One of the popular activities in the Healthy Together program has always been the Dinner Talk cards. We usually incorporate this as a fun, family friendly craft during our sessions.
The idea is simple - build a deck of cards with conversation starter questions on them - questions the whole family can answer! Whilst we do have downloadable question sheets we always leave a few blank, or better still encourage families to create their own!
It can become part of a family tradition, and we encourage the families to use these cards at home with their family or friends and highlight that this is the start of a tradition that increases emotional connection and may be the start of conversations about import topics and values.
