Family Dinner Box

Question BoxFamily Dinner Box is a new, interactive game filled with 42 easy-to-understand and fun-to-answer questions students can ask each other about family traditions, experiences, opinions, wishes, habits, complaints and preferences. The cards are thick, sturdy, colorful and beautiful with BIG print.

Family Dinner Box Questions include Forty-two easy-to-ask, easy-to-answer questions cards about family, such as:

  • “What is your favorite family tradition?”
  • “Who is the best storyteller in your family?”
  • “What is the most important lesson your parents have taught you?”
  • “What house chore do you enjoy?”

These inquisitive cards promote interaction & conversation among students.

Each student should receive about 10 cards and ask a person in the group one of the questions. The person called upon should answer and then ask another person a question. Additional comments and questions from members in the group are welcome. Laughter and interaction are generated from the questions, answers and comments from all members of the group.

Family Dinner Box is a great way to help students talk spontaneously about their family in a natural, casual and friendly fashion.

Recommended level: Junior High to Adults

You can order Family Dinner Box from Little America.
