Table Talk – Connection Cards – Connection: One Question At a Time
What used to be a time of family-gathering and conversation: sharing our gratitude and thoughts turned into an isolated time for me. I knew I had to bring back family dinners and I knew I needed a ritual to get me there. I created this deck: Connection, One Question at a Time. Connecting Beyond “How Was Your Day?”. There are almost 50 cards.
Dinner used to be my favorite part of the day as a family. But spending dinner time as the only grown up made it super easy for me to cook whatever; order in whatever; and let my kids eat whenever. What used to be a time of family-gathering and conversation: sharing our gratitude and thoughts turned into an isolated time for me. I knew I had to bring back family dinners and I knew I needed a ritual to get me there. I created this deck: Connection, One Question at a Time. Connecting Beyond “How Was Your Day?”. There are almost 50 cards. We keep them in a bag and draw one or two at dinner time. It’s brought us back together. The kids love drawing a card. I love seeing my own artwork – flaws and all – on vibrant backgrounds. I love hearing them engage in questions and curiosities with one another.
The paper will be about 18pt and super soft to the touch. Fronts and backs have questions so there are 90 questions in all.
I brought them out to a restaurant for dinner and it was beautiful to be able to bring this ritual with us even on a dinner date. I am SO EXCITED to share these with you! I can envision using them in a classroom for short breaks and open-ended discussion or as writing prompts.

Founder and principle designer, Jessica Perkins, has been creating for as long as she can remember, originally helping her mama with her handmade toy store over 20 years ago. With the birth of her children, and all the new little people in her life, Jessica found herself searching for toys that met her educational and design standards.
Inspired by these little explorers, and her understanding of Montessori and Waldorf methodologies, Jessica Perkins began making all of her creations with the belief that children make sense of their world through sensing their world. After years of making, creating, and gifting her creations to friends and family, Jessica decided to start selling her goodies. Since the launch of Mama May i in 2009, Jessica’s passion for artistic expression through toys has blossomed into a business supported by mama’s and papa’s all over the world.
With this learning through play philosophy in mind, Mama May i encourages kids, both big and small, to dive in, make a splash, a scribble, or an inquisitive fiddle on the memories we share together.
