Has anybody used the wrist ID tags for children? When would you start? If you used them on a toddler, did they take it off? Did it help?

Write your number on their arm in permanent marker if you are going somewhere really crowded and busy.

I only do this at huge events where adults can lose each other easily

I bought the reusable ones (that look like hospital tags) and I wrote my number on it in permanent pen but I did it on the inside and it rubbed off quite easily (even though it said it wouldn't).

I've now bought velcro ones from and they are better as more comfortable.

Not had problems with her taking off and explained to her what to use it for.

5 yr old DS LIKES having a "festival wristband" with my phone number on if we go to big busy events. If I haven't got a band to hand I write my number on his arm. We also go through the drill with him about who to go to ( steward/ stalholder etc) and what to show them to if he can't find HIS grown ups.
Actually , this summer should be easier as speech therapy over the winter has resulted in his speech being understandable. Last year it was hit and miss if A.N.Other adult would have understood his speech. So closer to toddler than a typical 4 yr old in some ways. I've used bands ever since he was mainly out of the pushchair at events.

I was given a bunch of single use medic alert bands by the Lions club. They dish them out at the county show and similar.

I got a stack of them from ebay (festival wristband type) as I'm a CM. Am going to use them whenever I take the 2.10yo out, but would use for DD once she's no longer in the buggy.
