Qlubb Lunch Systems

*** Contest Closed ***

Congratulations Tracy

A free online service, Qlubb, helps parents organize and coordinate their children’s activities and groups.  It has online sign-up sheets, shared calendaring, etc. and has over 20,000 members who are using Qlubb to organize everything from parent-teacher-associations to room parenting to scout troops to youth sports. Qlubb makes it much easier and frees up time for children –  no more coordinating volunteers, phone calls, email back-and-forth, document versioning, attachments, and reminders etc.

It is Back-to-School season and MommyNiri reader’s can Win a Qlubb t-shirt and a ecofriendly lunch system. The lunch system is green – no pthalates, no BPA plastic, no lead, etc…

1) the Qlubb home page – each group gets their own URL, their own virtual bulletin board.  This is a screen shot of what it looks like.

    I don’t really have a set method for organizing my children’s activities. Mostly party invitations, class schedules get put on the fridge and written down on the calendar. Qlubb looks like a great solution.

    I have not needed to organize group activates. The only tools I have used for dates is the calendar in my blackberry. It lets me know if I have conflicting appointments.

    I also use my blackberry to carry books, so I can read when I have a few minutes.

    I used to organize group activities for a local MOMS Club. I would call around to different places I thought would be of interest to the moms and kids and arrange tours. We had a lot of fun touring bakeries, pizza shops, nature centers, pet stores, you name it, we toured it.

    I wish I had some tips. I’ve actually been looking for something that could coordinate all my family’s schedules. I wonder if this will work. Otherwise, I’m just an email addict. I don’t even use Facebook. Oh, I do use eVite. That’s definitely useful.

    There was not one dad who would stand up and lead my oldest son’s Boy Scouts troop, so I did…and I made the best of it by researching and talking to other dads, and my husband, to see what boys best like to do in groups. It was fun, but I sure wish a dad would have done it; that’s a lifetime experience and boys need responsible men to bond with too.

    Jeff Heyer says:

    E-Mail is an invaluable tool for organizing group activities when used properly – #1 rule is to use free software to convert all attachments (e.g., Excel, Word, etc.) into a PDF format so everyone can open them without special software; Newer tools like evite.com are really catching on as well

    I’ve organized play groups with kids focusing on gross motor skills. I set up an obstacle course with rubber “stepping stones”, through a parachute tunnel, and rolling down a large wedge.

    Other tools that I’ve used are physioballs, trampolines, and balance beams.

    Thanks!

    Kerrie Mayans says:

    I have found that most of the mom’s in my daughter’s class don’t check online as often as me so things like this or evite don’t work so well for them. However, most of the mom’s in my son’s class are online and we cureently have a special facebook group for his class but soemthing like this would probably work alot better for us.

    I mainly use my calendar in Microsoft Outlook to keep organized. I like how it pops up reminders to me every day to make sure I don’t forget to do what i need to do. I currently have to schedule meetings for 5 department heads from different colleges which is nightmarish, but using a program called Doodle helps me to organize their schedules and make meetings actually happen!

    For quick, impromptu meetings
    I had to organize after school
    emails sent BEFORE lunch
    were always pretty cool.

    But, whoa, after twelve o’clock
    no one checked their mail—
    so, the meeting usually flopped
    when communication failed!
