Christmas conversation starters from Skip to My Lou

A page from my tattered Trim the Christmas Tree Little Golden Book
 Wouldn't it be fun to have some really interesting, meaningful conversations, that the kids could also take part in, around the dinner table on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?  A few years ago my hubby and I took a little getaway in August and visited a Christmas shop in the area we were visiting.  I found a neat little round box of Christmas conversation starters and purchased it.  I actually remembered to bring it out and use it on Christmas Eve that year, but have forgotten it until now.  This year the grandkids might enjoy it even more, now that they are older.

If your family could use some help getting a fun conversation going, check out this idea from Cindy at Skip to My Lou.  She has some free printable Christmas conversation starters that you might like to use.  The questions are printed in the center of pretty green and red wreaths, so they are pretty and festive as well.

Or, you might like to just take this idea and make up some interesting conversation starter cards of your very own.  It could be really fun to personalize them to suit your own family yet still make the questions general enough so a guest of any age could answer.  This would be an easy project to do for Christmas in July and have all of your conversation cards ready for the holiday dinners!

  3. Hope you find some helpful ideas, ladies. Looks like fun to me!

  4. Love conversation starters! They are often topics you never think about.

  5. That is so true, Pamela! They really make you stop and think and it's a good way for extended families to get to know one another better!
