5 Things to do with your Kids while Waiting at a Restaurant

As a parent, I understand the stress thatt comes with taking your child to a restaurant to eat. No matter how quickly the food is served, it is NEVER fast enough!   Kids get bored and when kids get bored they get creative!  Now this can be a good thing, but it can also be a bad thing (for the parents and everyone else in the restaurant).  To make your experience more fun, here are a few tips that will help you put their creative minds to work!! 

  1. Play ISpy.   Wobbly Boots is full of great items to challenge your kids - heck, this might be a good game for adults too!!!
  2. Bring pipe cleaners. For the kids who has to move his or her hands these are a life saver. You can mold them into little people, cars, monsters, etc. You can also make crowns, chains, and jewelry. They are cheap and you can easily carry them in a small bag or purse.
  3. Read a book. This seems obvious but sometimes you just forget how simple it is to just read while you are waiting. Just throw a couple of favorites in your purse or bag and spend some quality time reading while you wait for your food.
  4. Tell knock knock jokes. Time to break out the horrible knock knocks from your childhood to unleash on your kids. Plan ahead and print out a list of great jokes to get the kids started!
  5. Play the question game. This game is really simple and it gives the kids an opportunity to give their opinion or tell a little about themselves.  Every kid likes that!  Here are few to get your creative juices flowing...
Would you rather live underwater or in outer space?
What is your is favorite vegetable?
Would you rather be a pirate or a cowboy
Would you rather be a ballerina or a fairy?
Mint or Berry toothpaste?
Top 3 ice cream toppings?
What is your favorite food?
How many kids do you want when you grow up?
If you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be?
Bike or Skateboard?
