Our family makes a point of eating dinner together several nights a week. While sharing a few minutes together over a meal one of our favorite things to do is play a game of table topics.

Table Topics are a fun way to get kids talking at dinner time (or any other time); however, after a long day it is not always easy to think of creative questions to ask. Those nights deserve a preprinted list of questions that will add plenty of chatter and plenty of laughter to family time.
If you are anything like me it would be impossible to count the number of times you have played ‘Would you rather?’ with your children or grandchildren. Our family loves a good debate sharing why we would rather have hands for feet or feet for hands. In fact, we enjoy anytime we can think about the extraordinary or answer silly questions. We love playing table topics.
Create your own set of table topics with my free printable!
- Open my four page Table Topics PRINTABLE and print it on card stock.
- Laminate all four sheets. (Laminating them helps keep them clean and if they do get dirty the laminated strips can easily be cleaned with a damp cloth.)
- Cut out each question.
- Put the strips into your vase and place it on the table.
- Play a round of Q & A – draw a question, ask, answer, debate, laugh, repeat!
When our family plays Table Topics one person will pull a question and read it out loud. Everyone sitting at the table takes turns answering that question then a different person will pull and ask the next question. Some nights we discuss the topics so much that we only answer two questions, other nights we get through several questions.
The questions never get old. One of our repeat and most discussed questions is… If you could have any superpower what would it be? The answers have ranged from being able to fly to telekinesis.
What about you? What Superpower would you possess?
