  • Wristbands for Encouraging Sports Day and Exercise

    wristband sports day educationKids today have more and more reasons to stay indoors, so it is not surprising that a quarter of our kids aged 5-17 are overweight or even obese.

    Sports days are a great way to get kids engaged and active. Kids are a little too young to worry about the benefits of being active, they just know that once they are outside it’s fun. It’s important that adults focus on how much fun being active can be. Encouraging a culture of exercise will have long-term benefits for our kids and our country and it’s important we get kids out of the house and out on field at an early age.

    Here are some ways parents, schools and teams can prepare for sports day!

  • A Fluorescent Halloween: 5 Reasons Why Glow in the Dark Silicone Wristbands are Perfect for Halloween

    custom silicone wristbandsHalloween is almost upon us, which means it is party time. Few times of year lend themselves so perfectly to a good old fashioned knees-up as Halloween, with its tricks and treats, its scary costumes, and the general feeling that literally anything could happen.If you are planning on throwing a Halloween party this year, be sure to remember one thing;  glow in the dark custom silicone wristbands! No party can be without these neat accessories this Halloween party season. Still not convinced? Here are five reasons that cannot fail to change your mind.

    1. They Turn the Fun Factor up a Notch

    Everyone loves a bit of neon, and a party isn’t a party unless people are having fun. Glow in the dark silicone wristbands are a surefire way to raise the fun factor at a Halloween party, particularly if you’re planning to hold an event outdoors.

    Your guests will have great fun with these customisable, versatile and brightly coloured silicone wristbands which can be used to adorn any costume.

    2. They are Safe for Kids

    You don’t want to exclude anyone at your Halloween party, so you need to make sure that the kids can join in the fun too. Fortunately, the design and structure of our glow in the dark hand bands make them robust enough to stand up to the worst your kids can throw at them.

    What’s more, the non-toxic fluorescent fluid ensures that these cool party accessories are safe for your kids to use, giving you one less thing to worry about.

    3. They Can Even Help to Keep Kids Safe

    In fact, glow in the dark hand bands can actively help to keep your kids safe at a party. With lots of people of all ages, shapes and sizes buzzing around your party, it can be difficult to keep track of your little ones. This holds particularly true if the party is held after dark (like all the best Halloween gatherings).

    Custom fluorescent silicone wristbands are a solution to this problem, providing a handy portable light source that helps you keep your eye on your kids as they enjoy themselves at the party. Obviously, a glow in the dark wristband is no substitute for supervising your kids closely during a party, but they certainly make doing so a great deal easier!

    4. They are a Great Way to Unify Your Party

    Halloween parties tend to be slapdash affairs when it comes to themed costumes. Sure, there is a general, loose theme (everyone is supposed to be scary). But beyond that, nothing. So how can you bring those zombie pirates, Jack Skellingtons, feline witches and Harry Potters a little closer together?

    Adorn them with some glow in the dark hand bands of course! Fluorescent bands help your party guests to retain the individuality and the creativity of their costumes while also enjoying the communal and unifying party spirit. A rule of thumb; the more hand bands you opt to use, the better!

    5. Silicone Wristbands are Affordable

    Throwing a Halloween party can be an expensive affair, so any method by which you can keep costs down is going to be a welcome one.  Customised glow in the dark silicone wristbands are a great way to achieve this. Cheap, durable and great fun, this is one aspect of your party that certainly does not need to cost the earth.

    Have you turned your Halloween bash into a neon rave using fluorescent hand bands? Maybe you opted to throw in some fluorescent paint or some flashing glow sticks? Get in touch and let us know how it all went down with your custom wristbands.  For something completely different and still kid focused, head on over to Handband's blog about maths wristbands.
