The Dinner Table Project

A program for families to eat together, have fun, and grow closer through conversation.
​​ These table games are
also great to play in the car-
on long trips or a short drive
to the store! Car rides are the
perfect, uninterupted
time to talk to your kid s!

Table Games ​

Eggs or Babies?
Name an animal and have your kids guess if it lays eggs or has babies.
*Help to get you started - Eggs: alligators, platapus & ostrich! Babies: Dogs, seals & bats!
Who's Coming to Dinner?
Everyone gets to pick one person that they would invite to dinner. This can be anyone! Someone famous or not, from history or the present. Why would you invite them? What
would you feed them? Would they get along with the other family member's guests?
Two Truths & A Tale
Go around the table and take turns sharing two events that really happened that day and one that did not. Who can guess which one is false? Bonus: you will more than likely find out something about their day that they haven't told you!
Go around the table and have each person say at least one "high" (a good thing that happened to them that day) and one "low" (a not-so-good thing that happened to them that day). Again, you might just find out something that you didn't know! This would be a great thing to start doing every night!
Have a theme night!
Researh different cultures- decorate and try new recipes! Your kids will have fun and try new foods while learning about a new culture!
