jmpgirl ~ family dinner game

This week over at heidiswapp.com  the team was challenged to use our paper crafting wiles to create a few games.
Yesterday Kim totally wowed with her super hero game. She is such a greatly creative mom.
And today I share a family dinner conversation game.

 Using a pedestal frame I took pretty stuff and layered it all up to have a place to house questions for my family to utilize at dinner time.

There are lots of details over on Heidi's blog...

I knew the game would need to be out to remind us to play. So it of course had to be pretty. That said I just began to layer frames and papers and tags sticking out to make the piece inviting. The kiddos have already responded to it and are intrigued. I did not add a lot of details once I started adding the cards. So the creative emphasis remained on the first part of this table top project.


Now here I have to plug the stencils...if you do not own a stencil (or three, or four...) you are missing on sheer creative fun and play. I used the Polka Dot 6x6 Stencil here to add a bit more detail and depth to the inside of the InstaFrame window. If you start to play with these stencils you will just find yourself making up reasons to use them on projects. Heidi's self paced class is still available for download and is really a no miss class.

O.K...now on to the questions...

This particular project holds about 25 questions, but because all are attached by book rings the cards can be changed out or added too...or just about anything you desire.

I made them available as a free download on my post today.

 Would love to hear how you creatively bring everyone together for dinner. I know in our home dinner together has always been important, but I am catching a view that our times together may be fewer and fewer as they are getting older and I now have two of mine in high school.

So I encourage you...
create something fun for your family.
and if your family is you and your spouse...there is absolutely no reason why this idea cannot enrich your meals together.
