Fruit casino

I Want to offer parents idea which can be used as part of the scenario of birthday of the child. We had 8 people (children of 7 - 8 years). It is so possible to entertain children at a table with entertainments, at the same time considering that not to surprise modern children with any design delicacy in respect of laying of food and it is impossible to detain for a long time them at a table.

Edible casino. “Do your rates, the Lord!“



to us will need the field for a roulette: the usual leaf of a big format needs to be lined on cages, to paint with different felt-tip pens. On each cage we put 1 type of food (as advertizing). How many types of dishes you assume - so much and color squares in the field.


of the Menu it was made so that any dish could be eaten with hands, at most - to take a spoon (small pies with different stuffings, salad in a small basket from the test, muffins / cakes, sandwiches on crackers, fruit - “shish kebabs“ on skewers, salad in orange and so forth) . Several sectors represented candies - small candies / nutlets were in advance a la carte spread out on plastic glasses, it is possible to use candy / cookies in packing.

All food is served by

on a separate little table and is given only by the leader.

In a krutilka - a roulette sectors of “task“ and “competitions“ are added. These are card batches, settling down at the edges of the game field.

All players take seats at a table, at the same time each player has the tag - a turret with a name (as a playing counter). We had it the cardboard heart with a name attached by the stapler to a small fence from some set of toys.

the Leader - the croupier, suggests players to stake on offered in the field I go. The roulette is twisted by players in turn, for example, the arrow at a stop specifies sector “sandwich“, those players who staked on “sandwich“ receive the order. The others work up appetite or change a rate.
