My 3 year old son is a late talker and has many peculiar ways. As a result, I’ve been hesitant to send him to daycare. I haven’t even joined a gym because I’m afraid to leave him in the care of a stranger.
One of my fears is a negligent daycare worker will send him home with the wrong person or my son will wander off and won’t be able to tell people who his mommy is.
To alleviate some of my fears, I created a “Toddler Tag.” It’s a tag with my name and picture on it along with information about my son. These tags are perfect for field trips, family outings, or if you are dropping your child off in a gym’s children’s area for an hour or two.
Here is how to create one for your children if you have similar fears! Please share with other parents!
SUPPLIES – Badges, fun paper, scissors, glue stick, alphabet stamps, ink pad and a computer
I purchased everything from Michael’s.
I used a circle in the document to help me determine space usage. I used simple text boxes and fun fonts to insert the information into the badge. I cropped a picture of myself into a circle and inserted it into the circle.
Of course, you can also use the badges that hang around the neck if you’re concerned about pricks from the safety pin. You can also use smaller badges.
Please let me know if you decide to use the “Toddler Tags!”
I hope it helps all of you concerned parents out there!
