Dinner table questions

Started by trooppetrie , author of Troop Petrie 8/22/2011 8:51:16 PM

I have 6 kids, the youngest three take FOREVER to eat and the oldest three are done 30 seconds after we pray. So I am going to make a bowl of questions that we can choose from and put on the table. That way we are encouraged to set around and enjoy talking.

I need your help to come up with some questions?

How 'bout these:

-If you could have been the inventor of one "big" invention, what would it have been? (i.e electricity, the wheel, fire, etc.)

-If you could be any animal, what would you be? (My cousin recently asked this of an interviewee...ha!!)

One of our favorite things to do is "Roses and Thorns"...everyone gets a chance to say what their Rose (good thing) and Thorn (bad thing) of the day was! It's great for learning about taking turns and being good listeners!

Oooh...I always go around the table, and EVERYONE has to tell the family 3 things about their day.  It can be anything - from what they ate first at lunch to who they sat with on the bus.  Even myself and Hubby have to join in....it usually takes up the entire dinner, (until the last person has gne EVERYONE must stay) and its great to hear about everyone's day!

Love the 3 things idea! I love that it encourages kids to talk AND you hear about their day!
