A few ideas that may help you find your child more quickly.

ID Bracelet: Customize these bright disposable bracelets with your cell number and allergy/medical information.

Buddytag: These bracelets have a GPS tracker. A phone app tells you their whereabouts and alerts you if they go more than a specified distance away.

Temporary Tattoo: Write your cell number on one of these waterproof tattoos and paste it to your child’s arm.

Child ID Kit: Assemble one yourself with your child’s photo, height, weight, fingerprints and other identifying information to help law enforcement if ever necessary.
