This weeks Mommy Must-have is in conjuction with a great giveaway!
In the fast pasted world of parenting, logistics can be a very important component of success. If you have active children, you need to be able to keep many details straight - who is taking who where and when? (not sure that's a proper sentence but I am sure you get my meaning). Well Nicole Budleski has come up with an ingenious invention that she calls TicklerTags!
What are TicklerTags and How Do They Work?
TicklerTags are interchangeable backpack reminder tags that parents attach to their child’s backpack each morning to remind them of the day’s after school activity and transportation arrangements. TicklerTags are also used to communicate words of encouragement, positive feedback or to remind your little one of a task they might otherwise forget.
• Kids love them because they understand the day’s plan
My Thoughts on TicklerTags
First off, I was very impressed with the quality of the tags. Each tag is made of thick, durable plastic - I would liken it a heavy duty hotel room key card. I know that they will survive the torture my little guys put everything through. I also really like the images used to depict each item. My son - who does not yet read - was able to ascertain the meaning of a vast majority of the cards. I think the process of using the tags each morning is also a great way to make sure that everyone is one the same page. If you thought it was football today and your son says it's piano lessons, you then know to double check your calendar. It also lets your teachers know what might be expected of your child after school - is grandma supposed to pick you Susie today? All in all - I think TicklerTags are going to be a great addition to our very busy lifestyle.
