The best family conversation starters


  • "Our kids love these conversation starters so much that if I forget to bring them to the table at dinner, they remember on their own! After we all go around the table to answer a question, they want another...and another. Since we started this little dinnertime ritual, we're having the best conversations, and I feel closer to my kids than ever before." – Crystal

  • "I don't even remember what we talked about before we had these family conversation starters. Since I have three boys, it was probably just a lot of jokes about bodily functions. But now that we use these cards every night, we have real conversations about topics that are important to my kids. Plus, it's fun for my husband and I to chime in with stories from our childhood, and the boys just eat that up." – Jennifer

  • "A couple years ago, I bought a set of conversation starters off Amazon that was like triple the price of this one. They were decent, but a lot of the questions didn't really get a conversation going because my kids just gave one-word answers. Then our cards got grubby from years of mealtime too many spaghetti sauce stains for my taste! I decided to get this printable set so if my kids spilled on them or we lost them, we could just print another copy. I'm so glad I went with these instead of another expensive set! What I love most is that these questions really get a conversation going, and they work with a wide range of ages (a must for my family with a preschooler, grade-schooler, and teenager). This tradition is a hit with everyone in my family." – Kathleen

  • "I get to see my grandkids just a few times a year, and these conversation starters help me reconnect with them during our visit. I treasure the chats that come from using these adorable cards." – Susan
