Family Dinner Conversation Cards
We've only just started using them but they are creating some great conversations at our table. We already eat together at the dining table & talk to each other, but the cards have definitely opened up some interesting chats for our family. My 12 year old daughter loves them and my 16 year old son participates without force, lol, so I think that's pretty good!
Great convo starter.
Love these cards, if I forget to get them out one of our 3 kids makes sure to find them. Great questions and even my 3 yr old loves them. Would recommend to any family 💞
My 7 and 9 year olds love getting question after question and never want to put them away. We love these cards.
My children love doing this at dinner time now. My 3 year olds responses make the family crack up. Very interesting getting everyone’s answer. Great way to get to know each other
Our 4 year old races to dinner each night and pulls out the cards ready for everyone to play. Dinner time is full of conversation and laughter, and our little one is even keen to eat all her dinner if it means she can keep playing! BRILLIANT!
ALL HOUSEHOLDS DINNER CONVERSATION CARDS
We received the around the table cards - teen pack yesterday which was timely as it was our daughters 14th birthday. We had a few family members over and opened the pouch. All I remember of the night was laughing so hard. It was easy, fun and kept everyone engaged in conversation. I would highly recommend these cards!
My children absolutely love using these cards just before dinner. We have such a blast with them
FAMILY DINNER CONVERSATION CARDS
What a simple yet incredibly important way to bolster real ( and device free) communications.
Excellent concept thanks!
We have by kids age 4 and 13 and both of them love these cards. They also learn so much about us as people not just parents. We love it.
We've been using these cards to break up to the cycle that can happen at the end of a long or tiring day ...and the grumbles and whinging start. It gets the kids thinking about something different and we end up having a positive engaging mealtime. Great idea!
Love the connection with my family when we play “around the table” conversation cards ❤️❤️

When my children were little I worked part-time and so 3 days a week they happily went off to day-care. Not surprisingly, on those days dinner time were very challenging as the kids were thoroughly exhausted. Early mornings, lots of stimulation, engaging play, learning new things plus late pickups, meant that by the time I was there to collect them, they were tired, grisly and needed to go to bed. Between the kids and bed, however, was bath-time and the dreaded family dinner.Read now
What I have found however, is that there is a type of meal that also promotes casual dining (think zero cutlery), is a lot healthier, fits within the budget and my kids love it, perhaps even more than take-away! To be fair, it doesn’t 100% give me the night off, but it does limit my food preparation time and I do find that there is a lot less “finish this” “eat that” “one more” discussions at the table, which is refreshing in itself.Read now
