I think I need to write a book. ;)
We went to The Cheesecake Factory for a late lunch on Mother's Day. The wait for a table was long but we spent it wandering the mall, so that was fine. The wait at the table for our food was another thing. Thank goodness for digital cameras. The kids are always eager to look at pictures. Three games we played to pass the time:
1. who is it?
Zoom in on part of a photo stored on the camera. Ask child to guess who is in the photo. Zoom out one step at a time while they refine their guess until they can tell who it really is.
2. silly faces
Not a new game for us by any stretch of the imagination. I've used this one while waiting for ages in the pediatrician's exam room. Simple game: make goofy face. Photograph it. Look at photos. Try to outdo each other.
Snap photos of items in the restaurant that you can see from you are seated. Show photo to child, ask them to find the item.
Griff loves I Spy and this was a big hit with him. Reese got into it as well.
