Printable Back to School Name Labels!

Sticker Name Labels - katherinelenius.comIt's back to school time! Hooray! (insert waving Kermit the Frog arms). My kids went back to school yesterday, which is a little early for this area. I know some of you have been back in school for awhile now and some are still waiting but today's printable is for all of you! And psst . . . they're not just for kids. Grown-ups can use them too. Every year I make sticker name labels for my kids so they can label all the stuff they have for school. This type of labeling is more of the decorative variety as opposed to the absolutely necessary labeling, which is the black Sharpie on the water bottle or the mittens. HOW MANY WATER BOTTLES AND MITTENS CAN YOU LOSE? I don't understand it. This year there are two versions, one a little more "girlish," one a little more "boyish" (because I have both) but they are pretty interchangeable. They're designed to print on letter size (8.5x11 inch) paper or sticker paper. Simply cut them out after printing to use them as labels. If you open the pdf file in Adobe Reader you'll see a form field on each label so you can type in the name you want to print. Otherwise you can just write them on there old school (with that handy black Sharpie you already have out).

Giggle & BOO! A free Halloween printable game

  halloween1

Mwah-ha-ha-ha! . . . that's my evil scary laugh in type-talk. I'm sure the true effect doesn't come across very well on the screen. We're a week out from Halloween which means I'm stressing out because our annual Halloween party is coming up and I need to clean our perpetually messy house. I'm knee deep in costume creation, which is a combined effort of thrift store purchases and from-scratch sewing on my part. This year the work load isn't too bad but my middle daughter wants to be a fox (?) and I unknowingly bought some truly evil fabric that sheds little orange fluffs EVERY.WHERE. All that aside, the shorties are getting pretty excited about Halloween.

Even though I had a lengthy to-do list this week I got the itch to make something fun and printable for Halloween. And I think a week ahead of time is rather extraordinary for me! I'm not exactly sure how the idea came about but my middle daughter (the "fox") loves those little paper fortune-teller games. So here's a Halloween version but instead of a fortune the kids get something silly to do at the end, like "Say Trick-or-Treat 5 times fast." I hope the little costumed creatures in your life enjoy playing. Happy Halloween!

* Can be printed on regular paper or card stock. The card stock option is a little more durable but harder to fold and not as easy to pinch in and out if you're like my daughter and want to do it one-handed. Print "Actual Size." Personal use only please, or witches and vampires will be after you.
