Activity

Summary: Spark conversation by having your children answer questions written on a beach ball.

 

Activity: You can undertake this activity with one child or multiple children, either siblings or friends. Write a selection of questions on a large ball. A beach ball and an erasable marker work best. You can download a series of questions to use with young children here, and for teens here. Roll the ball to a family member. Have them answer the question under their thumb. If it feels natural to go beyond a simple answer to the question and into conversation, do so. But play it by ear. Sometimes just a quick answer is enough.
