We played this morning while we make pancakes :) It’s fun. A great way to discover their feelings and lives. Try it!
We use these cards a lot with our 5 year olds especially on days they are home from school. They are just starting to read and they love how the cards build little sentences for them to read on their own. The cards really promote active reflection time - sometimes it's a memory from the day before, sometimes it's a memory from over a year ago! It's amazing to hear about the things that were so important to them and stand out in their lives, but we never would have known if we hadn't had that little moment of discovery with these cards. The way the cards work together creates a really fun, spontaneous way to reflect and engage with your kids.
Loved these cards! My son loves stories anout my husband and I and sometimes I run out. But these cards sparked some really fun stories and stretched us to remember moments we had forgotten. We also had some great laughs and moments like that with kiddos are priceless!
Rather than just asking boring questions like "How was your day?" I searched the internet for questions to ask during dinner with my kids. After we went through those, they wanted more.
We just received these in the mail a few weeks ago. Some scenarios are specific to kids, but most apply to all of us. Overall, they were a great chance for the family to connect.
And because they aren't structured like most question cards, we play one round every night during dinner to get at things that happened during the week.
Routine dinner conversations can get boring, but with this deck, I discovered so much more about my kids. I discovered that one felt ashamed by a friend, and would not have told us if not for these cards. Another still carries a dissapointment that we had brushed under the rug. Discovering all of this made us curious to learn more and dig deeper.
These are now a standard part of our dinners. While I thought the deck was a bit pricey, it never runs out. And we can use it when people visit. I will def buy other packs for other situations.
A terrific dinner time dialogue starter for kiddos.
