A DIY hero badge for brand new siblings

“Hey, he’s with me!”

A new arrival in the family can often make kids feel a bit befuddled. Here’s a sweet (and 110% official) way to keep your little one feeling special when your littler one arrives. It’s a DIY hero badge that confirms their status as official protector and snuggler of their tiny sibling. To be flashed at friends, family, enthusiastic puppies and so on. We’ve made ours a bit like a police badge but you can go sporty, or sparkly, or seafaring—whatever makes them smile. There’s even a Hero Skills Checklist (the Department of New Arrivals is very thorough). Happy badging!
