Label Maker for Back to School

It’s time for a trip down memory lane today. Do you remember when you were a kid getting ready for back to school time how much you loved to put color labels on everything?

It all seemed so much more organized and official if it had a label on it. I used to have of those manual DYMO label makers that had the big wheel that would click as it was turned? Do you remember those? Actually, I still have it in my old desk drawer. I assume the electric label makers are much more popular with kids these days. Even when I was a child, my friend had an electric one and the rest of us were so jealous!

Take a look at the picture below to see at the kind they manufacture now. They look so sophisticated now. I’m sure they are as popular as ever with kids these days.

We used to have so much fun with the label makers. We would find any excuse for sticking them on things. Of course, we didn’t realize we were also being organized and efficient; we were enjoying ourselves. I’m trying to think of some of the many things we did with them. I know, pencil cases…since a lot of people had similar ones that helped distinguish them without opening them if they got mixed up.

I remember in the younger grades how excited we would be to see our names on things if the teacher had labeled something ahead of time. That made them ours (at least for the whole school year). One use was in the coat closets. The teachers would put a label above each hook. One time, I donated a record player to the school and the teacher put a label on it saying it was donated by me. I thought that was the best! It’s probably still there somewhere!

When your kids tell you it’s time to label their CD’s, book bags, notebooks (or these days laptop computers), make sure you help create and stick the labels – don’t let the kids have all the fun.
