This year for Halloween the youngest M wanted to do something special, but not trick-or-treat. My friend had taken her kids on a different kind of progressive dinner, so I stole the idea from her and we took the boys on a "Fast Food Progressive Dinner".
It starts with clues. Each course of our meal has a clue the boys must figure out before we travel.
Stop number 1 is just for a drink. We are not getting chicken, like you would think. There's no burgrz here, just some thirsty cows. So we will grab our drinks before we get our chow.
Drinks from Chick-Fil-A
Appetizers are next before we drop. We are headed to the place with the cool car hops. We can order rings or sticks from our parked car. But don't think there will be hedgehogs where we are.
Appetizers from Sonic
Our next stop is for some greens. Be thinking lettuce, not the beans. A couple tomatoes with croutons, too. The place with the redhead is waiting for you.
Salads from Wendy's
For our main course, we'll hang with the guys. We can eat burgers and enjoy fresh cut fries. It's not much farther to this favorite stop. We'll get out of the car and into a chair we will flop.
Now to grab a bowl and fill it full. Toppings galore, and that's no bull. Sarah's favorite critter* is where we're bound, where lots of toppings can be found.
*Sarah is the boys' cousin who collects frogs.
We had so much fun with this fun version of a meal on wheels. We laughed and enjoyed un-interupted family time in the car as we traveled from stop to stop. I will keep this family activity in my back pocket and start planning new (and harder) clues for our next meal about town.
We may even have to try this with some friends too!
