Create a greater sense of connection between your family members with these fun family conversations starters for New Years Eve (or Day!)
They’re especially good for encouraging tweens and teens to join the conversation, sharing their own thoughts about and memories of the year that was. Plus of the questions provide a great prompt for thinking about plans goals for the year ahead.
They make a great addition to your plans for seeing in the new year, just like our fun list of New Year’s Eve Games for Families.
Plus we’ve included all 24 questions as a series of handy, printable cards (download instructions below). Simply print them out, cut them apart and place them into a bowl.
As with our tween conversation starters, remember to keep conversation light, especially when involving teens and tweens. Invite each friends and family member to each take a turn to choose a card to ask of the group.
