Recipe for Playful Learning!
Maximize mealtime to get your kids talking and learning!
STEP 1: Choose an age-appropriate topic – i.e., U.S. states, words that start with the letter Q, wild animals, types of flowers, fruits and vegetables, book or movie characters, etc.
STEP 2: Have each person – kids and adults – take a turn and name one item from the chosen topic. Keep going until someone is stumped!
STEP 3: Make a note where the player got stumped and allow for some online research after mealtime to get more answers.
STEP 4: Continue the topic at your next meal or suggest it for a future date and see how many items everyone can recall.
For older kids: Name 2-3 items from the chosen topic.
