safety tats alternative?

I really love the safety tattoos for kids, but I'm not sure I want to spend $40 on them (2 kids that I'd be buying for) We will have 3 kids and 8 adults in our party, so more than enough help watching them, but I want to ID them somehow just in case. What is your favorite way to ID kids w/ a phone number or two in a less expensive way?

I like that I can use it every year (just replace the card inside with any updated info).

Ah the dilemma.

My trip is just short of 17 days away and i still have yet to decide what to do...

Looked into the expensive ones, too much money...
Saw some people had the rubber bracelets (think livestrong) embossed w/ info
Saw some people said they just took a marker to the rubber bracelets
Thought of making a bracelet or anklet with numbered beads and elastic jewelry making material, thinking i could get numbered beads locally... i was wrong
i am at the point where i am going to just write my number on her stomach with a marker or pen! lol

Wait ... is just taking a Sharpie to the kid's arm a bad idea?

Write it on a piece of masking tape and stick inside their shirt on the hemline.

I thought the same thing about a sharpie to the arm! At least then it would be near impossible to remove and they would be easily identifiable no matter where they were b/c that would take DAYS to wear off! Cheap and easy--let's brand 'em!

You could print an ID tag, laminate it, and lace it into their shoelaces or slip it thru a belt loop so it's visible from the outside. Include the child's name, your name, and your cell phone number only.

Why do you need to buy 2 sets? I have 1 $20 set of safety tats I bought 2 years ago that I've used for 2 trips. I still have plenty for our next trip where I'll use them on both of my kids this time (previous trips my youngest was in utero or unable to run!).

I have done this for several local events when DS was younger. When we went to WDW I bought a military style ID tag.

I am confused too. I have 4 kids & we are here right now and I spent $9.99 for the entire week. I got these
http://www.amazon.com/SafetyTat-Chil...words=child+id

They last 2 weeks long and are waterproof. Even my child with autism hasn't complained about it (inner forearm placement like they suggested). I let my kids pick the character they wanted (mouse, surfboard and something else) and they were thrilled.

We got these ID bracelets...

http://www.mypreciouskid.com/ICOE-in...-bracelet.html

They worked perfectly. My son wore his on his ankle and my daughter wore it as a bracelet. They should last for years to come!! They were able to pick their color and design.

I'm thinking something crafty, like head to the local craft store and see what you can find. Make some cute bracelets or a necklace or something. The best part, everyone can make their own, and spend some family time together talking about their upcoming Disney trip!

I write my cell number on the underside of his arm where a sleeve would hide it with sharpie.

I wrote it on his chest once, but it looked weird when he was in his bathing suit.

You could get shrinky dink plastic and make cool shoe tags or pendants. Or I'd go with the sharpie idea. Get the extra fine line ones if you don't want to be too conspicuous!
