Did you know that you don’t have to print out a new babysitter information sheet every time the sitter comes over?

Since most of the information on this sheet will stay the same for at least a little while, it would be a great one to fill out, laminate, and keep in a convenient spot.

Our Favorite Laminator

We’ve had this thermal laminator for years and use it all the time to help make our printables reusable!

That way, you won’t have to fill out a new one each time, and you can use a dry erase marker to fill in your destination and/or additional contact numbers.

If you find your child’s info is changing frequently (if you have an infant, for example) or you’d like to curtail the information to various sitters, of course feel free to print a new sheet any time you need it!
