Just Between Us / A Conversation Starter
We took this card set on a family adventure with our kids (11 and 13) and can't sing the praises loudly enough! Such good conversation with a dose of humor. I want every family with tweens and teens to have this set.
Housed in an elegant keepsake box, these conversation starters can sit on display at a kitchen table or be tossed into a bag for a road trip.
Slip a conversation card into the display window and take turns answering the question. Then flip the card over for more ways to enrich the conversation. With more than 150 prompts, these cards generate many rich opportunities for connection, and because the questions are open-ended, they can be reused again and again.
I LOVE the cards and questions. My family and I have only played the game once. My kids (9 and 11) were in a “how can we annoy mom” mood and replied with goofy answers instead of serious ones.
I've used similar decks before, but this one is my favorite! It's the perfect thing for a group of middle school kids to do (lends itself well to socially distant outdoor hangouts), or for grandparents you haven't seen in awhile. It also works great for a regular night at home--breaks us out of ruts. (And while I mention middle schoolers because it's SO perfect for them, it would work for lots of other ages as well.) Love the follow-up/related questions on the back of each card, too.
