Meal-Time Activities: Describe It!

by Tiffany Rudd
I set a small “rule” at the breakfast table today that made for a super fun start to our day. The only rule was: You can’t say the name of the foods you want, you have to describe them!

We were having steel cut oatmeal (yum!) with toppings for breakfast. So, I set out bowls of fruit, the cinnamon shaker, a jar of jam, and even a little bowl of chocolate chips. 
When Cameron asked, “May I please have some small, purple, frozen balls of juiciness?” we couldn’t help but laugh.
And when Brooklyn said, “Please pass the jar of blood stuff with little seeds that Grandpa made.” Cameron had tears in his eyes, he was laughing so hard. 
He wanted blueberries and she wanted raspberry jam, but just asking for those wouldn’t have been nearly as fun.
Try this simple rule at your table today. You may not be eating “hot, creamy goodness in a bowl” or shaking “tiny flecks of spiciness” on top, but as long as your meal includes a few options to ask for and describe, I promise it will be a lot of fun!
