A few days ago my family received the Family Honor Plate & Table Thyme Discussion Cards through the mail. The inner package was wrapped in yellow paper and my kids were super excited to see what it was. The idea of the plate set is to make a point of seeing the good character your child or children in the family are doing throughout their day and honoring them with the plate. The discussion cards offer family’s a way to connect screen-free through all sorts of different questions to answer and discuss over the dinner table.
-The Family Honor Plate –
The Family Honor Plate set is very nice. It comes with everything you need to paint and decorate the plate however you see fit. You could paint this together or do it on your own and surprise the kids with it later. There are step-by-step instructions to follow that are easy to understand.
There is nothing overwhelming about the set in the least bit. Don’t worry if you feel like you can’t paint or draw. If a mistake is made before baking you can use Windex and clean everything off and start all over again.
As for design ideas, you can simply paint stripes, polka dots, etc. Maybe include each person in the families favorite color on the plate! However even if you can draw really well, there’s nothing wrong with going with my suggested designs ideas either. Sometimes simple is the best.
Everything The Kit Includes:
8 Vibrant USA-made enamel paints
3 Paint brushes
1 Painter’s palette
1 Plate stand
Bonus Pack of Sample Table Thyme Discussion Starters
Online Support through Parenting and Instructional videos created to encourage and support you.
I really love that the plate has the “Fruits of the Spirit” on it which is Galatians 5:22. It’s a wonderful reminder for us all the be practicing them daily and becoming more Christ-like. I found the paints and brushes to be high quality. The plate came out of the oven beautifully after it was painting!
My family has been very excited about implementing the plate into our days. I like a stand was included so I can keep the plate in a place my kids can reach it in case they want to honor someone in the family too. It’s a great be on the lookout tool to celebrate the wonderful character attributes exhibited in our family and to keep encouraging those.
-Table Thyme Discussion Cards-
My family likes the Table Thyme Discussion Cards! There are so many different questions to ask and answer. There are questions on both sides of the card. The cards all have the wording Connect • Enjoy • Laugh • Learn • Share • Listen across the bottom. Each question asked ends with a why. The why is where the deepness comes from.
The cards all well made with sturdy cardstock like paper. The slide forward and behind the large rings with ease. Once you finish going through one side, you can turn it over and start going through the questions on the backside. It’s well-made and will take much not wearing out very easily.
I like how the cards are now taking residence on the table permanently and we are being screened free during this time to talk together. There’s no doubt a family will learn and draw nearer and grow closer together through this activity. I feel children of all ages 4 and up can benefit and answer the questions.
– Final Thoughts –
Overall, the cards and plate set would make a wonderful family gift to purchase for your own family or for a family you know! Each of these items has certainly been a real winner with my family. With Christmas around the corner now is a good time to check these out.
A great idea is to get together with a group of friends with families and have a painting party together especially since there’s a 20% discount on multiple orders! The Plate set is $39.95 and the cards are $19.95 as of this posting.
