Each year we gather around the table to feast on a grand Thanksgiving dinner. It is one of my FAVORITE holidays and one that I love to host. In doing so, I always try to drum up some fun activities to do while the whole family is in town.
As a host, I find that the best way to make Thanksgiving more memorable is by growing family connections through intentional conversations. This means really putting forth the effort to dig deep with those I don’t see often.
But I’ll be honest, it is hard to multitask the prepping, the cooking, the serving, all while trying to soak up precious moments together with family.
This year, I have a plan: a table talk game to spark dialogue and hopefully lead to deeper conversations between guests.
I created a few table talk conversation questions to break the ice and I have made them available FOR FREE below. Simply download the file, print, cut and throw into a bowl or festive container.
I just used my resources and found a tin bucket that was lying around. Guests will pick a question from the bucket and answer and repeat OR guests can all go around in a circle and all answer the question individually.

The best thing about this game is that you will leave knowing more about those you have spent the holiday with. And you don’t necessarily need to keep this as a once-a-year game.
You can always recycle the questions for dinner conversation starters, Christmas get-togethers, car rides – you name it (as long as the pumpkin designs don’t bother you).
