Getting Dinner on the Table

I am no expert on getting a show stopping dinner on the table seven nights a week. With two kids and a busy family schedule I often find myself frying eggs at 6:15 pm or reheating a pot of soup. But having a home cooked family dinner for all of us to enjoy is important to me so I make it a priority. 

Over this winter, when energy was at an all time low, my friends and I swapped simple ideas of how to keep our pre-school aged kids engaged while cooking. I often wear Gray in a carrier but Dylan likes to play, play, play close by. Here are my top 5 activities that help me get a decent chunk of uninterrupted kitchen time and a meal on the table.

3. Light Cave: Drape a large blanket over the dining room table and play with flash lights. 

4. Play Kitchen: We have a play kitchen in the corner of ours so Dylan can participate in the fun.

5. Give Friends a Bath: Set up a large pot of soapy water (over a large towel) on the floor for kids to wash their favorite friends. Dinosaurs are big at our house now but we used to do this with trucks and airplanes.
