Over here meal time is fun because we love food.

It’s also fun because it’s a special time to spend together as a family. Recently I was sent an adorable Crunch a Color Conversation Starters card deck ~ a simple + fun way to invite conversation and giggles to your dinner table.

After all, family meal time should be relaxed, delicious and full of lively conversation. This will help get you there.

What makes mealtime fun for me is when my boys help me in prepare the meal. Oh what a mess, but oh what a good time.

Kim, having the kids cook with you is definitely one of the best things we can do as parents. Teaches them essential skills and they learn to love all kinds of food.

what makes meal time fun? Eating with friends and making sure there’s a bottle of wine involved. :) With the kids, when we talk about our day and play “mad, sad, glad.” :)

We have a family ritual of going round the table and telling each other what the highlights and lowlights or our day were – it’s a great way to stay connected.

Reply

26 Marla November 19, 2012 at 4:52 am

That is a great way to stay connected Millie ~ especially after long + busy days :)

27 Kath November 19, 2012 at 12:08 am

We often have a crossword going that we all contribute to – it gives us something to talk about and we always end up learning something new too – which is a bonus!

Great idea Kath!

We put music on and play a game where we have to guess the song and the artist – the winner doesn’t have to do the dishes!

Most of the time just sharing the stories from our days at school/work provides enough hilarity. But if stories aren’t forthcoming we chat about what we might do on “family day” (Sunday) – that always get’s everyone smiling :)

Eddie, the Family Day sounds like a great ice breaker!

Chopsticks make meal time more fun for my husband and I!

41 Barb Prud'homme November 20, 2012 at 4:40 am

Meal times are a lot more fun when they are interactive or when everyone in the family gets a chance to participate/personalize their plates! If I make a core family dish, I put out a little tray with different condiments that everyone can use to make their dinner unique! Or I chose meals, like tacos, where everyone gets to top their own. :)

This sounds very interesting. I’m always looking for new ways to spark up the conversation at the dinner table!

44 Andrea November 20, 2012 at 5:49 pm

Meal time is always more fun for me when I am sitting at a table with other people! Many of my meals are spent alone because of different schedules, so I love to be able to sit and talk with others :)

Reply

45 Valeria November 20, 2012 at 7:13 pm

Dinner is fun when my husband compliments the food and my son eats his whole plate :) When we want to celebrate something we do cheers not only with glasses but with a tiny bite of food…meaning that he and I would make the piece of bread high five each other..if that makes any sense..hahaha. it does not get messy and I think it’s cute :P
