  1. Turn all family cell phones to silent and place in this cell phone coop
  2. Enjoy your Chick-fil-A meal and each other distraction free!
  3. After the meal, let us know that you have successfully completed the challenge and each of you will receive a small Icedream cone.

So there you have it, dump the smartphone and take a licking. In this case a free small Icedream cone.
