I've got six kids and we're headed to an amusement park. How can I keep track of them?

Buy six vividly-colored t-shirts, one for each, in all the same color. It's easier to keep your eye out for the shirt color than for children in more individual outfits.

Readers, do you have any other suggestions? I'd love to hear more great ideas about this very common challenge.

You could also decorate those shirts. Maybe have big numbers on the backs. Then you don't have to count, just make sure every number from 1 through 6 is there.

You can designate a meeting place in case someone gets separated from the group.

Also try the buddy system. Let an older child buddy with a younger one.

It all depends on how old your kids are but if your kids have cell phones then you could have the lost kids call you if they get sepperated
