Conversation starters

During this COVID-19 time we are spending A LOT of time at home.  We would like to help you start some interesting conversations with your family.  Pick 2 or 3 of these from the list and bring them to the dinner table, when you are out for a safe walk or turn off the screens and TALK to each other!
