Looking for conversation topics? Or just want to get to know your kids other better? Here are a ton of questions for kids!
Kids say the silliest things and if your kids are anything like mine, I often feel like they will never shut up 😂
However, sometimes you want to reel in the conversation, or maybe start a conversation between kids that don’t know each other very well.
I love asking open questions for kids. You truly never know what will come out of their mouth and it can lead to some priceless memories!
How to use these questions
These questions can be used as funny ways to pass a boring wait or car ride, as a kids question of the day at school or camp, as icebreaker questions or getting to know you questions, or just as fun and silly questions for kids to answer!
If you want to turn this into a how well do you know your kids game, have someone ask them the questions and record the answer and then bring you in to guess their answer for each question! This is a lot of fun for extended or large family get togethers.
Also, a note on closed ended questions vs open ended questions – some kids will respond well to either, but some kids need a little prodding to say more than a few words. Remind them to share their why for their answer!
