Disclosure: I received a gift code to create my own selection for review purposes. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.
One thing I've learned as a parent of four, is that personalizing the kids' items when they are in school definitely comes in handy. For the younger children they serve as a positive identifier when you hit the mountain of items called 'Lost and Found,' and for the older kids they work well to differentiate between the cool items that all look alike (everyone seems to want what everyone has that's considered 'popular,'). Some of the items the older kids like that are 'popular' can be downright expensive.
Kidecals come in many designs, can be used for any number of things, and are easy to create. There are boy designs, girl designs, holiday pictures, and so on and so forth. There are decals that cover your keyboard, those that indicate allergies, and those for just the plain, but very important 'this belongs to me' task. I liked this rocket with a phone number to be used for the latter.
There are simpler styles too, if you don't want a cute picture attached, and just want the nitty gritty function of a good label. I thought these Kidecals above were nice because they came in different sizes and you could actually create the colors you wanted (see the color box on the bottom right, in the picture above).
Some of you know this year was my first attempt at growing live things outside. To celebrate the victories by sharing (isn't that part of the fun of gardening?), I thought these Kidecals would be fantastic! They are nice and big too, so if you're sharing something you've created (Homemade Salsa came to mind) from items in your garden, these would work perfectly on the jar. Add a nice ribbon and bow, and Euerka! you've got a fantastic gift idea.
Another option I liked was the holiday Kidecals. The Christmas ones were especially appealing to me. You can see from the screen shot above that you can move the words around to where you like them best, and you get a great preview of what the label is going to look like.
There are many different functions and creative ideas for using Kidecals, and though the name implies they are for children, I've got some of my own that the kids had better not touch. ;)
