Chit Chat Family Game

#ParentsEmpowered #MyDiscoveryDestination

Pre-K Adventure

This is a great habit to start YOUNG!  You may find you need to adjust the questions just a bit, but start early with setting aside certain times to play ‘chit chat’ and just ask each other questions– silly, sincere, important, unimportant. Shake it up to keep the positive energy around it, but START NOW while your kids are young!  You’ll be glad you did!

Basic Adventure

 

This Adventure is a game you can enjoy over and over again. The goal is to get kids and parents ‘chatting’ — from funny and entertaining questions to insightful and educational, asking questions can bring families together and provide lots of opportunities to CREATE and CAPTURE Memories!

 

When is a good time to play this game?

  • What is the hardest part about being a kid?
  • If you could be a superhero, what would your superpower be?
