Thanksgiving is coming up and our families will gather around the table. Spice up your conversation this year by adding Thanksgiving table talk questions. Sometimes when you gather year after year, our conversation become stagnant. We talk about the same things. Families can get into a rut over the years and changing up the conversation is one way to breathe new life into you gatherings.
Last year my aunt brought over a set of questions. We had a great time discovering new things about our relatives. Honestly, it was funny the quirky things we found out about each other.
Table talk is not just for adults! Maybe you have noticed that the little ones get antsy and bored during long holiday meals. Having fun questions keeps them engaged. They might even enjoy sitting at the table a bit longer. Table talk questions offer the chance to:
- Learn about people’s hopes and dreams
- Discover hidden talents
- Explore family heritage
- Bring some humor to the table after a tough political season
- Provide opportunities to be thankful and express their gratitude
- Strengthen kids conversation skills
I created a set a questions just for you! You can use these questions with both kids and adults.
Create a Table Talk Jar
Supplies you will need:
- Mason Jar
Use the hole punch to create a hole at the top of the tag.
Tie the ribbon around the jar, leaving enough room to tie on the tag. Tie a knot and then thread one end of the ribbon through the tag. Tie and trim the ribbon to desired length.
Place the questions in the jar.
To use: You can have each person select a question and answer OR have everyone take turns answering the same question.
Add some of your own questions or invite the kids to contribute a few questions. Ask them what are things they wish they knew about the family.
Hope you enjoy! How you do get the conversation going? Share in the comments so we can inspire each other.
