For venues and organizations that host minors, child wristbands are a popular method of temporary identification. They come in handy especially when a child can become separated from his or her parents or caretakers, such as on a field trip or at a summer camp. We offer many varieties of durable child wristbands that can help ease parents and chaperones’ minds, since child safety is always a top priority.
There are many different ways to use wristbands for child safety. You can utilize different color or pattern wristbands – such as red, yellow, and green – to categorize children in different groups or with different needs. Another method is to use wristbands that have matching, numbered, and tear-off stubs. The child wears the numbered wristband and their guardian retains the matching numbered stub. Daycare or nursery staff can then verify the numbers match. Daycare staff can also keep a log with the names of each child and their parent(s), and write the wristband serial number in the log for additional recordkeeping and verification.
Many of our other wristbands can also be written on with permanent marker to help identify and keep track of children easily and effectively. Some even have a designated area to write a guardian’s name and emergency information in case a child gets separated from the rest of their group. Writing parent or guardian contact info (such as cell phone number) on the wristbands is one of the easiest ways to use stock wristbands for child safety.
Select lines of popular event wristbands are also available in child’s sizes. SecurBand® Jr. custom and stock wristbands by PDC are narrower to accommodate children’s wrists, and are made from durable, yet cost-effective Tyvek material. Organizations that serve food and drinks to children, such as YMCAs and church retreats, will find our allergy wristbands a useful tool in protecting those under their care from allergies.
