Making Memories Around the Breakfast Table: FREE Family Conversation Starters Printables

Disclosure 1

One of the things that I have learned from being a parent over the past few years is that quality time is not synonymous with length of time spent with your kids. Quality time can come in short spurts throughout the day. Those ten minutes spent on the back porch eating an ice cream cone after dinner. Those five minutes spent talking about your day right before bed. Those ten minutes spent reading a book together. Those ten minutes spent talking on your way to and from school. Those twenty minutes spent talking at the dinner table or even the breakfast table. Breakfast time is a perfect time to catch up with your kids, learn more about one another, and prepare for the day. It’s these little moments that turn into memories that will last a lifetime.


Every day is truly a BIG day.

So today, I wanted to share with you a set of printable conversation starters that I created. Hopefully, you can use them to kick-start some fun conversations in the morning with your family.

  2. I absolutely LOVE this idea and will print them tonight. Thank you for blessing others with a free resource to encourage families to grow closer together.

  3. OH MY GOSH!!! I absolutely love these mini missions Kellogg’s is doing. I am SO into reading with kids so I just love this angle! Also your conversation starters rock!

  4. Thank you for sharing these conversation starters! We tend to focus more on dinner family time, but breakfast would be a great way for me to connect with my daughter to build up our relationship each morning, too. This is also the first that I’ve heard about the Kellogg’s Mini Missions program, but I’m going over to sign up right now!

  5. Conversation starters are a great idea! We would probably use them more at dinner, since my husband is up and out of the door before me and kiddo get up.

  6. This is such a wonderful idea! Those 10-20 minute conversations are so important, and need to be taken advantage of.

  7. Such a neat idea and great questions to start the day. So glad I found your blog 🙂 Your superhero printables were a big hit also. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I like the idea of conversation starter. This is such a great idea. I have to try this at my house.

  12. We have just started to have family dinners at our house and even with just 3 of us it is my favorite part of the day. These conversation starters are very cute and practical!

  13. Love the conversation starters! We usually play high-low (best part of your day, worst part of your day). It keeps us connected to what the kids are dealing with or are excited about in any given day.

  14. I love this idea except i think i will use it at dinner time due to the fact breakfast time is always so busy in my house. But very awesome idea to get the family to come together .
