Creative Play Challenge Day 7: Spark a New Dinner Conversation

Posted by   + Show Post

The holidays are a wonderful time to bond as a family, and what better time than over dinner! Kick off great conversations tonight by asking each family member one question about themselves. For example: "If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?" Or "What qualities do you look for in a friend?" You may learn a lot more than you expected!

Check out this article for five additional ways to inspire meaningful conversations with your family over dinner.

Tonight we are just having pizza.  We are super busy today and I won't have time to prepare dinner ahead of time or when we get home.  This will be our first family meal in a week since my husband works every day past dinner, so I'm really excited. :)

My daughter still only communicates by signing, so it's not so much of a conversation with her. But my huband and I rarely spend time together, so supper is our time to sit and talk about EVERYTHING. DD loves to sit and listen to us.

Today, over dinner, our family discussed what we like and dislike about the holidays.  Of course, for the children, the main discussion was all about the things they like most.  For the parents, the stress factor comes into play, but thankfully, not so much for our children.  I am happy they do not have to worry about any of the stressful parts of the holidays, such as finances.  They can just be joyful.

 We always talk about what our favorite part of the day was, and why.
