15 Minutes : Play It : Favorites

We often play "Favorites" at our dinner table. One person asks a question such as: "What's your favorite color?" Each person (including parents) around the table answers the question, and then the next person asks another question. It's been a great way to learn more about each other in a way that even my four-year-old can participate and understand.

Some questions to get you started...
Favorite movie?
Favorite animal?
Favorite book?
Favorite sport?
Favorite season?
Favorite food for breakfast/lunch/dinner?

Occasionally, we make our game more challenging by asking: "What's Dad's favorite sport?" or "What is Matthew's favorite book?" I'm impressed at how often the kids know the facts about each other.
