September Table Topics are ready to ignite conversation at the dinner table! Each month conversation starters are shared with you to use at the table to get your kids talking. This month’s table topics are “If you could be…” wonderings.
Back to school season is a great time to start the table topic project if you haven’t done so already. The kids are going back to school and new routines are being put into place. Why not spark dinner conversation each night this fall!
These topics would also make great lunch box cards to send to school with your child. Think of the conversations they could have with their friends.
All you need to do is print the September Table Topics. Cut them apart. Place them in a decorative container and set it on your dinner table. Or, if you are sending in a lunchbox, keep them in a container close to your packing station. Each day, select one topic to pop inside the lunchbox to spark some lively conversation in the lunchroom. Now, let’s get talking!
