So many people spend time on their screens nowadays—screens on their cellphones, televisions, computers, and more. Conversation, sometimes, at least verbal, aloud conversation, has seem to have fallen to the wayside. So, I think it’d be a great idea to get the in-person conversation going again by playing Bridges Together Grand Conversation Cards.
Bridges Together Grand Conversation Cards are a pack of cards with each card presenting a question that is meant to get a conversation going. This would be a wonderful game for parents and grandparents to play with the kids. It would really encourage everyone to get to know one another better and learn about the other players’ lives.
How many times do kids ask their parents questions about their past? My parents and grandparents have passed away, and I don’t really remember asking them a whole lot of questions about their lives, and now I wish I had. And, how many times do parents or grandparents ask the kids about their lives? Probably more than the kids do, but they may be surprised how much they don’t know!
The following is an example of what some of the questions ask on the Bridges Together Grand Conversation Cards:
- “What do you do to make the world a better place?”
- “What is your earliest memory involving an older adult? Who was it and what were you doing? What did you learn from the experience?”
- “What is the funniest thing that happened to you when you were young?”
- “Who was your favorite teacher ever and why?”
What’s great about this pack of cards from Bridges Together is that it comes with 40 cards but it doesn’t take up that much room, so you can easily take it on trips or to Grandma’s house to encourage family time and conversation! The pack also comes in a hard, plastic case to keep the cards together. This would also make a great gift or stocking stuffer for Christmas for the grandparents, parents, and kids!
You can purchase Bridges Together Grand Conversation Cards for $10 per pack plus $3 shipping for one pack. After the first pack, the shipping varies according to how many packs you purchase. Go here to purchase them. And then let the conversations begin!
