Dinner Rules Table Runner

Sharing is caring!

This “Dinner Rules” table runner reminds my kids what they need to do in order to get dessert. It’s a great way to keep them on task!

We have three boys, ages 3-9, and their table manners are… quite frankly… rough. I swear they were born in a barn. I wanted to teach them how to behave nicely at the table- without choking on my food because I needed to yell at someone every few minutes. I looked over the other night and my HUSBAND was rocking his chair. He got the ‘eye’… and a muttered, “for fucks sake.”

I decided to create this super cute SVG and add it to a table runner. They seem to do well when they can see reminders for how to behave. If they don’t follow the “rules” then we don’t have dessert. They’re expected to say please and thank you, help out, and clean up.

Here’s how I made the simple table runner. Make sure to purchase the design from my shop:

What you'll need
Cricut Maker
Table Runner
Dessert Manners SVG
Iron On Vinyl
Cricut EasyPress
Here's a bit of info about this design and runner.
Purchase the SVG. Cut the design on your Cricut Maker using Iron On Vinyl. Make sure to reverse the image.
After weeding away the excess iron on, place your design sticky side down on your table runner.
Use your Cricut EasyPress to press the design onto your table runner.
Press more than once if needed. Once your design is adhered to your fabric properly, remove the plastic carrier sheet.
The hardest part? Not caving and giving the kids dessert if they didn't behave! Good luck!
