I LOVE tag blankets, specifically the little ones that kids can carry around. They are a great comfort item to have on hand for littles who come to your house to stay the night or longer. Since they don't take up a lot of space, they are easy to store and easy to send on with a child to their next placement. They can be made with leftover scraps of fabric and ribbon and don't take up a lot of storage space.
Today at Goodwill I even found two tag blankets for .50 cents each!!! Score for me, they will be going right into the Rubbermaid with small stuffed animals and blankies for new kiddos.
How cute is this giraffe one?? Cant beat that for .50!
If you're looking for a way to help kids in foster care, keep your eyes open for cheap tag blankets or make up a few if you are the sewing type. Contact a foster parent, foster care agency, or county Department of Family Services in your area and drop them off for kids coming into care.
