10 Items to Label for Back to School #BacktoSchoolwithBSK

Back to school time means a lot of things: new classrooms, new clothes and new supplies, among many other things. Once they’re back in school, your kids’ items could be mixed in with all those “other things.”

Keep track of everything your kids take to school by labeling all those easily-lost items. Cover all your bases by slapping a label on everything, but these items are some of the most important items to label before your kids bring them to school:

10 School Items that Need a Label

  1. Backpacks
  2. Lunch boxes
  3. Food containers
  4. Beverage containers
  5. Notebooks
  6. Coats
  7. Pencil boxes
  8. Mittens
  9. Gym shoes
  10. Boots

Make the labeling process even easier by purchasing a master pack of preprinted labels that are all ready with your child’s first and last name on it. Bright Star Kids makes a School Labels Value Kit with 175 custom labels that you can use to label everything children bring to school.

Even better, you can use Bright Star Kids promo code LABELS to save 15% on any purchase of $30 or more AND get free shipping on your order. If you use that promo code you’ll get the back to school label kit for just $38.75!

I also like the “one and done” approach to the kit. Make a single purchase and you’ll almost positively have enough labels to last the entire year!
