Welcome to...

FOOD DAY

Choose 2-3 20-30 minute activities from the options below:

Fancy Restaurant

It's your turn to play chef and waiter, so get dressed up and get acting! 


  • Prepare your kids' favourite meal for lunch or dinner.

  • Set the table with a white table cloth, your finest dishes (if you dare!) or fancy paperware. You can light some candles for ambiance but away from the kids.

  • Welcome your kids to your restaurant. Seat them and offer them some juice or water as a waiter in a fancy restaurant would. 

  • Follow this with taking their order.

  • Bring them their food and wish them bon appetite. Don't forget to check on them as they eat to ask if they need anything else.

  • Surprise them with a yummy dessert- on the house!

DIY Ice Cream Store

Instead of missing spending hot days at the ice cream store, make one with the kids! It's easier than you think and makes great photos for your insta ;)


Check out Clever Poppy for all the directions.


Don't forget to reward your kids with real ice cream after!
