One of the ways to put the THANKS back into Thanksgiving mentioned in an earlier article is having paper and pencil at each dinner place so that those gathered could share what they were thankful for during the meal. A fun alternative to that exercise is the use of Thanksgiving conversation cards. Get some thought-provoking and potentially hilarious conversations going at the dinner table by reading questions out for the gobblers to answer while they’re eating. Here are some links to printable conversation cards or topic lists to get you started.

Whether you print off the conversation starters above or just use them as inspiration for your own conversation cards, Thanksgiving dinner chat is bound to be more interesting than ever! The upside to using conversation cards is the interesting things you learn about family and friends. The downside to using them is you might find out you’re more like that crazy cousin than you would have liked to know!
