I had to come up with a solution to the neighborhood kids knocking on my door while I've been trying to take a nap. It has happened dozens of times with my most recent pregnancy where I would nap on the couch while my kids would watch a show sitting around me. I'd be deadly tired all day and finally have a moment for a nap, about to dose off and there's pounding on my door. Seriously the most frustrating thing!
Now I have a newborn and have even less chances of taking a nap with FOUR kids at home!
I made a door hanger to put on our front door... it's simple and easy to understand for the neighborhood kids with a "YES! We can Play" side and "Shhh... We Are Sleeping - DO NOT DISTURB" side.
I thought I'd share these door hangers for anyone else needing them! I printed mine off at FedEx Kinko's (online with store pick-up) on glossy card-stock for $1.50 each, cut around the edges (except the middle where the 2 sides meet) and doorknob opening, folded in half and laminated. It's easy to flip from one side to the other as needed!

(good to put on baby's door for older siblings)
