It’s Back to School time and that means fresh lunchboxes and backpacks. I made some Bag Tags you can personalize and download. The floral backgrounds I chose were from The Lilly blog.
How to Make a Bag Tag:
- Hole puncher
- ribbon, rope, or shoelace
- laminator (optional)
- First download the desired pfd from the end of this post. Personalize with your child’s name.
- Print on Cardstock.
- Cut out tags from cardstock
- Laminate – My current obsession is a $24 Thermal Laminator. I use it to laminate photos, kids’ artwork, soccer certificates, recipe cards, place-mats, bag tags and more. It’s highly addictive and so simple that my daughter uses it.
- Trim away excess laminate with scissors or cutter.
- Punch a hole and insert ribbon
- My boys are not ribbon people, so I used some rope and a shoelace
You are done. Printable templates at end of post.
You can use them on:
- lunch boxes
- diaper bags
- sporting bags (tennis racket bag)

I had several questions about where I got the lunchboxes.

We were at Legoland this week and my children wanted to ride the electric cars. Before a child was allowed in the car, their picture was taken for a “Driver’s License”. Upon receiving this Driver’s License (which was nothing more than a business card with some blanks), my youngest son’s entire demeanor changed. He felt responsible and trusted. He wanted to make sure he obeyed each and every rule because he had been entrusted with this license. This small card was the highlight of his day and really boosted his ego.
You never know what is going to click with children. This license did, so I decided to use it for my benefit. I created a “Driver’s License Safety Test”.
If a child passes, they will be rewarded a “Driver’s License for bikes and scooters“. It’s proof that they know the safety rules of riding a bike/ scooter. They understand the license can be revoked if a rule is not followed. To have your very own Driver’s License can be a rite of passage, a step up in responsibility which develops confidence.
It is a great tool if a child is receiving a new bike or scooter. The license can represent the responsibility that comes with it. It is exciting. The expectations are clear. Happy Riding!

I read this quote recently and thought it was hilarious! I tracked down the source, Beth Buelow at www.TheIntrovertEntrepreneur.com who gave me permission to make a printable out of it. I think I should make a shirt out of it.
