I have an obssession with labeling and matching things, so I find great pleasure in making sure that all 4 kids have their belongings properly differentiated. The above picture shows their weekend bags with their name keychains.
The next photo shows the name keychains attached to their respective water bottles. Joram does not have a water bottle yet but I made one for him too anyway. :)
These are special keychains that have cartoon characters meant for their school bags. So far only Jayna and Joash are going to school. Notice also that Joash's cartoon had faded off through time. Might as well, since his character was Winnie the Pooh, one that he had already long outgrown.
I'd also made cartoon stickers to label other belongings. Even Joshua and I have one set each! Hee hee... Joshua: Naruto, Me: Mermaid Melody, Joash: Cars, Jayna: Disney Princesses, Jaide: Marie the Cat, Joram: Thomas the Train (I chose it randomly for him)
