It’s hard enough to get your ‘tween to talk to you at times but try getting to know three step kids! Sure, there’s the polite conversation, but how do I really get to know them?
Enter Family Talk, one of the Around The Table Games created by Beth Daniels. Family Talk is a series of small cards attached on a ring that ask questions designed to help family members get to know each other better. Questions range from the serious such as “Currently what is your favorite family tradition and why?” to the silly “If everyone in your family became dogs what kind of dog would they be and why?” Not only did these cards help me get to know my step kids better but it was a great way to pass some time on our recent 18 hour drive to Florida!
There are several games including Grandparent Talk, a great way for kids to get to know their grandparents better, as well as Buddy Talk, Camp Talk and Teen Talk. And, with the price starting at $7.99, it’s certainly more affordable than any video game out there!
Around the Table games can be purchased at Bed Bath and Beyond, Cracker Barrel and amazon.com and many specialty retailers nationwide. For more information and to find a store near you please visit www.aroundthetablegames.com.
