KidTalk Conversation Cards

kid-talk-cards.jpgMy thoughtful friend Kathy included this deck of cards in a gift for our family for our drive to Ohio. I did a trial run at Pizzeria Uno the other night with my other friend Cathy, her two daughters and Maggie. It really was fun.

Here is a sample card:

Tootsie Rolls have been around for more than 100 years. They were invented in 1896 by candy maker Leo Hirschfield. He named them after his young daughter Tootsie.

If you could invent a new candy, what ingredients would you use? After whom would you name it?

We all enjoyed answering the questions. as well as hearing others’ answers.  By the end of the evening Cathy’s daughter Emily even had a label design for her candy. Very fun.

Just thought I’d pass it along if you’re looking for something you can keep in your purse and use for long trips, eating at a restaurant, or maybe even a simple family night.

Here is one place you can find them.

  1. That is the sweetest thing ever. Kathy is such a good egg! Sounds like fun for the readers among us. I’ll have to take a look at the site to see if they have anything for the non-reading/ever-moving/ever-talking toddler types for our trips to PA (and Ohio). 🙂

  2. Is there a teenage version. You know there are candies called Runts, rights? Well, the teen version I’d invent would be called Grunts. Some days that’s all that comes out of our box on wheels!

  3. BTW, I ordered the kid version right after reading your post.They look really versatile across the age span. Plus a lot quicker to dump a few into a bowl at the table than sit and think up and write my own!
    Thanks for the tip, Laurie and kathy!
