Today I want to share a resource that has been sitting around my house for some time. Let's face it, the art of conversation is slowly disappearing from family dinner tables. Hubby and I often kick back and relax watching Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives on YouTube during most of our lunches. So I myself am totally to blame for this.
We are losing ourselves in a world of speaking hashtags instead of using 'real words'. Ex: "OMG, did you see that hamburger? #needtopin, jic!!" ....not that I would ever say that...out loud...ever.
As a result, I created our Family conversation jar as a way to help facilitate good discussions around the dinner table. This is also a fantastic resource for when we have company over.
The idea is simple: make up a bunch of questions (What is your favorite color?), write them on slips of paper, and put them in a jar or bowl. Easy Peasey! Then when you are sitting down to dinner, or entertaining, take out the jar and have each guest grab a question or two.
I started by making up my own questions and printable for my jar. Which you can find just below here:
Made by Me! I printed under option size "wallet size" to fit my mason jar best. Just right click and "save as"

Later after some Pinterest research, I found some great resources for family conversation jars! Go ahead and check those out here:
How Does She blog: you will be asked to sign up for their email before receiving this printable.
Beauty and Bedlam blog: free on their website!!
The Dating Divas website: This is a review of the Private Affair 'game'. A family conversation starter game that will need purchasing.
I encourage you to make a conversation jar for your family. I think the questions will help facilitate some great, and humorous, discussions at your dinner table!
Q: Do you have a convo jar for your family? What kind of questions would you put in the jar??
