Want to send your kid back to school sharper than ever?
Do it with our monthly feature BrainPlay. You can download it here or find the print version on page 39 of the July 2018 issue of Highlights.
You can count on BrainPlay to keep your kid’s creative juices flowing. Each and every question in BrainPlay will encourage your child to look inward or outward, think deeply, or freely, to be witty or serious, or make any connection that comes to mind in the spur of the moment.
Your child can read the prompts now and respond to them later, if that makes him happy. He can share his thoughts with you or keep them private. No pressure. It’s all good. No one’s keeping score. There are no wrong answers.
Of course, it might be fun to share your own inspired thinking with your curious youngster. You could, for example, tell your child:
- What flavor of ice cream best matches your personality.
- What you think a potato, a bandanna, and an octopus have in common.
- Reveal where you feel happiest.
