Child Safety ID Bracelet

 As you know we’re off on our first family holiday soon and something that has been playing on my mind quite a bit. We’re going to be in a super busy place, with a bundle of little ones and between the darling man and me, we only have two sets of eyes to keep track of them all. So I came up with a solution; to make a Child Safety ID bracelet for each child or minor.

Now I don’t intend to lose my children {just thought I’d air that!}, but if one of them do happen to stray, get turned around and lose sight of us, they’ll have the means to go to someone nearby {shopkeeper, Policeman, etc} and give them the number on their wrist to call me. Phew. Even the idea of this happening TERRIFY’s me, but better to be safe than sorry, right?

They were super easy to make and thankfully a local store in Belfast called Abacus Beads had the number beads that I needed. But I’m sure you have a store like that nearby that you were unaware of or you could even try eBay or Amazon.

Ellie picked out some pretty coloured beads and Jacob picked up colourful dice to be added to their child safety ID bracelets. I got more beads than I needed as initially I wasn’t intending on making Annabelle one, but the darling man insists {just to be on the air of caution and all that}. Even though she’ll only ever be on the reins or buggy, but then again it’s better to be safe than sorry, right?

We have taken our child safety ID bracelets away on several holidays and as we’ve visited a few places on days out and they really do give you a great peace of mind.

Have you ever considered making your Kids some Child safety ID Bracelets before going on Holiday?

    What a fantastic idea! So clever and yes NO mother wants to lose their children but they are quick and fast and we are all human it does happen. This is a great project to do with them too. So cute and creative. Love it. Thank you so much for linking up to Share With Me. #sharewithme

    Thats an awesome idea Debs! I’ve joked in the past (or was i joking?) when i said ‘if we can microchip cats & dogs, why can you do it for children?!’ LOL!! I know, that’s far more extreme than these….i go with your idea!! xx
