My kiddos cannot get themselves out of my car with out me opening the door for them, because of the child safety locks, which are a great thing. My problem is what do I do with Peanut while I am getting Pumpkin out of the car and putting her in the car. I also tell him to stay close to the car, and often catch him walking around the car or trying to open his door.
One day, I was driving in the parking lot and I saw a car with one of the awareness ribbons on the back and it was like a light bulb went off, or maybe a ton of bricks hit me? Why not give the kids a spot to wait for me and only in this spot.
I went through my craft supplies and found magnet sheets. Using one of the sheets I had on hand (no pun intended), I traced the kids hand prints onto it and cut them out. I have found magnet sheets at craft stores and home improvement stores for about $3-4 a sheet.

After I cut them out. I took them to the back of the car to figure out the placement. The nice part is I can easily move them around to put them where they need to be.
