Have you got lots of wristbands left over from your last event and unsure on what to do with them? Are you someone that has been collecting them for years but now looking to make them useful again? We’ve got just the solution for you if so…
Labels for Children’s Drink Bottles
Turning silicone wristbands into a name tag for drink bottles is a very popular and successful idea for those families with young children who attend nursery or school. Children often find it difficult to differentiate their bottle from 20 or 30 others that look incredibly similar, which is why this is a fantastic solution. You can either use it with the design it already has, or flip it over and pop your child’s name on the other side – either way they will know that it is theirs!
ID for Children
Families have also found another helpful use for wristbands – using them as ID tags when out and about in an unfamiliar place. Parents have all had that minute of panic when they realise that their child has wondered off somewhere in the split second that their back was turned – a feeling that isn’t very nice at all. This is why old silicone wristbands can be turned into ID tags which include your name and contact number. All your child needs to do is locate a security officer and ask them to get in touch with you.
Heat Protection for Hot Drinks
Silicone wristbands can also be used as heat protection for your hot mug of tea or coffee – protect your fingers and get a cool new accessory. In fact, it doesn’t just provide you with a heat resistant ring to keep your fingers from burning; it also provides a really good grip for you to hold the mug! If you have a couple of different coloured wristbands, this could actually be used to brighten up your cup collection!
Give/Donate Them to Someone Else
If you have a large collection of wristbands that you previously used for a campaign but no longer have use for, we suggest that you consider giving/donating them to someone who might find something useful to do with them. For example, schools could use them to distinguish between different sports teams, or maybe as a way to raise important funds for the school or school clubs. Do you know anyone who is currently planning a big event? These wristbands could be used instead of tickets! If you have any non-profit organisations in the area, they also might be very appreciative of the donation as they can use them for a number of important fundraising reasons!
There are lots of different ways to re-use your silicone wristbands instead of just throwing them away!
