We all have unused games laying around. Some have educational information cards, like Trivia. Take the cards and put a few on the table, next to salt and pepper, Interact at dinner by asking questions, the answers are on the back, you would be surprised how much kids know and how much kids love doing this.
When you know all the answers, change them out; pick up more games at yard sales. It's educational and the family does something together, a win-win situation.
