“Guess the Category” Game
Contributed by The Family Dinner Project Team
Think of 5 things that “belong” to something. For example, a banana, a pair of shoes, a Harry Potter book, a pile of paperclips, and a box of flooring. Then have the rest of the table guess what these things belong to (answer: things in the trunk of my car).
With little kids, you can just ask them outright for a list of things in a category (example: name three things in your bed).
