We love to play board games, cards, and dice. We now have dinner conversation, tv off. That is when we share feelings, how our day went, what new thing they learned and I sometimes share an animal fact. We have a "conversation topic" vase I keep on the table with strips of paper that either have a question that requires thought or animal facts. They love the jar, its getting empty quick :)
