I purchased a small zippered bag from a dollar store along with several other items. Here is what I include in the bag:
- a mini pack of uno cards
- a ziplock bag of legos
- mini puzzles from Five Below
- colored pencils
- magnet games
- a small drawing pad
- a mad libs book
- travel size games such as connect 4, tic-tac-toe, memory etc.
- I spy cards
- mini books of mazes or other puzzles from dollar stores
- some fruit snacks in case the kids really can't wait to eat something
- antibacterial hand wipes
These items can and should be adjusted according to the age of your child and varied from time to time and will help make the entire dining out experience more pleasant for all involved. What sorts of thing do you bring along when you go out with your kids?
