Tomorrow is the last day of summer for our kids. Summer always seems to speed by! Well with the new school year I decided to make my kids something and ended up with these custom DIY name tags. Only it didn’t stop there, I found so many ideas I wanted to share over dozen ways to accessorize a child’s backpack. So in this post I share over 20 different ways your child can personalize their backpack.
I loved the idea of name tags for my kids because there are many times my darn kids left their backpacks or lunch boxes at school. And I found so many ideas I wanted to share them with you.
Each name tag, keychain, craft, and embellishment can add some fun personality to your childs backpack.
Adding a personalized keychain can make your child excited for school and feel comfort. Like the dream catcher or patch with their favorite character can make you kid feel better about going to school. You may need to check with your teacher to make sure keychains are allowed. And if your child is distracted you may need to take them off. Regardless there are some simple keychains you can try.
Here are all 25!! I’ve listed them all in order with simple instructions below the image. Happy crafting.
