Hopefully we all have big plans for a vacation this summer. If you have kids and you plan on taking them along, this is a handy tip to help them in the event of getting lost in a big place or crowd.

Every parent's worst nightmare is losing their child. If you do lose your child in a big crowd, this simple tip could get them back to you a lot quicker.

A blogger mommy had a great idea to give your child their own temporary tattoo with your phone number on it:

All you need is a fine point sharpie or sharpie-like pen, write “if lost call” and your phone number, then put some liquid bandaid on top, let it dry and you have a water proof temporary tattoo that should last for about a day:)


It's such a good idea that a California police department shared the blog and tip with their local community, and now we're sharing it with you. Also feel free to add any other info you want and share this with all your parent friends. Kids love temporary tattoos, so they won't have a problem with you doing this at all.
