Conversation Cards

Need a good way to get the conversation rolling at the dinner table or cocktail hour? Try our conversation cards! These are an easy way to get your kids (and friends) to open up about...well, everything!

What You Need:
  • Deck of cards
  • Modge Podge
  • Paper Scraps

First, print your questions out (you can do handwritten as well). Measure a scrap of paper to fit your card and modge podge around the playing card. Be sure to seal the edges around the card so it doesn't peel back.

Apply a layer of modge on the top of the card and then place your printed question on the card; followed by another layer of modge podge. After the top dries, turn over and modge podge the back of the card. Modge Podge works nicely because it gives that laminated feel to the cards.

*We also made a packet tied with a ribbon - if you want to punch a hole to tie with a ribbon - be sure to do this before you do the modge podge*

This is a great project for any type of get together because you can pick questions that correlate with the theme; bachelorette parties, happy hours, baby showers, children (and adult) birthday parties!

Have a family dinner? We used questions like, "What is your favorite thing to do with your Dad", "What is the nicest thing your Mom does for you".

Having a couple's night out? Use questions like, "Which character from the Breakfast Club would you be" or "What famous chef would you like to have cook your dinner".

How about your tween's slumber party? "Team Edward or Team Jacob" and "If you could dress like any teen star, who would it be".

Hope these cards help you and your loved ones get chatty!

Pin It!
