Things to do with kids eating is usually a win … and highly recommended. But what about preparing the table for the family meal?
What is a good age for children to start learning to set the table for dinner? What age did you learn or what age did you teach your children?
I think this is a great and fairly easy thing for kids to learn to do and as long as the kids can see (and reach) the top of the table they could probably start.
The other considerations are plates and knives. If meals are plated in the kitchen and an adult serves them to the table or good plates are not used – that solves the possibility of plates being broken. Plastic plates could even be used for a while. That still leaves knives.
I don’t remember when I started setting the table. Do you remember when you or your children did?
