Conversation starters for kids from The Handcrafted Story. Join me on Instagram at conversationstartersforkids

Conversation starters for kids was created to guide intentional family dinner discussions. There are other dinner discussion question lists online, but most seem to be geared toward older kids or adults, but these simple questions are designed for 3-5 year olds.

I want to intentionally guide the conversation at our family dinner table. But I often find myself having meals with our young kids alone, while my husband is working shift-work. The kids and I are tired and hungry and it’s hard for me to think of things to talk about beyond “sit down”, “eat, please”, and “do you need a time out?” I would love to have some positive conversations instead.

TOPICS INCLUDE | gratitude, imagination, about me, today, our family, friendship, pet peeves, our home, food, books, sports, music, animals, the Bible, seasons, being outside, birthdays, making stuff, school, babysitters and travel.

SAMPLE QUESTIONS

  • If you could fly, where would you go?
  • What do you like most about yourself?
  • If your friend was sick, what could you do to make them feel better?

WHAT DO YOU GET

  • The first page is a list of all the questions in smaller font-size, this would be great for sticking on your fridge.
  • The remaining pages are all the questions in a larger font-size for early readers. These pages are good for printing out, cutting so there is one question on each slip of paper and putting in a jar.
