Park Days

Summer is almost here, and if your babysitting co-op needs a little social rejuvenation, plan a few park days for the summer. Park days are informal get-togethers where co-op parents and kids can spend some time enjoying the sun and getting to know each other better. This is also a good time to find new neighborhood families if you're looking for a few new members.

To organize summer park days, choose a few specific times when you can meet at a local park. Then send out text messages or emails to inform everyone of the dates. Here's an example:

Sandhills Babysitting Co-op Park Day

We're meeting at Moser Park for some play time and fun!

When: Fridays in June
What Time: 11:30
Where: Moser Park, corner of Washington & 22nd

Bring a lunch and join us for an hour or two of play time. There's a sandbox, so bring sand toys if you want. Invite friends or neighbors who might be interested in joining our babysitting co-op. See you there!

Make sure you don't schedule your park days over an existing babysitting shift, or someone will be stuck at home while you're all enjoying yourselves in the sunshine. Summer park days are also a great time for school-age kids to feel like they're a part of the babysitting co-op as well. You may find yourself looking forward to park days as much as your kids do!
