I am a big believer in the family mealtime. As much as we are able, we all try and have dinner together each night. I understand this is not always possible for everyone because of work schedules and other commitments but even just weekend dinners together can have a positive effect on a family. One of our family traditions is Pizza Friday. Each Friday we make a pizza exactly how we like it and we enjoy it while talking and using these 31 Dinner Conversation Starters.
Family dinner is a time with no distractions. Phone are ignored and conversations are had. With six year old twins and a five year old, sometimes dinner conversation can be a bit tricky. The kids are still working on being good listeners and not interrupting each other. The easiest way we have found to do this is by having dinner conversation starters at the ready. Conversations starters help to draw out kids who often respond "nothing" when asked what they did that day. Plus, they are just fun. You learn things about each other you may not have known before and they are a great way to deepen connections. I have included some free printable Dinner Conversation Starter cards that you can use with your family. You'll also love this Story Box with Free Printables. . There are enough to last you an entire month!
