101 questions and conversation starters for kidsI am so tired of my kids telling me they are bored after 5 seconds of having nothing to do.  If we go somewhere and there is a wait, they have NO patience.  Both of my girls have ADHD so that makes it even worse.   All the usual games that we used to play like I Spy, I’m Thinking Of, and Alphabet Games (where you think of words that start with each letter of the alphabet or think of a word that starts with the letter the last word ended on) are no longer of interest to them.  I have been looking for things to keep them busy lately that don’t require any supplies.  I once bought a set of conversation starter type cards that were laminated and on a ring and could be kept in my purse for when we had some time to kill.  Unfortunately, I have no idea where that ring of cards went.   Instead of trying to purchase something similar I decided to create my own list of questions, topics, etc. to use with my children.  Instead of needing to keep a ring of cards with me, I can bookmark this post so I can quickly pull up the list from my cellphone and keep my kids busy.  And the best part, they’ll be busy THINKING instead of playing electronic games that require little actual brain power. 🙂
If you have questions I should add to my list, please comment and let me know!
