Dinner Conversations are one of the most important times a family or couple can share.

It is a time talk, LISTEN and learn about our loved ones.

Sometimes it is hard to get a real conversation going, instead of silence, arguing or small talk.  Here is your solution!

Print these questions and cut them into strips, place in a CONVERSATION JAR that is put on the table at dinner time.

You can take turns pulling them out and answering the question


One question can be chosen and everyone takes a turn answering the same question; which would be very fun and enlightening to find out what is going on in their life without prying or being perceived as prying.

Make the most of your time together.  Here are  questions to print and cut apart to put in a jar or container:

  1. This is really a great idea. The question ,,”is there a family friend or neighbor that scares you ?” could be the most revelant question there .
    The question jar is also a great gift if you filled it with “why I love / like / appreciate you” slips of paper. I gave one to my dad years ago and he really enjoyed reading my love and appreciation for him. :)

  2. My mom always said she was going to do this, yet our dining room table was never quiet! I like your questions! I have pinned this to our Mother’s Day board. Thanks for linking up to our Mother’s Day blog hop!
