Conversation Hearts

I originally saw this on a fun website and thought it would be a fun reminiscing or getting to know you activity.

dinner conversation hearts questions

Construction Paper

Cut out lots of paper hearts of varying sizes.  On one side, write cute Valentine's Day sayings such as "Be Mine," "U R Cute," "Sweet Heart," I Luv U" etc.  On the other side, write various discussion questions.

Sample questions include:
What is one thing you could never live without?
What is/was your favorite school subject?
If you could visit any country, where would you go and why?
If you could be any animal, which animal would you be?
Pick one adjective to describe your personality.
What is your favorite childhood memory?
What is your favorite food?
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
What do you remember most about your wedding day?
What was the most awkward first date you ever went on?
What color best describes your personality?
The list is endless!! Adapt it to meet the needs of your patients!

This could also be adapted to whatever theme you're discussing that day.  For example, when discussing coping skills you could write questions about coping skills.  Or anger management, dealing with depression, emotions, etc.

Another modification would be to make the questions in group one day and answer them in the next group session.  That way the patients can create the questions they want answered.  (Just make sure that all questions are appropriate!!)
