Alrighty everyone… hold on to your computer chairs! Today’s lazy mom tip is QUITE possibly the GREATEST. TIP. EVER!!!!
I can’t believe I haven’t shared this one with you earlier. It is sooooo good! How could I have neglected it until now? Are you ready? Really ready? Really, really ready?? Okay! Here it goes…
In my bag I carry this little guy…
It’s a game called LCR – Left, Center, Right. It is a SUPER easy game. Easy enough for my three year old daughter to play. Which is WHY I keep one in my bag at. all. times.
Whenever Lazy Dad and I are at a restaurant with the kiddos and the coloring place mats have expired in excitement, but the food has YET to arrive, we whip out LCR. The kids love it, it’s small enough to keep in my bag, it doesn’t take forever to play and MOST importantly it provides entertainment when we need it most!
PLUS, an added benefit, Lazy Dad and I actually ENJOY playing it, too!
Our “keep-the-kids-busy-while-we-are-waiting” game has been such a great hit we also purchased this little buddy on our most recent trip to Wisconsin:
If neither of these games suit your fancy there are lots of small games out these days. I saw tons of them by the card game area in Walmart.
Side Note: This game isn’t just for lazy moms and dads trying to entertain rambunctious kids in restaurants or other public places where you have to wait for an ungodly amount of time. It’s also great to entertain a group of adults! In fact, Lazy Dad and I just played it with another couple when we showed up early to a Minister’s Dinner and were waiting for others to arrive!
