Here's a quick and easy activity to keep kids busy at a restaurant. All you need is to find some cardboard coasters which have at least one side blank and some crayons. The idea is to draw a selection of meals on some coasters and people on other coasters and then match up the people to the meals they want.

Time: 10 minutes
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's
Level: Easy

Materials
Cardboard drinks coasters with at least one side blank (or cut out circles of paper/card or use paper plates)
Crayons

Match up the food with the people.
Make up stories about the people. What are their names? Did they like their meal? What's their favourite food?
