I am so excited to be visiting today with Angie at Many Little Blessings for the 10 Days of… Series. Please, stop by and visit with us as I share fun ways to teach your children mealtime etiquette.
Here is a sneak peek ~
Teaching children table manners can be a challenge, but you do not want dinnertime to become a battle. So, try to think of fun ways to communicate the rules.
How to sit at the table
My children have wiggle worms in their pants at every meal. I tried explaining that you should sit in the middle of your chair but my words fell on deaf ears. So, I came up with a simple idea. Use masking tape to place an X where they should keep their bottom or place a strip of tape down both sides of the seat and instruct the children to stay between the lines. Say something like, “Outside the lines is a creek bank where a crocodile will snap at you.”
