Turning Dinner Into a Game and Art: Literally
When one has toddlers, they’re willing to do pretty much anything to get them to eat more than ketchup sandwiches.
Not everyday, these picky little eaters will indeed survive without eating a balanced meal on the steady, 3 times a day. Trying to make that happen will/can get tiring pretty quick.
However, there are some things you can, on occasion that will boost their love for simple, healthy foods (without all the toddler ‘frills’ = dips and condiments) for all those times in between. I recently came up with this simple, fun dinnertime activity that was a total hit with my kids…
We’re the type of family who doesn’t stray away from dinner-time antics or joking around at the dinner table. So no, I don’t reject the idea of making meal-time into a game. On occasion. The game that I created to incorporate into dinner-time involves magnets, butcher paper, food of course and markers and crayons for use after eating.
