My son is growing faster than I can believe. And it's amazing how his young mind works... I love listening to him explain his thoughts on some of the bigger things in life. It's interesting how a simple question from me can spark a half hour long conversation about a topic (or various topics). In the spirit of these conversations, I've created a 50 questions to ask your kids printable to share with you. You can are use it to start conversations with your kids during dinnertime or snuggle time, or you can ask your kids these questions each year and see how their answers change as they grow.
Some of my favorite questions from the printable are:
If you were invisible for a day, what would you do?
What is the worst smell in the world?
Where do babies come from?
Were there dinosaurs on Noah's ark?
If you could, what two animals would you combine?
If you had a million dollars, what would you spend it on?
Why do people get old?
If your pet could talk, what would it say?
If you had super powers, what would they be?
What's the best thing about being a kid?
Why do people have different color skin?
Who is someone in history that you'd like to be friends with? Why?
If you could be president for the day, what would you do?
What is something that you don't understand about grownups?
If you had your own country, what would it be called?
If you had to give away all of your toys but one, which one would you keep?
What do you think Heaven is like?
Do you think that telling the truth is always the right thing, even if it hurts someone's feelings?
What's the greatest thing about being you?
I'm still working through this list with Bear. I'd love to hear what cute, funny, or surprising answers your little ones come up with in response to these questions!
