Hi everyone! Today's post includes some creative ideas to get the conversation flowing at your dinner table! I'm sure everyone has heard, read, or discussed, how important it is to eat together as a family.
With that said-I'm sure there is a varying degree of conversation at each of our families tables. Perhaps yours is almost silent...or never silent! Maybe one person consistently leads the conversation...
perhaps much of the conversation is spent trying to keep the peace.
Whatever the scenario-I believe talking to each other..and not just sharing a seat at the table is so vitally important.
So, I've included a few activities that you can easily do to invite honest, fun conversation in to your dinner time!
The idea for Picture This is simple. Cut or tear out some magazine pictures and lay them out on the table while you prep dinner. If you have really little ones, have them tell you a story about the pictures while you cook (if they're not helping in the kitchen that is!) For older children, they could write their story down...and even illustrate it and share at the dinner table.Want to get the whole family involved? Have one person at the table start a story (involving the people or things in the pictures), and then the next person continues telling the story where it was left off...and so on!
