What are activity cards?
Around The Table’s activity cards are games and questions designed by experts to encourage open communication and participation, in a fun and engaging way. We know that sparking a meaningful family conversation can be challenging at times, particularly at the end of the day when responses are often simply “yes” or “no”!
We’ve found that parents and kids alike look forward to sharing the three different activity cards you receive with every meal from Around The Table.
Why are the activity cards important?
Research shows that there are significant social, emotional and academic benefits associated with eating together as a family. 71% of teenagers said they consider talking, catching up, and spending time with family members as the best part of family dinners*.
Around The Table isn’t just about convenient food - our activity cards are intended to replace screens and other dinner table distractions and drive communication and family connection.
Special thanks to the team of experts who worked to ensure the effectiveness of our activity cards:
