We all know, dinner time is the most important time and probly the only time during the day where you can get your entire family on a table and spend time, have fun and interact. In the Crazy Mom’s house, dinner is a must as a family !!! I will not allow anyone skip dinner, eat early or whatever the reason may be. Of course I make exceptions if one of the boys spends the night a friend’s house or if there are school activities, but just because you don’t want to have dinner with the family is not excuse!!! I remember a few years ago, hubby always had dinner ready and him and the kids ate before I even got home from the office; I was so up sad, because this is the only time during the day where we all will be able to sit down and spend time together. Finally he realized and now everyone is waiting for me to get home from the office. I love our dinner time, I get to catch up on current events, news from school, what happened at work/ school that day or just all kind of chit chat, no phone call allowed and no visitors.. just my family!!!
I recently was approached about a game called Gather ’round Dinner Game by Family Fun Time. I was excited to have a dinner time conversation starter that got everyone hyped up and talking. Once the game arrived that evening I put it in the middle of the table, and the Tween and Teen immediately started pushing the button and giggled over the questions like ” name the 7 continents” or “Say 3 things that you are good at” and many many more, this game includes 11 discs with 12 questions on each for a fun filled dinner time with lots of laughter.
The game has a button in the middle that you push and wherever the light stops that’s your question for that round. You can make it as simple as possible by allowing everyone to answer or put a time limit on for everyone to answer within 30 seconds or whatever rule you come up with. This is a fun game; my entire family got laughs out of this game and the best part, I was able to learn more about the kids that they may not share with me like “Name a relative you would like to see more often and why?” or “Guess everyone’s favorite fruit, vegetable.. etc”… this is a wonderful conversation starter.
This is what’s included in the game:
- The game piece, which also doubles as a storage case
- 11 discs with 12 questions
- 2 AA batteries
This game won’t take much space on your table and you can actually take with you in a bag if you are out and about, I think it would also be a fun to have in the car while you are waiting in line at the bank, or waiting for the older kids to get off the bus, or while you are at the soccer/ baseball fields to keep the siblings occupied… Wonderful idea. This game retails for $24.95 and can be purchased through Amazon.com; for more information check out Family Fun Time online, and show them some love on their brand new Facebook page.
