Table Setting and Table Manners with Kids

Table Setting and Table Manners with Kids - At-Home Activities for Families & Kids
We played with food toys all the time back then, and I wanted to try something new. We used real utensils and tried a formal table setting like a fancy restaurant or party. I didn’t even know how to set the table right, so we learned table setting and table manners together! It’s never too early and never too late!

What you need

  • Plates
  • Glass cups or Any cups
  • Utensils (knives, spoons, folks)
  • Napkin
  • Food toys for bread, salad, main course, and desserts (Your kids’ choice) If you don’t have food toys, you can draw meals on the paper and cut them out!
  • Placemat

The table setting is overwhelming because there are so many different ways and different styles…, but once we know how it works, then we can use it forever!

So many things to learn, but so much fun! I played the server at the restaurant, and my son played a customer. Our food toy playtime turned into a fancy restaurant. We can use what we learned sometimes!

Happy learning,
