts, boots and indoor shoes. Or worse still, the loss of one shoe! This is your reminder to take 10 minutes this weekend and label everything that isn’t nailed down!

Tips on labelling equipment:
Light coloured clothes/ tags: Use Fine Permanent Black Marker (Sharpie, Pentel)
Dark clothes/tags: Use White or Silver Marker (Pilot, Sharpie)
Iron-On Labels (Canadian companies include Stuck On You, Mabel’s Labels and Sticker Kid)
Shoes/Boots Label the inside tongue of shoe (Use Permanent Marker or Custom Shoe Label)
And don’t forget to encourage your child to visit the school lost and found frequently!
