Twenty Questions: Interviewing Your Child

ages 2-6


Video camera (optional)

Activity Detail

This is a neat exercise to do with or without a video camera, although a recording of this would make a great gift when your child grows up. Explain to your child that you would like to interview him or her (you can talk about what this means and why people give interviews). Ask questions like: 'What do you want to be when you grow up?' 'Do you want to do one thing or lots of different things?' 'Where will you want to live?' 'What will your house be like?' 'Your friends/ neighbors?' 'Will you have hobbies?' 'What do you want the world to be like?' Invite your child to interview you, too. They can ask questions about when you were little.

A good opportunity to get them to tell you what they're thinking.

Children love to talk about themselves! Watching recorded footage in later years to come is so fun for everyone.

For younger children, you can ask simpler questions like "What is your favorite food?" and "What is your favorite thing to play?".

This would be a fun activity to do every year. See how the answers change! If you do not own a video camera, you can write the answers down and keep them in the child's baby book.

You can also write down the answers to the questions to be saved in a scrapbook.
