Materials needed to make fun foam name tags for kids

Fun foam
fabric ribbon
fabric paint
(All the above items can be found in most craft stores in a wide variety of colors)
cookie cutters
hot glue gun and glue

Place desired cookie cutter on fun foam and trace shape with a pen. Cut out the shape along the traced line. Choose the color of fabric paint you want to contrast with the fun foam color and write the kid's name on it, printing clearly. After the paint dries, make small bows from the ribbon (choose a coordinating color) and hot glue the bows to the shapes in a appropriate place, such as at the top if it is a heart, etc. Your name tag is done!

Examples and Suggestions:

Heart shaped fun foam using red, purple, white or pink with a contrasting color of paint make nice Valentines name tags. The bow can be placed at the top of the heart.

Shamrocks can be cutout from green fun foam with light green or white fabric paint with the bow glued at the top of the name tag.
