🧒🤔 15 Open Ended Questions to Help Make Children Think 🧠

As parents and caregivers, we all want to help our children develop critical thinking skills, creativity, and independence. Asking open-ended questions is a great way to encourage children to think more deeply and develop their own ideas.

The purpose of this exercise is to provide you with a list of 15 open-ended questions that you can use to start conversations with your child.

These questions are designed to be thought-provoking and encourage children to think outside the box.

By asking open-ended questions, you can help your child develop problem-solving skills and expand their imagination.

Here are 15 open-ended questions to get you started:

  1. What do you think would happen if animals could talk?
  2. If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
  3. How would the world be different if everyone was the same?
  4. If you could be any character from a book, who would you be and why?
