10 Topics to Jumpstart Dinnertime Conversations

February 4, 2022

If you made a “no cell phones at the dinner table rule”, we’re here to help with some ways to jump start your family conversations. Every week we'll be featuring our conversation starters here on the Dinnerbell blog. What's a conversation starter, you ask? After a long day, we know it's hard to come up with a question that doesn't result in a yes or no answer. We've pulled together some of our favorite jokes, trivia, and open-ended questions for you to use with your family. Check them out below!


  • Why is the obtuse angle sad? (Because it's never right) 
  • How does the ocean say hi? (It waves!) 
  • Why is Cinderella bad at soccer? (Because she's always running away from the ball) 


  • What is the largest living animal? (The blue whale, and it can measure as much as 100 feet) 
  • Where is the largest active volcano in the world? (Hawaii) 
  • Which famous soft drink was invented in 1892? (Coca-Cola)
  • Where were French fries invented? (Belgium) 


  • What is top of your bucket list?
  • If you could be in the Olympics for any sport, what sport would you want to compete in?
  • If you could have dinner with any Olympic athlete, who would you want to have dinner with? What would be on the menu?

We hope that along with your Dinnerbell dinner delivery, we can add some dinnertime joy with our conversation starters. Check back weekly for a new set of topics to use with your family. Have a favorite fact, joke, or trivia question that you'd love to share? Drop it in the comments section below!
