In the Parent Toolbox: "Make me a playdate!" chart


New in the Parent Toolbox: Mindy Roberts of The Mommy Blog came up with a smart playdate chart that not only puts friends' contact information front and center, it reminds her kids about the rules for setting up playdates in the first place.

Have you come up with a visual prop or an organization tool you'd like to share? Upload your documents to the Parent Toolbox (here's how) and send me a link in the comments of this post. I'll be sure to let everyone know!
