Mabel's Labels Love

Yesterday I attended Guide/Scout camp with the twins.  Pretty is a Spark and Boo is a Beaver.  We're very fortunate that the Guiding and Scouting movements in Mount Hope do a lot of events together and Hertiage Camp is one that they do every year.  
Since this is the first year for Pretty & Boo in Guiding/Scouting it was the first time they have attended a camp other than with family.  Of course, they had to bring a change of clothes, bathing suits and mess kits and Mabel's Labels ensured that everything that got sent to camp, came home from camp! I actually witnessed first hand the awesomeness of Mabel's Labels when Boo couldn't find his water bottle and there were 3 sitting unclaimed on the picnic table.  He went over to the bottles, checked for his label and proclaimed "I found the lizard label, this one's mine!".  Yes, he can now read his last name; but that lizard icon just confirms it for him if he's not entirely sure.

For those of you that aren't familiar yet with Mabel's Labels, they are the best invention ever if you have kids; or even if you don't!  Mabel's Labels sticky and clothing labels are dishwasher, microwave and laundry safe.  They can be customized with your child's name and an icon making Mabel's Labels truly invaluable to any family.

We have 2 sets of the Classic Camp/School Kit and I don't know what I would do with out them.  I label everything that goes to school, camp, sports, etc.  As I have more than one child I opted to only do our last name on the labels making them versatile for all 3 kids as well as my own items.  We even used the labels before the twins could read by simply adding one of the numerous choices of icons to the labels.  When we received our first batch I showed the twins the labels and our icon and told them to look for that instead.

Mabel's also offers labels to organize your office, craft room, spice cupboard and so much more.   Visit Mabel's Labels to get organized too.  You can also stay abreast of new uses for their products and new releases by following their blog, the The Mabelhood.

Thank you Mabel's for helping make the twins first camp away from home a success!
