Dinner Conversation Starters: Quality Time With Family (Free Printable)

Lately I have been blessed to be able to have dinner with all of my family at the same time. We have been spending a lot of time together so we started keeping a mason jar full of dinner conversation starters as a fun game. Today I’m providing you with a fun printable that you can use to chat with your family too!

Since being quarantined together, the one thing that I have done right is make dinner and have us eat together as a family. Prior to this my husband would come in after dinner time. Or my kids would eat at their grandmothers house, or I’d be out at an event and eat there.

Our dinner schedules were completely all over the place, and that was what we were used to. Social distancing has changed these habits for the good. Everyone is (pretty much) eating the same dinner, and all 5 of us (including baby in her high chair) are meeting every single night at the dinner table.

We have been playing some fun games like finish the sentence and name an animal/celebrity/ for every letter of the alphabet. Lately I’ve been wanting to take more advantage of this special time with the kids because who knows how long it will last–and if we will ever have this time again.

Dinner Conversation Starters

In this free printable you can print out 50 different questions, 50 different conversation starters and have your family and friends chat about so many different things, while getting to know more about them.


Print out the pages and cut out each question on the dotted lines. Fold and place in a mason jar or bowl for random grabbing. You could even keep the bowl on the table for use at the next meal.

Some of the questions included on the Conversation Starters printable include:

What is your biggest fear?

If you could trade places with someone in this family who would it be and why?

If you could be famous, what would you like to be famous for?

What is the nicest thing someone has done for you?

If a genie would grant you one wish, what would you wish for?

If you had to do one thing for a whole day, what would it be?

What is the kindest thing you have ever done for someone else?

If you only ever had to do one chore forever, which one would you choose?
