Dinner Games

At dinner, we sometimes play games with our two young kids. “Take a bite, and then…”

We’ve found that this encourages eating, because they must eat to play.  Plus, it’s a good way to visit and pass the time during meals without turning on the TV.  Our oldest daughter is highly competitive and likes to “win” the game, while our youngest just likes to eat and play.

Tonight, we played “Take a bite, and then tell me a word that starts with the letter…”  We chose letters at random — F, A, S, L, and then we hit P.

My little four-year-old proudly offered up, “Popcorn,” “Pretty,” and “Pink.”

Her seven-year-old older sister gave it some thought, and then blurted out, “Psycho!”
