day 7: kid’s table

With kids, any decoration you use for their table will turn into a toy … or a rocket. So put those little hands to work creating their own centerpiece. Make sure each place setting has a supply of pipe cleaners and let the creativity flow. We also put out crayons and brown butcher block paper with stars for the kids to color. The teenagers at the table thought the activities were “lame” but soon were giggling at their creations.
