How to Make Dinner More Fun

fun family dinners

The dinner table is an ideal gathering place to connect with your family and create lasting memories. But with all of the tasks and responsibilities we have as parents, it is easy to fall into a “dinner-time rut” and lose some of that excitement and joy.

Not long ago, my sister-in-law and I spent the evening brainstorming ways we can add a little more fun to our dinner-time routines- activities we could do at the table, games, themed dinners, fun foods to eat etc. When we had a pretty extensive list of ideas, so we hit the ground running and tried them out on our individual families.

And guess what………. it was a stinkin’ BLAST!!!!!!!

We had such a great success with our individual families, we decided to write a book all about it! Introducing……….
