Entertaining Kids At Dinner: Table Top Tic Tac Toe

I think most moms can relate to the mom sitting in the restaurant with a restless kids! Well right now I am THAT mom! My two year old is at that that age where he just hates to sit still. So we created this really fun table top tic tac toe. You do not have to take anything with you. Most restaurants have all the materials right there on the table!Photobucket

You need:

  • Sweetener packets (2 colors)
  • silverware

That’s it! Create a tic tac toe with the silverware and allow your kids to use sweetener packets as the x and o. This works for my kids every time!

    My family plays this when we eat out. It really helps my son while we wait on our food!
