Table Talk

How’s the conversation around your dinner table or in the car? In a distracted culture, we sometimes have to be deliberate about building good healthy conversations as a family. Here are a few questions to get you started. I’ve added questions for little ones to the end of the list.

  • If you could start a restaurant, what would it be called and what would be on the menu?
  • If you could donate a million dollars to the charities of your choice, to what groups or organizations would you give it?
  • If you could take one friend and go on a one week (all expenses paid) vacation, where would you go and who would you bring?
  • If you were going to make a movie, who would star in it and what would it be about?
  • What would be the title of your autobiography and name some of the highlights?
  • Where in this world do you want to visit before you die?
  • Describe your dream dinner and who you would invite.
  • If you could go back in history, what era or time period would you choose and why?
  • If you could be one Bible character who would you be?
  • If you had to perform one talent on stage in front of an audience, what would it be?
  • If you had two days to go away and relax from all responsibilities what would you do?

Questions for Little Ones:

  • Who is your favorite Bible Character?
  • Where is your favorite place to visit?
  • What animal do you like best?
  • Which book do you like to read?
  • What do you like to draw? 
  • Which color is your favorite?
  • Which room do you like best in our house?
  • Where is your favorite place to play?
  • Name your favorite toy.
