Plastic badge holders can be used as name tags for student field trips

Typically, I write about ways to keep yourself organized on this blog because it is something I know very well. In daily life, I am a highly organized individual. That changed a little when I spent the majority of last year helping to develop a new product line, with many items focused towards education.

Previously, when I saw name badge holders, I always thought of large convention halls filled with people who know only a handful of other people (if they are lucky). Now, I see another use for this office product – identification tags for children. What I am talking about is using the plastic badge holders during student field trips.

Help to keep order during student outings

In addition to plastic holders outlasting disposable paper tags, the badges would help easily identify all children on the outing, and make it easier for the staff of the field trip location (i.e. a zoo, museum, theater) to group those students together.

Imagine three different schools each having field trips planned at the same museum for the same day.  That is a lot of children to keep organized and on schedule.  Having the school and children easily recognizable, would make things go faster, allowing the children more time to interact with the exhibit, animals, performers, etc.

Provide added security for students

The badge holder can double as added protection for each student. While the front of the name tag would feature the student’s name, the back could show important contact information for the school and/or teacher. If a child gets lost or separated from the group, an adult can easily contact the school or teacher to let them know the child has been found.

Different styles provide options

With the many options in the badge style – clip, pin, hanging, magnetic – one is sure to fit the functionality and budget of the school and students.

And don’t forget about the color stripe badge holder, which features a red, blue or yellow stripe on the bottom of the badge. This adds further identification assistance, like if the teacher needed to divide his or her classroom into smaller groups.  This would make it easier to know who is in which group.

Fun for the students

For younger students, this idea can be turned into a project. Because the badge holders require the use of a badge insert, students can design their own name tag.  Everyone could be given an insert and asked to write their name on it, but also to let their imagination take over for the design of the rest of the name tag.

One last added bonus of this is that the holders are reusable, making them a eco-friendly option as well… just in time for
Earth Day!
