Thanksgiving is approaching, and it may look a little different this year. It may just be your immediate family, or at the very least, a smaller gathering than normal. But there is still so much to be thankful for and a celebration with your significant other and children can be just as memorable… and probably a lot less quiet and less stressful, right? To make sure that you’re still remembering the meaning of Thanksgiving and to keep the conversation flowing around your Thanksgiving Feast, I’ve put together some printable Thanksgiving Conversation Starters.
These are perfect for family dinners leading up to Thanksgiving or even to use during Thanksgiving dinner. If you already have a Conversation Starter Jar, then simply add these conversation cards to it! If you don’t, then grab a jar and start one. I personally am a fan of having topics on hand for family dinner. I like having a range – from serious to silly. It’s a great way to keep everyone entertained at dinner and to get kids talking, when sometimes, let’s face it – they’d rather be on a device or talking with friends!
Being a busy family on the go sometimes means we only see our kids right before bedtime or in car rides between activities, especially if you have more than one child. Having family dinners together means everyone has to slow down and really take the time to enjoy each other’s company.

Personal use only. Do not alter.
Save the Thanksgiving Conversation Starters to your computer and open in Adobe Reader. Print the conversation cards and then cut. Add to a jar and set in the middle of the dinner table. During dinner, each person picks a topic and reads it aloud. Don’t rush the conversation – if someone has something to say – let them! Go around the table until the topic has been exhausted and then move on to the next person.
