True Happy Meals
When there’s a little time and energy, use these ideas to connect.
Start by smiling upon seeing the kids.
Throw together an impromptu picnic and eat on the living room floor, in the yard or at the park.
Ask the kids to read aloud while parents cook.
Balance a lemon on a spoon held between the teeth and stage a fun race.
While cooking, keep kids busy preparing a restaurant-style menu, a place setting with utensils wrapped in paper napkins and a way to take orders.
Put on aprons and whip up homemade pizza, cupcakes or something unusual, like BLT pancake sandwiches.
Buy write-on, wipe-off place mats and have kids doodle while they wait to eat.
Dress up for dinner. Wear old Halloween costumes, put clothes on backwards or eat in pajamas.
Share thanks. Everyone shares one thing they are grateful for.
