OUR MOMENTS is a series of thought provoking games developed by people just like you for you and your loved ones.
I’m Alan. My partner and I have 3 kids, we both work and needless to say, we all spend much more time with other people than we do as a family.
We found we were losing the ability to communicate as a family on any level that didn’t involve schedules, car pools or work.
If you know what I’m saying, CLAP!
O.k. I heard that…
We had to MAKE TIME for family and rebuild what we knew was so important to keeping us together as a family!
Something had to change.
We began by putting aside time to ask questions about each other, things we’d never thought to ask before and before long we were actually involved in full scale discussions that introduced us to our children and their lives away from us.
Along the way, we discovered the art of asking questions in such a way that the kids actually wanted to answer us.
We developed a game based on these principles.
Here it is for you. Our game that we created and which enriched our family bond.
We want you to have the same experience.
The questions here are intended to open up your hearts and minds and to really hear what the members of YOUR family are telling you.
There are no hard and fast rules except that you have to listen and try really hard not to be judgmental.
So, relax and enjoy the journey.
Put away the cellphones and stop talking “Emojis”. You’ll be amazed at the things you never knew about the people closest to you.
We currently have 4 OUR MOMENTS decks for Families, Kids, Couples and an adult version, each one with 100 icebreaker questions.
Join us in our quest to keep the door open for the people closest and most important to us to come through at any time.
Everyone needs to know that they have someone they can rely on.
A GAME OF CONVERSATION STARTERS FOR GREAT RELATIONSHIPS WITH YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS
Put away the cell phones, iPads and video games and get back to the basics of family life.
Whether with your immediate family or extended family. Get everyone involved, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, parents and grandparents.
Play with other families.
The perfect way to get to know the people you love.
100 THOUGHT PROVOKING QUESTIONS
When we, the adults – parents or grandparents – ask the kids.. “How was your day?” We invariably get the answer “Okay!”.
From that we learn nothing.
If we really want to know we have to ask relevant questions and sometimes we just don’t have enough time or information to form the basis for a significant conversation.
OUR MOMENTS Families helps you to create an open atmosphere and leave the door open for communication at all times not just when you are playing.
HAVE FUN – AT HOME OR AWAY!
This is the perfect game to play on family night, it’s a fun family dinner table game.
Take it on your next road trip – it’s the perfect car game for kids, for any long distance travel or just on a rainy day.
The easy to pack and easy to carry box makes this a road trip essential and perfect for a long airplane ride.
I-Spy is out and OUR MOMENTS FAMILIES is in for your car travel game with the kids.
This is a fun and enlightening camping game to play around a campfire with your intimate family or with friends or at your next family picnic. You’ll be surprised at some of the answers you’ll get and it will open up whole new areas of interest for older and younger members of the group.
GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER…
Get to know your children and let them get to know you.
By playing games and letting our guard down, we invite people into our inner selves. When someone understands what it is that makes YOU tick, they are far more likely to allow you into their inner space.
Reduce the gap between the generations and make sure you are the one your kids approach when they need help or want to share something exciting.
MAKE IT FUN!
There are no right or wrong answers and no lecturing is allowed.
Keep it light and have lots of fun, laugh and go off on a tangent.
Not for nothing this is called a “thought-provoking” game.
We give you the starting points but the rest is up to you.
So make this a new family tradition. You’ll be amazed at the results.
