Table Talk

The fabulous Jennifer Darger was the substitute teacher in Jonah's primary class a few weeks back. He brought home strips of paper with questions on them for "table talk." We've had fun using them at dinnertime when the conversation lags. (Which in our house means Josh and I start carrying on an "adult" conversation or the kids start talking in baby talk). It's not a game, we use 1 maybe 2 questions during a meal and spend some time talking about it.

Here are Jennifer's questions:

What has been your favorite family activity with our family? Why did you like it?

What was the best thing that happened to you today?

What's your favorite scripture or scripture story? What do you like about it?

Name 5 things that make you smile.

Do you like to move fast or slow? Why?

When you got up this morning, what did you most look forward to doing?

Who do you want to be like and why?

What chore do you like to do best and why is it your favorite?

What was the best lesson you ever heard at church? What did you learn?

Did you do something nice for someone today? What did you do? How did they react? How did it make you feel?

What do you think is you best talent?

What do you like to do the very most on a Saturday?

I love these questions. At our house, we go around the table and tell one thing that made us sad that day and three things that made us happy.

Erin - I was looking for your address online and found your blog! (We keep getting our Christmas card sent back) Hannah was just asking about Roxcy the other day. I know I'm not family - so I feel a bit odd writing here - Let me know how to get in touch - Jodi Williams
