Where’s Your Mommy? Emergency Contact Information for Kids on the Go

When we are on the go, do our young children know how to get in contact with us if they are lost?

Emergency Contact Info for Kids on the Go - unique ways to make sure our younger ones have that info, too! {Mom with a Prep}

When you are on the go with your children, if they were to become separated from you, do they have a way to get in contact with you, or would a rescuer know how to get in contact with you that they’d been found? If you’re at Disney, Six Flags or the mall…do you have a quick and easy way to make it easier to get back with your child?

Here are some ideas to use to help with emergency contact information for your children that are a little too young to memorize a phone number or be able to share the information if the time arises. As always – found this stuff on Pinterest.


Quick and easy tattoos to put on your child that can contain a lot of information.

Here are some other ideas to use:

Throwaway phones – you can purchase cheap, throwaway phones that can be activated for very little $ to put in the pocket of a child so that they can contact you in an emergency, or an adult can use it to contact  you if needed.

Notes in pockets – create an emergency contact note to put into the pocket or pin to some clothing of your child in case they are found. You can make them more resistant to water and abuse if you use packing tape, contact paper or actually have it laminated.

Teach your child – as soon as you can, teach your children your real name and your phone number and practice it often and in lots of different situations.

Teach your child – teach your children how to go to someone who can help. We’ve since taught our children to go right to a mommy or someone in a uniform. That can be a great first step to get help if adults aren’t recognizing that your child needs help.

Non-verbal needs

For those of you with autistic or other non-verbal issues, there is an awesome way to make sure you’ve got them designated as such if they are carpooling, on a field trip, or otherwise traveling in a car, even with you near.

This customized seat belt cover lets you put whatever information you need for your child (or for those of you doing parental care, these are also great for dementia or Alzheimer’s sufferers).

There is one put out by the Autism Awareness America that is a more generic set belt cover that might work for you if you do not want to put personal information on the cover for all to see. But a way to get around that is just to turn the cover around when not in use.

Do you have any other ideas of making your children safer with contact information for you?
