Evernote for Parents.
When to use
Evernote can greatly help if trying to stay on top of everything you need to do as a parent.
I imagine this is an experience of every parent--the kids grow way too fast. So, it’s important to be able to capture as many memories as possible and free up our time to spend with kids.
So, here are a few ways Evernote can help with that:
●Install Evernote on a tablet or smart-phone to be able to take pictures that will be saved directly in Evernote. (When you open a blank Note on a tablet or smart-phone you will see a little camera icon. Hit that icon to take a picture and watch that picture be added to your Evernote the moment the synchronization is complete. Great thing about taking pictures with Evernote is that those pictures will be dated for you). You can use this Evernote feature to take snapshots of your kids as well as their masterpieces, i.e., drawings and projects.
●You know that traveling with kids can get very hectic. Depending on their age, create a checklist of things you need to take with you or take care of before you leave (see Evernote for Travelers Lesson for more ideas).
●Think about any other checklists or information that would be great to capture in Evernote so that you don’t have to rack your brain the next time you need to do something. For example, you can put together a “Back-to-school checklist” or “Birthday party cheatsheet.”
●As your kids get older and can read, create simple checklists for them and ask them to work through the list of items. Evernote checkboxes will provide a nice game element to completing all items on the to-do list.
●You can organize kids’ parties using Evernote, including sending out invitations. Since Evernote supports different formats--you can include both pictures and text--you can get very creative. And you don’t have to worry if the parents of the kids you inviting to the party have an account with Evernote or not. Simply send the Public Link of the invitation Note. The parents will be able to open the invitation in their web browser, so it won’t matter if they have an Evernote account.
●You can also save your kids’ medical information in Evernote--from medical conditions or dietary restrictions to recaps of regular medical check-ups. Having this kind of information will be handy if you need to ensure that you provided ALL the important medical information about your kids, i.e., when they go to a camp or visit a new doctor.
The wonderful thing about capturing your kids’ lives using Evernote is that you you don’t have to think about how and where to save the amazing memories that you create together.
