8 Kids Organized

22

Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I chose a different color for each child from birth. Then I always knew that the cup, toothbrush, sheets, towels, placemat, coats, other clothing etc were quickly identified by the colour (for clothing it was either part or wholly that colour, or tagged with the appropriate colour)

MORE INFORMATION:
Also works great in day care settings or with individuals with disabilities, dementia and elderly, just choose their favourite colour and choose different shades for multiple favourites, ie. frosty pink, pale pink, rose pink, fuscia, pinky mauve, etc.

    It is funny. My kids now 22 and 19 still tend to be bias toward their "color". They picked their own when they were toddlers.

    What if the kid grows up to hate his or her color? LOL. Just kidding (sort of). Sounds like a good plan. Luckily I only have myself to worry about, so I can use a rainbow of colors! ;-)

    We did the too, I only had three.
