Any family meal is a great time to encourage lively, question-filled discussion. Put together a question jar to help spur family conversations every time you and your kids sit down for dinner.
This Activity Works With These Books:
Glass jar with lid
Scissors (and grown-up help)
Blank paper and pen
- Draw and then cut a question mark out of the construction paper and tape it to the side of the jar.
- Cut the blank paper into strips.
- Write a question on each strip of paper. Kids who aren’t writing yet can draw pictures.
- Fold the strips of paper and put them in the jar. At dinnertime, each family member can choose a conversation starter from the jar and pose it to the table. Questions, anyone?
TIP: Need ideas? Visit thefamilydinnerproject.org for conversation starters targeted to different age groups.
