Conversation starters are a great way to keep family and guests entertained before during and or after your meal. These printable cards give you non-controversial conversation topics and things to talk about. There is no wrong answer, just interesting topics–and who knows what all you will learn about each other.
Your guest will also have fun testing their knowledge with this printable Thanksgiving Trivia game.
There are 30 questions to start a conversation that are easy and fun to answer. Some might make you think a little bit harder. My favorite question that I cannot wait to ask is “If you had intro music, what would it be and why?”
Place a question at each person’s plate, or have your guests pull out a question from a small decorative jar. Have fun with the questions! These conversation questions are the perfect way to get to know your guest just a bit better! Plus you won’t need to ever worry about how to start a conversation! They are especially great for teenagers who might be just learning how to start a conversation.
