I searched for some stuff or at least a cute idea about these babysitting kits for the YW...and found absolutely NOTHING!! I couldn't believe it...so I decided that I would at least post some pics of what I was able to put together..not exactly everything I wanted to do..because our YW budget is not as big as last years, so we as a presidency need to prioritize...so I came up with these folders from good ole' Walmart, did my cute labels and included all of these checklists,songs and activities and ideas for the girls. I also asked my class presidency to each bring something to add to the kit. They all did such a great job at getting thier stuff!! Also my advisor is a preschool teacher and brought the cute stick animals and stickers for the girls...AWESOME!!
I included "A good Babysitter" a list of things that every mom loves knowing that her children are played with, not ignored, fed well and put to bed on time and asleep when she gets home, not to mention a CLEAN home..lol! On the other side is "The Shoe Fairy" the kids get to put a pair of shoes by thier door, and if they were good the shoe fairy comes to leave a surprise in thier shoe! I included a list of easy cheap things...my kids loved this when our babysitter did this and it worked!!
I put in a Safety Checklist and a Babysitter Info sheet to have one of the parents fill out. She will know more of what is expected from the parent and where and when they will be home, also if for some reason thier is an emergency, numbers and all that good stuff...
This is the Shoe fairy stationary...so the babysitter can leave notes for the kids, and the other is the Babysitter Report for her to fill out before she goes home so the parents can see what they did and how things went while they were away. Some of the girls were even wanting to put together a behavior sheet, laminate it and then use a dry erase marker...CUTE & SO CREATIVE!!
