The Kids Are On A Field Trip. What The Teacher Does To Their Arms Takes Mom By Surprise.

With theme parks and waterparks at their all time busiest this summer, protect your children with this simple solution. Its cheap, it's easy, and it could save their life.
The idea of losing a child is terrifying. I get goosebumps just thinking about it, in fact. Once, my son ran away from me in the airport for all of 15 seconds and I about lost it. Which is exactly why when I saw this seriously simple solution to our confident little runners, I snatched it up and tucked it away immediately.
Our friends over at TheNerdsWife.com shared this little trick, and I couldn't be more excited to try it.
Let me introduce you to the temporary tattoo. Old news you say? Not this one! It's a temporary tattoo you stick on your kiddo that simply reads "If lost, please call: 123-456-7890" (insert your phone number there obviously). Genius, right? So, here is how it is done...
Download The Template
Here is a link to download the template for these tattoos, but you will need to have Photoshop to use it. Simply unzip and download the file, open the document and go to Layers, and change each red phone number to your own.
Print The Template
Print your image on this tattoo paper using a laser jet printer. Follow the instructions on the paper to apply the adhesive, and voila! You have a sheet of temporary tattoos to keep in your purse for trips to the zoo, the airport, or any high trafficked area.
Not everyone has photoshop and an ink jet printer, but there is another option! Grab a fine point Sharpie, and some liquid bandage.
Ready? Now write "If lost, please call: 123-456-7890" on your kiddos forearm. Let dry and cover with liquid bandage. That's it. No really, it's really that easy.
Available To Buy
No time, or energy to make your own? You can also buy them pre-made from places like Etsy, Amazon and Tottoos.org.
You Can Never Be Too Careful
With all the scary scenarios you think about as a mom, let this be one last worry. Keep your eyes on those kiddos, and do everything in your power to keep them safe.
Next visit to the a ball game, I am going prepared!
