Fun Questions To Ask Kids


Kids ask us 100’s of questions a day. Some studies even suggest that preschoolers ask around 300 questions a day!

Let’s turn the tables and ask our kids some questions. 

Some of these questions for kids will really delve into your child’s personality, therefore getting to know them even better.

Others are just plain funny questions to let kids use their imagination.

I like asking 3-4 of these questions at the dinner table to get the whole family involved. It is a fun time that we all enjoy.

These are also great questions to ask on long car rides. 

Kids love to be interviewed!

It lets them know that you are interested in who they are. 

Don’t forget to play along and let your child know your answer.

Kids love to know that their parents have silly ideas, too. 

So skip the “how was your day” and ask your kids these fun questions instead!

Conversation Starters For Kids

We hope you loved all of these questions for kids!

You can use these questions as conversation starters for kids to share their feelings and experiences with you. 

Not only will you have fun, but it is also a great way to bond with children. 

With my kids, I use this list for my question of the day that I always ask my kids at the dinner table.

I recommend finding the perfect time, like at the dinner table, bathtime, or even bedtime, to start a question of the day routine with your kids.

By making it a regular part of your routine, it can be a fun part of the day that your whole family enjoys and your kids look forward to.

To help you out, we have a free printable with all of these questions in the Resource Library.

You can sign up here, and an email with the link and password to the Resource Libary will be sent shortly!
