Did your child connect in a great way with another tot on the playground whom you've never seen before? Did your son come home from school asking for a playdate with a new friend whose parents you don't have the contact information for? Did you have a great conversation with a mom (you know, the one who also has coffee stains on her shirt) at the playground ... and you'd really like to hang out with her again?

It can be awkward to make new friends -- no matter how old you are! So to help us all overcome our natural shyness, we've created these printable playdate cards. These are designed to be handed out to facilitate new friendships and connections. After all, playdates are a great way to help our kids grow socially, intellectually, and physically ... and a great way for you to find some new (and coffee-stained!) friends.
