Sounds petty I know, but I wish restaurants would have those 3 sided crayons that don't roll on the floor every minute , my grandkids are always under the tables retrieving their crayons , as of last week ,No more coloring in restaurants unless they use one crayon only Plus retrieving crayons off the dirty floor them their meal comes ?

Hope I'm not the only one finds this bothersome ?

Some places now do the three sided but I’ve learned to just carry spare just in case my dil forgot to pack hers.

Don't retrieve them off the dirty floor. Just take your own crayons that are 3 sided.

I used to make a crayon corral with flatware and other things on the table. If the crayon didn't go back in the corral after use, it got a time out.

We had breakfast with friends yesterday at a restaurant, and their two kids are about 6 and 4. They ignored the crayons and spent their time waiting for the food on iPads playing games. It definitely kept them quiet.
