Silicone wristbands have been popular now for a long time and have been used for everything from inspiring charity campaigns to event souvenirs. They are a particular favourite among children, who claim the bright colours and fun designs as a fashion statement. With so many styles available, including embossed letters, multi-coloured bands and even glow in the dark, silicone wristbands can be used to convey any message. With that in mind, here are some fun ways to use wristbands in schools.
1. Class or Year Group
Create a sense of teamwork with class or year group wristbands. Children will love wearing the same design as their classmates and they’ll feel proud to show them off. It is also really practical for teachers who, at a first glance, will know exactly what year/class a child is in.
2. School Trips
For school trips, you can design your own wristbands in your school’s colours and add an emergency contact number as well. While schools trips are well organised and safe, this extra precaution is the ideal solution for if a child does wander off. It’s also a great way to identify children from your school.
3. Team Spirit
Designs that represent various sports teams or after school clubs within your school are a really great way to boost team spirit. As a show of unity and pride, the team can wear their matching wristbands for special events, occasions or matches.
4. Rewards System
Create custom silicone wristbands for various achievements. ‘Superstar of the Week’, ‘Star Speller’ and ‘Man of the Match’ are only some of the rewards you could offer to students. A fun, colourful wristband is a really great way to celebrate student’s success and will go a long way to making them feel recognised and respected.
5. Medical Conditions
For children with medical conditions or allergies, a wristband is a great idea. It provides security, as anyone who is teaching or working with them will know what is wrong, and you can use symbols or subtle wording so that the student doesn’t feel self-conscious.
