Running a daycare center can be the most stressful, difficult job out there. It takes a great deal of patience and creativity to keep a group of children entertained and happy for hours on end. Meals are never simple, messes are guaranteed and smiles are, unfortunately, often times scarce. But it just so happens that there is a mess-free, safe, fun activity that your children can enjoy for hours on end: temporary tattoos.
Temporary tattoos make for a great activity because there, literally, exists something for everyone. No matter a child's age or tastes, you can find the perfect temporary tattoo. Choose from animals to butterflies to superheroes. A variety of designs will ensure children are entertained for hours and provides a great exercise for creativity.
A child of any age can easily apply temporary tattoos. It takes only water and a sponge. Being able to apply the tattoos will give the children a sense of accomplishment and boost their self-esteem. Plus, application provides an excellent opportunity to develop their motor skills. But remember, don't apply to sensitive skin or if a child is allergic to adhesive.
Worried that parents won't appreciate picking their child up full of tattoos? Removal is just as easy as application! Just keep some baby oil and cotton balls in stock to remove the temporary tattoos at the end of the day.
Make it extra special: You can order custom tattoos for your daycare center. Tattoo Manufacturing located in Tucson, AZ will print any tattoos in quantities of 1000 (about $80). Don't wash these off at the end of the day and you've just created inexpensive advertising. Plus, they make great giveaways (business cards of sorts).
Temporary tattoos can make running your daycare center a little easier. When you're feeling stressed or overwhelmed, give 'em temporary tattoos!
