Getting Organised For Starting Primary School & Giveaway

We have got a pretty busy summer holiday planned. There’s days out, mini breaks and play dates dotted about the entire time so I wanted to make sure I was organised the earlier part of the holidays with regards to back to school. It terrifies the heck out of me that I’ll have three little people to get organised.

I was definitely appreciative of being offered to review the Bright Star Kids School Labels Value Kit and School Bag Tag to review. When we attended P2s Parent Information evening at the school, the one thing that they droned on about was labelling everything. I’m awful for it, none of P1s clothing is labelled but with P2 going in to reception I wanted her to be able to choose her own special labels. The website really allows you to customise everything from colours to the picture. 

Our label kit arrived in a brightly coloured envelope. We addressed it to P2 so she could really feel involved. She’d picked her favourite colour pink and unicorns because she is really obsessed with them at the moment. I have to admit I was definitely sceptical about the bag tag. I thought it would be made of card and be easily destroyed. But actually the tag is super hard wearing and I’m pretty sure it’s made from plastic. The little rubber tag strap is also really durable. P2 was so excited to put it on her brand new school bag. 

The School Labels Value Kit comes with over 190 labels. Precisely; 10 x Large Stick On Labels, 16 x Large Round Stick On Labels, 16 x Round Blank Protection Shoe Covers, 30 x Small Stick On Labels, 10 x Subject Labels, 80 x Tiny Stick On Labels and 30 x Regular Iron On Clothing Tags. I actually didn’t know what was included in the kit but had so much fun personalising them. I was really impressed and P2 was so excited to start sticking them on her things. We’ve managed to persuade her not to stick them on random things and save them for her school items when she gets them. We had popped a name sticker on her bag and her drink bottle.

I couldn’t wait to get P2 her first school uniform and we actually found it all in Sainsburys for such a good price too, plus extra Nectar points. The iron on labels are brilliant. They are just the right size and can be ironed on really easily to all fabrics. The different fabrics tend to take different amounts of time and I like to over do it a little to make sure the bond between fabric and sticker is strong. It took about 30 seconds on max setting on my iron. To be fair my iron never gets used so it’s probably much quicker on a normal iron. I have washed her uniform and the labels have all stayed in tact but we have plenty of spare just in case.

So now that we are sorted for labelling, including P2s knickers and socks, I have a School Labels Value Kit to giveaway to one of my lucky readers.
