The children may only have been broken up for a few weeks but this year I was determined to get ready for their return to school as early as possible. This is pretty out of character for me but I simply couldn’t stand the last minute panic of getting everything done.
One task that I generally avoid is the labelling of uniform! It really is a thankless task but absolutely essential if your children are anything like mine!
Coming out of school with half the stuff they go in with is a ritual for all of mine and if it wasn’t for labelling their clothes then nothing would find its way home.
When my eldest went to school the only thing on offer were the embroidered labels that had to be sown in by hand, this was something I always passed onto my Mum as she had way more patience and skill than me.
Petit Fernand make a range of customised iron and stick on labels that are perfect for school clothes and any other personal belongings that you want to keep safe.
They labels are available to buy separately or in value packs that offer the perfect variety of labels for anything from school, nursery or holiday camps.
Oscar will be starting school this September so the School Pack was perfect for him. The pack contains 140 labels that are a mixture of stick on labels for items such as book bags and shoes and iron on labels that can be simply attached to items of clothing using the heat form your iron and take only 12 seconds to apply.
You can chose from a a variety of fonts, coloured backgrounds and most importantly for Oscar the theme…of which he chose a Capitain America shield. You can have pretty much anything from animals to fairytale characters, space themes to transport and so much more.
If you are looking for something a little extra then they also have adorable personalised water bottles and lunch boxes.
Oscar has absolutely fallen in love with his superhero inspired lunch box that is embellished across the top with his name. Just as you can with the labels, the lunch boxes can be created to suit your child’s style.
The bento style boxes comes with four separate compartments and an integrated ice box so that everything keeps its cool. Not only does it work really well cool it can also be used in the microwave to heat things up when they fancy a warm meal.
