What American Girl does to help families connect

AmericanGirlPic

Yesterday I had a great day enjoying some time with my daughter at the American girl store.  We booked a reservation to attend their Bistro.  While we were sitting there, we noticed a box in the middle of the table.  The box had small strips of paper with questions on them.  The questions are meant to spark conversations while sitting at the table.  The kids at the table enjoyed asking the rest of us questions and hearing our responses.

There are many conversation starter sets available for free on the internet.  Pinterest is loaded with them.  You can even put scripture verses in a small container and pull them out as you sit around the table as a family.  What other ideas do you use to encourage discussion around the dinner table?

  1. At Christmas, I did this very thing for the little people I teach every day. ( the questions in a box part. . . not the American Girl bistro part). A fabulous way to get families connecting.
