Let’s start with the obvious and probably the most popular types of wristbands already used in schools.
1 Emergency Contact Wristbands
2 Dinner Wristbands
Often plain silicone wristbands used to distinguish which meals pupils have chosen for lunch.
3 Allergy Wristbands
4 Accident Wristbands
School nurses must document any accidents which occur during the school day. To keep a record, many schools issue the child involved with an accident band, detailing the event, all of those involved, the date and time, and the actions taken after the accident occurred. These bands are often Tyvek as school staff can write the details directly onto the band. (Beats paper slips being lost or left in school bags.)
5 Achievement Wristbands
Bronze, silver and gold are great colours for silicone achievement bands, with many schools using wristbands as a replacement for certificates. Excellent for praising a student’s progress, project or attendance. (Check out our silicone Times Table Wristbands.)

6 Walk to School Wristbands
7 Poetry Day Wristbands
Thursday 4th October is National Poetry Day. A day for celebrating poets of the past and creative poets of the future, why not create Tyvek wristbands with quotes from poems you plan to teach? You could ask pupils to mix and match quotes, creating unique poems of their own. (Best to submit a Excel spreadsheet to the office for a quote. Cannot be ordered online.)
8 Space Wristbands
If you or your pupils love science, then keep an eye out for World Space Week around the 4th October. If you’re planning projects, classroom activities or trips, why not create space wristbands for your activity? Full colour 1” Tyvek wristbands are the perfect choice for space wristbands.
9 Smile Wristbands
Friday 5th October is Wold Smile Day. Put a smile on your pupils faces with a smiley face wristband. Why not hand out silicone bands with smiley faces on instead of your usual achievement bands?
10 Primary / Nursery Wristbands
Global Hand Washing Day (yes, it’s a thing – don’t tell me you haven’t found out your child hasn’t washed their hands at least once after they’ve been to the toilet.) This year, the day’s theme is food hygiene. The aim is to teach children about the importance of washing their hands before and after being in contact with food. Why not customise silicone or Tyvek achievement or picture bands to encourage children to take part?
