My kids LOVE to have a Restaurant at Home. I’m usually the Chef and the kids rotate turns on who gets to be the server. We do this about once a month, and it’s a great way to get rid of leftovers or clean out the freezer. Another bonus: my kids seem to have better manners at our Home Restaurant.
The rest of the family goes outside and then rings the doorbell. They are greated by the server who seats them and gives them a menu.
When it was my five year old’s turn, she wanted a picture menu so she could just circle what people wanted.
We usually have several main dishes and then a bunch of vegetables to pick from.
My 14 year old printed some coloring pages for the kids to color while they were waiting for their food.
