This is how I get my kids to come to the table. It's all about transitional cues. 🍴🍴🍴
👐 Before dinner, we always wash our hands (start this early, ie: 6 months old when they start eating). 🍽️ Set the table (give your child this responsibility = ⬆️ self-esteem). 🕯️,Light a candle. I have taught my kids about fire safety and my almost 4-year-old son knows he is not allowed to touch matches unless an adult hands him one and he now lights the candle. My daughter gets to move her arms to "woosh" away the smoke. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🎵 Singing a song or blessing the food does not have to be religious in nature. This is a part of the song that we sing. Let me know if you want the whole song:
🎵Blessings on the blossoms 🌼
🎶Blessings on the roots 🌱
🎵Blessings on the leaves and stems 🍃
🎶And blessings on the fruit 🍒
