How many of you use those self adhesive name tags for the first week? I did too! I finally figured out to laminate them, hole punch them and then string yarn around them. THERE...problem solved. WRONG! Well, unless my little Kinders to almost hang themselves on the playground with those name tags...I needed to find another solution to my problem.
I loved those cutesy name tags. I wasn't quite ready to give them up yet. One of my teammates had a great idea....can't really say where it came from...but we used it! We still used those cutesy name tags, laminated them and this time put them in badge holders!! You can get these from Wal Mart, Target, or an office supply store!
You also need the clips!!
Now, if you buy the name tags from a school supply store/catalog....leave them on the backing and laminate! You can write their names on AFTER with a sharpie. They fit perfectly in these name badges!
I use these the entire first week and maybe longer! I may have to replace a couple (due to the chocolate milk puddle that was INSIDE the name badge lol) Oh...I almost forgot...important tip: Make sure the opening, where you slide the name tag in, is in the BACK! It saves a few. You will probably still have to replace 1 or 2, but much better than trying write out new ones each day.
Of course, I had to make some that matched my color scheme! You can click on the title page to download your FREE copy!!
