Discover some neat name tag ideas for kids with a little research and creativity. Children can make the name tags with you as part of an art project or use them for a take-home gift at a birthday party. Kids are consistently socialising in school, sports, birthday parties and clubs, and learning everyone's names can be a challenge. A name tag helps the memorisation of names through colourful hats or photos to associate each child's name. Think outside the box. Children's name tags can be put on their hats, lunch boxes and water bottles to help others remember their names.

Name Tag Stickers

Name dot stickers at the Kidecals website enables kids to put their names anywhere, such as water bottles, lunch boxes and backpacks. Oliver's Labels has labels small enough to put a child's name on his toothbrush and pens. Iron-on name tags and shoe name tags can be useful for day care and school, where the child may sometimes misplace his possessions. You will also find photo labels that enable you to put a picture of your child in the small frame name label with his name underneath. Seeing a photo with a name can greatly enhance the association of a name to a face.

Record Tags

Make record or CD name tags for a music lover. Create a record name tag for music class by cutting out cardboard or recycling an old CD and painting it black. Paint a circle in the middle and colour it in. Have the child write a song on the record that is her favourite in the middle circle of the record. Then have her write her name in any colour on the record. Hot glue a jewellery pin backing onto the back of the record and pin it on her jacket, shirt or bag.

Foam Name Hats

Making a craft foam visor with your child is simple and your child may enjoy creating it. Buy some plain craft foam visors at your craft store. Get embellishments like foam shapes, buttons, jewels and stickers. Get some foam letters at the craft or discount store. Have your child glue her name onto the main part of the hat so that it shows and let her decorate the hat however she wants by gluing on embellishments.

Woodsie Name Tags

Get some Woodsies at a craft or discount store. Woodsies are small wooden shapes, such as stars, hearts and tear drops. They come in plain wood colour or already coloured. Glue enough Woodsies together to fit the letters of your name onto and paint. Use Alphabits cereal and pick out the letters with your child that spell his name. Glue each letter onto each Woodsie. Glue a jewellery craft pin to the back with a glue gun. Glue sequins or sparkles to embellish the Woodsie name tag.
