Choc ‘n’ Chat Conversation Cards

faith-in-homes-1How well do families know each other – their likes and dislikes, hopes and fears? Words don’t come easy sometimes, so FaithinHomes has come up with an exercise that is a fun and easy way to chat and get to know more about each other.

This can be done around the dining table, sitting in the lounge, in the car, on a picnic or anywhere you fancy. And it doesn’t have to involve chocolates – it could be anything your family enjoys.

To start, each person in your family group needs a few small pieces of paper or card and a pen/pencil. Next, on each piece of paper, you all write a question about something you would like to know about the others in your family group.

Questions might include:

  • Which part of the day do you like the best?
  • Who would you most like to meet?
  • Where would you most like to go on holiday?
  • Who do you most admire, and why?
  • What are you most frightened of?
  • If you were God for the day, what three things would you do, and why?
  • If you met Jesus in the street, what would you want to ask him, and why?

Mix up everyone’s cards and place them in a pile face down. Now, take it in turns to pick up a card. Read it out loud and then give everyone a turn to answer, including the person who picked up the card.

After you have all answered, say, three questions, you all get to choose a chocolate to enjoy (or your food of choice).
