After you have kids, arranging plans to go out with friends can be quite a production. Between finding a free night that works for everyone and coordinating with babysitters, there are a ton of moving parts to think about. Instead, have everyone over for an evening at your place — including the kids! Keep reading to find out how.
Create a Special Kids' Table
Alongside your main dinner table, set up a spot just for the kids. Find a small table that works, or get creative and transform a coffee table into a spot for little ones to sit around.
Make Eating Interactive
Get the kids involved by inviting them to set the table. Put out all the dishes and tableware (obviously not your fine china!), and let them decide how to position everything. Don't forget to prewash all of your linens, which makes for a fresh and clean table setting.
Let the Kids Be in Charge
Give the kids an opportunity to be responsible for their dinner. Set up an easy pizza-making station, which will keep them busy while you prepare the meal for the adults. Worried about tomato sauce stains? OxiClean™ MaxForce™ Laundry Stain Remover will have you covered if things get a little messy.
Plan It Out
Part of what makes the evening seamless is having a plan of action that keeps everyone busy. Prepare the main meal so that all you have to do is pop it in the oven and it will be ready when the pizzas are. This way, everyone is eating at the same time.
Make It Fun
Once dinner is over and they're finished eating, kids are always ready to run away from the table. Set them up with a project or activity that keeps them within a safe distance but also lets you have a little adult time.
Send Them Home Tired
It doesn't matter what kind of mess is left behind — OxiClean™ MaxForce™ Laundry Stain Remover will take care of it! The most important thing is that everyone leaves happy and the little ones are all tuckered out.
