Bedtime Passes

I got this idea from The Creative Homemaker. Chad cut these passes out of wood and painted. I used the Silhouette to add the name and bedtime pass on it. Easy Project!! However after we did all that work- we found that our local craft store sold the wood door signs very inexpensively. WHOOPS.

At least I know ours is one-of-a-kind

I went through mys crap bag of ribbon and tied on a few pieces that worked well with the kidlet. :) They have used it every night since they received it for Christmas They were not too thrilled by the gift at 1st. However they have come to love it. (As have we) They only come out of their room once. It’s been so nice!!

BEST.GIFT.EVER!

    So cute! How are you using it with your children? Is it to go to the bathroom or get a drink of water or something?

    Its for any “one more ” thing they want. I try to get them a drink of water and bathroom before they go to bed. But they usually want to tell me ONE more thing or get something etc. So this gives them a free pass out. 2nd time.. they come out (no pass) well.. they are in trouble. :) So far.. we have used it for a few months.. and only once did one of them try to come out a 2nd time.. and hasn’t since. HAHA It has saved my sanity from the 1,000 trips out of the room because they forgot 1 thing :) This makes them narrow down which one they want to do for the night. Then the following night I hang it back on the door. Lately they havent come out at all. So I prefer they not. HAHAHA
