If You Make It Fun, Kids Will Come Back for More!

I’m not great at naturally having fun with my kids. It’s not easy for me to sit still long enough to complete a whole fun task…playing a game, building a fort, cooking new foods etc. However, when you ask your kids funny questions, you can do it ANY TIME! It’s really a great way to have fun doing whatever you are doing…eating dinner, driving in the car, doing laundry, or just hanging out.

I’d love to hear some of the fun questions you like to ask your kids!
