MOPS Nametags

I have finally found my place as a MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) leader as the Creative Leader that really excites me!  I should have just done this in the first place, but thought it might be too much work!  I'm going to try to share with you the activities that I am doing for our local Sparta MOPS group here.  I think most will enjoy the craft projects I have been working on.

For our first meeting this Thursday, we wanted to have some name tags.   Here's the theme that we have this year.  It is based around a game theme.  So, we are trying to keep in that theme for the tags.

 Here are the materials that I used to make the name tags (all from Wal-mart):
  • Party Necklaces - $.97 for 4
  • Pink & Blue Ribbon - $.47 each
  • Findings Clips - $2 for 48
  • Tags printed on Card stock (found on MOPS leader sight - sorry I can't remember who made them, but comment with your email & I can attach them to you if needed) and then laminated

I think that these turned out pretty well.  I made wrote the names on the tags before I laminated them.  I also made some blank ones so if we have some new Moms come, I can just use a Sharpie to write their name on it.  I just put the hook on the necklace and punched a hole in the name tag after I laminated it.  I am adding a ribbon to the name tags for each child that a Mom has, of course, pink for girl and blue for boy.
Hope this gives you a great way to make fairly inexpensive name tags for your group.Be sure to check out the blogs that I follow at the right.  Oh, and leave me some love in the comments!  I love to hear from everyone!


  1. Those are pretty cool. I should make some of these for the ladies at my Bible study table. The ones we have are not so pretty.

  2. Pretty idea for something practical - thanks!

  3. Yours are really cute. I am a MOPS coordinator and we are so busy this week getting ready for our first meeting on Tuesday.
    One of our moms created a registration program for our group that makes the tags and prints them out. Not sure what it will look like yet, but I will find out on Thursday when we make the groups.
    Love your tags and wish we could do something similar, but I don't think we have time to make 90 of them. We print ours out and put them in a plastic pocket with a clip on it, makes it reusable. Which reminds me that I have to make sure I have enough of them. Oh what a busy day I have ahead.
    Good luck with your MOPS year.
