I admit, that this is especially frustrating for me in the summer. My youngest still takes a nap during the day and his bedroom is right next to the front door. Given how much he fights nap time (through yawns, mind you) it is infuriating when he get woken up by kids wanting to play.

This DIY I can play sign is perfect for Jude’s upcoming summer camp when he will be gone for an entire week. Now his friends can see when he is available or not without knocking on the door.

Jude knows how frustrating this is for me and made this fun DIY I can play sign to help out.

Step 6 (Optional)

After your sign has finished drying, seal it with spray acrylic sealant on both sides. Allow the sealant to dry before hanging on your door. This will help protect your DIY I can play sign from the elements.

I did this so that my friends know when I can play and when I can’t. I hope you like it.

I’m not gonna lie, this is my favorite Kids Korner by Jude project yet! This DIY I can play sign is going to make mom life a lot easier, especially during nap time for the baby. Admittedly, I would have made the words clearer but I’m banking on the idea that since Jude can easily read them, so can his friends. Only time will tell.

How do you keep kiddos (or delivery men) from waking up your little ones who still take a nap during the day? I’d love to hear your tips in the comments!
