1950s Activity Book Companion to 50s Placemats 7 Pages of Fun! In the 50s & 60s while waiting on your burger & fries, time was spent answering trivia questions and coloring hot rods, and playing fun games, that's right, on the back of your placemat, and/or a fun activity book provided by the diner to keep the kiddos occupied. Quite often it became a family event as the parents often joined in the fun. Sound like today, yes, but this was trivia from the 50s & 60s "almost a history lesson but more for fun"! So, you will want one for everybody at your event and yes, a 4-piece crayon box was provided too! We sell those on our website too!
