Fox News shares 8 Reasons to Make Time for Family Dinner. A short little article to look over if you are struggling with family meal time and need a little jump start. It includes things like: Kids might learn to like their veggies, a great setting for trying new foods, & of course the often heard it helps kids "just say no."
For us I want fun memorable meal times. Jake being almost 4 & us being together every day sometimes there isn't much to talk about at dinner. We always share our favorite part of the day & if there is anything we didn't like or will try to work on. Then some nights there isn't too much other conversation that would make meal time memorable. I want Jake to grow up and say "I remember eating meals with my family and it was fun." I am guessing when your kids are in school there might be more to the conversation, but wouldn't it be fun to have more then just normal day to day?
I couldn't be more excited about Erin from In Between Laundry's just released ebook "Table Talkers." Filled with 52 fun, no supplies needed things to do around your table. She includes table talker printable conversation cards with the book. Erin makes it so easy to add fun & memories into your table time. We printed these cards out, laminated them and have them in a bowl on the center of our table. The activities range from preschool age and up. Great for families with a wide age range of kids or for your younger kids to grow into the activities as well. Jake had so much fun doing our 1st table talker drawing and then participating in the activity. He kept asking if he could pick another card. But me wanting the choices to last told him we could only do one a day. Of course there really are no rules. You can use Table Talkers how ever best works for you family.
