Family Dinner Questions


30 Family Dinner Questions #1

Here are questions that encourage family talk!  We believe in families and we know the power of getting to know each other better.  So what we’ve created for you are 30 questions that you put in a jar.  It doesn’t need to be a fancy jar {see above}.  Each night at dinner time pull out one question and read it to the family. Some are silly and some are serious.   Get to know each other better and smile as you create memories with your loved ones!

      I think this is a great idea! We always try to make conversation with our two little ones at the table. Now we can take turns pulling out the questions each night. But, I can not open it up? It is giving me an error. Can you help?

      This is a great idea! Mine are two and four so there aren't too many "deep" conversations :-)

      Enjoy your holiday and Merry Christmas!

      our favorite dinner time conversation starting question is "What's the best thing that has happened to you today?" I wonder what the favorite will be from your list?

      This is a fabulous idea to create closeness in families. We have more ways to communicate than ever - technologically speaking - and yet we truly share even less I believe. This is a good way to change that.

      I just love this idea. I printed out all four question PDF's and have been cutting them out for our family dinner tonight. I just wish I had a cutting instrument because my hands are cramping cutting out all of the great questions. Thanks so much for this!! It was needed. :)

      I bought table conversation cards for my nieces and nephews this christmas :( I could have been a lot more creative and made my own jar, not to mention saved at least $10 bucks using this. I was a day late and a dollar short. Do you have a new set of questions out yet?

      This was great! I did it with my family.. We enjoyed messy fajitas as we spoke about the questions! It's our new tradition!
