My son, Johnny, started Kindergarten last week. This is a huge adjustment for us all, but especially him. No longer is his mommy standing by his side all day telling him to put his shoes away, find his toys, or put his favorite game where it belongs. I know the situation is a bit different for school but he has so much more responsibility now. He is the one that has to keep track of his lunchbox, his backpack, and other school supplies. I wanted to do all I could to help him out with this task.
The task of getting my son organized and ready to be a responsible young boy was much easier thanks to Mabel’s Labels. We were sent the Ultimate Back to School Combo pack in the design and color Johnny chose. You can choose from 6 limited edition Classic color palettes or 27 Colorful Label Out Loud™ designs. Plus there are 6 exclusive Ultimate Back-to-School Combo motifs available for both lines. Johnny chose the Rebel Rock color palette and a spaceship motif for his labels. When they arrived, he was so excited to see “his” design in print!
The Ultimate Back to School Combo included 50 Tag Mates™, 40 Skinny-Minis™, 16 Shoe Labels, and 2 Teeny Tags™. We immediately got to work labeling all of his school stuff! We added the Teeny Tags™ to his lunch box and backpack.
Next we added some of the Shoe Labels to his tennis shoes. I have no reason to think he would lose his only pair of shoes, but a mom can’t be too careful.
Finally, I added some Skinny-Minis™ labels to his lunch extras. He has an ice pack in his lunch box everyday so the monkey was the first to be labeled. I also labeled his sandwich boxes and will label his thermos when we get it.
The Mabel’s Labels are holding up very well to normal use by a 5 year old boy. In addition, the sandwich boxes are being washed in the dishwasher everyday and look as good as new. When the time comes for jackets and sweaters, I will be using the Tag Mates™ in Johnny’s clothes and I have no doubt that they will work and hold up just as well. I love that my son’s school stuff is labeled in a cute and easy-to-read way.
You can purchase the Ultimate Back to School Combo for $42.00. If you ask me, that is a great price considering how many lunch boxes or jackets you might have to buy if they aren’t labeled well! I highly recommend Mabel’s Labels for any mom looking to be organized and keep her kids organized too. They are a winner in my book.
