There are many benefits to eating dinner as a family. Studies have shown that some of these benefits might even include higher self-esteem and better academic performance! While we try to eat together as a family most nights, it can be difficult to get the discussion going around the table. Often, the kids are ready to scarf down their food to that they can continue with what they were in the middle of. These clever napkins have been a game-changer for us, and my kids can’t wait to see which napkin falls beside their plate each night!
The Genius Napkins that Get Your Kids Talking at Dinnertime
“How was your day?” you might ask your child, hoping to hear about the new math problem they mastered or what game they played at recess, only to hear a small “fine” as a response. We know there must be a question they want us to ask, or ones that we should be asking, but draw a blank.
I have an entering Kindergartener this year, and I’ve written before about how to really know that your child is ready for Kindergarten. I don’t mean whether or not they know their numbers and letters, but how they are feeling about starting a new school or making new friends. Often it’s just about asking the right questions, or setting the stage to get them to talk. Dinner is a wonderful opportunity for this, and I can’t wait to share with you these genius napkins that get your kids TALKING at dinner.
The new Mardi Gras Napkins’ conversation starters are the perfect solution to getting the conversation started at dinnertime with your kids. Each napkin has a fun question with an adorable illustration, that kids just can’t resist.
The napkins don’t just ask questions, but they get kids to think. They don’t prompt one word answers, they open the doors to creative thinking and real conversations among siblings and families. My two oldest (5 and 7) were roaring at the table with some of their responses. I really love that included are napkins around gratitude and friendship.
Not only will the kids get talking, but us parents will too! I just adore the full conversations that these napkins are prompting, and I can’t wait to sneak them into my kids’ lunchboxes so that they can get chatting with their friends at school too. What a great icebreaker for back-to-school jitters in the lunchroom!
Bonus: this makes for a meal that I don’t mind cleaning up 😉
