Designing a family control center can be a fun, creative, and freeing experience.  You may already have some ideas of just the right theme, design, and location for it.  Here are some examples of what others have done:




Please continue to the next page (links at bottom right and top left) to answer 6 questions (Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How) designed to walk you through creating your own family command center.  You will have optional "homework" at the end of each section to allow you to jot down your thoughts.  Once you have completed all the sections, you will be ready to create a command center for your own home!
