Family Dinner Question Jar

I am always researching ways to make family dinner more meaningful and fun and I stumbled across this wonderful blog today!

Conversation Starter questions My Free Gift to You: Our Family<br />
Dinner Questions

Jennifer Schmidt is the author of Beauty and Bedlam.com.   She is a mother of ” five blessings” and a full time family manager.

She has given her readers a free file to print and make a jar full of conversation starter questions for dinner time.  How wonderful!

She states:   “I am so very excited to share something with you that has been part of our family tapestry for years.  You know that I place a high priority on a shared family dinner experience. Many times over the last year, I have declared, “We need to fight for our family meal time” because with five children, three of them high-schoolers, those times become more rare as schedules increase.”

This is the perfect last minute, meaningful gift idea as well for teachers, neighbors, friends and family. We have included pre-printed labels for you to add onto your choice of jar, box or bowl (see above). There are different sized labels and verbiage for you to choose, as well as blank labels, if you’d like to have your kids personalize it with their own handwriting, like “Schmidt Family Dinner Questions,” or even something silly like “Chat and Chow.”

Feel free to get as creative as you want with the jar.  My dollar store plastic container has worked wonders for years. You may have the kids adorn it with their own crafty creations – glitter, glue, ribbon etc, or you may choose to make it a more elegant gift with a beautiful, glass container.” -Jen Schmidt

I printed mine off today and I can’t wait to try it out.  Here’s the link to her blog  if you would like to read more.  Here is the link to the family dinner pdf file.  Enjoy!

The question section of the file (pages 3 – 24) are perfectly formatted to print out onto 2″ x 3-1/2″ perforated Avery Business cards (10 cards per sheet). This will give you a very polished look, or you can print the file onto paper or card stock and cut them yourself.
