How to entertain my child at a cafe

Bring activities to the cafe for your child to entertain them

As a frequent cafe goer with young children, I’ve learned that there are some key things that are great to bring along when heading out to cafes. This includes the essentials like something entertaining for young kids to keep their minds busy. Note how I advise bringing activities your toddler will enjoy; remember they probably can’t sit down with crayons and colour in pictures for hours on end! Also take into account the local landscape; perhaps there is space underneath a table, in between a chair and tabletop, or if all else fails you could move up to the next level, and order an activity pack.
 
The art of distraction can be a wonderful thing. Most children can only focus on an activity for a few minutes at a time before getting bored or losing interest which means that it is important to constantly have new things readily at hand so that they don't get over stimulated which could result in them having an accident! If possible pick the table that's away from others so as not to disturb others.
 

Go to a cafe frequently with your child

You may find that the more times your toddler goes to a cafe, the more they seem to not understand how important it is when it comes down to acting responsibly in public. If they don't learn anything now, they might eventually act out in public and that's something you need to avoid. Hopefully with time, your children will become accustomed to what you want from them. It can take some prodding on your part, but it may be worthwhile in the long run just so you know that life with an adult child won't be all difficult for you or other people at home!

 

Give your child independence at the cafe

Going out to cafes also provides kids some independence and responsibility they need to develop as they mature into strong, independent adults!

As your toddler grows, they can begin to take part in the full cafe experience. This gives them an excellent opportunity to practice coping with diversity and responsibility (as well as an added sense of independence!). This is a great opportunity for you to observe how your child reacts.
