If you haven’t checked out our monthly feature BrainPlay lately—you’re missing an opportunity to see how we inspire your kid’s out-of-the-box thinking with 11 probing questions that promote creativity and curiosity. 

This month’s column takes kids on a thoughtful and imaginative journey. We asked: “How do you decide whether to try a new food?” We prompted kids to think about the statement: “The sun is sinking fast.” And we invited kids to think like a scientist: “Name some things that block light. Name some that block sound.” We also encouraged our readers to observe their surroundings, asking: “If you see balloons in front of a house, what might be happening there?”
