What’s in the bag???
While sitting down at dinner choose one question from your jar. Let this begin conversation tonight!
As an educator and a lover of all children, I think the time we spend around the dinner table with our kiddos can be priceless. I know at times we all fall into the same questions/discussions; How was your day?, What did you learn?, etc…. Try these out for fun!
There is a guarantee…..you WILL learn something new about each other =)
I found this idea on a great site (http://quirkymomma.com/2010/family-conversation-starters/ ) and decided to do it. Frugal, fun for the kiddos and meaningful for the families receiving them…..or at least I hope so!
Crew and Goose loved this part. They painted the back of the printed paper (conversation starter questions found at the above link) to add some color to our gifts. Just mix shaving cream and tempera paint and viola! So fun….I even joined in =)
After the paint dried, I cut each question into strips and we all wrapped them around pencils (or paintbrushes for a tighter curl). Goose was great at filling the jars.
A bit hard to see with that busy tablecloth but here are some strips cut up and then curled and ready for the jar.
Your family and your love must be cultivated like a garden. Time, effort, and imagination must be summoned constantly to keep any relationship flourishing and growing. Jim Rohn
Please do share your meaningful gifts too or any you have found!
