I have so many of these tape measures and usually buy this 3 pack from Amazon. My kids are always taking them, then hiding them in secret places, or I leave them somewhere. Regardless, I lose a lot of them.

I’m hoping by covering them it will stop me from losing them, although I guess it does make them more attractive to my kids.
