This was just posted on my preschool group, sounds like a good
resource and we could do so much more than nametags.

I don't know if anyone has used this idea for name tags, but it
works great! My
husband works for Home Depot, so I went to the kitchen department
and got the
countertop samples that they have hanging up. Get the samples with
no writing on
the front. Try to take colors that aren't very popular, usually the
top row of
solid colors.
use file folder labels for the kids names, and put their symbol ( I
am using
stickers for their identification symbol) on it. Cover these with
clear tape.
Hang a piece of yarn through the hole and you have a virtually
name tag, also very cheap! Home Depot, or the other building
warehouses are
willing to let you take these, but I asked first so that I wasn't
wiping out
their supply or taking the popular colors. They were more than
happy to give me
all that I needed!

Field Trip - Contact your local Home Depot, and ask about scheduling
a Kids
Workshop. My daughter's preschool class went last year and built
bug houses.
They each recieved a certificate, pin and apron for completing their
These are fun for the kids, and something that they don't always get
to do. Cost
is free too!

Hope these were useful!
