Meal-Time Activities: List Yourself

by Tiffany Rudd
My husband and I became good friends in Jr High and started dating when we were 16. When we were still in High School, my future mother-in-law gave us a fun gift that became a big part of our dating years. She gave us each a  book called List Your Self for Kids by Ilene Segalove and Charlotte Blumenfeld. The subtitle says “Listmaking as a  fun Way to Get to Know Yourself”, but for us it became a really fun way to get to know each other. We would sit together, fill out our own list (no peeking!), and then share and end up laughing and talking about our answers. Sometimes the most random and even bizarre questions create a great opportunity for getting to know someone better. And, who should we want to know better than our family? So, take this opportunity to print off a list or two before dinner. If your children are older, make enough copies for everyone to fill out their own. If you have younger children, do the activity aloud as a family with mom or dad as scribe. I hope you have as much fun as we did and learn a little more about each other!
