If you want your kids to sharpen their thinking skills, BrainPlay, one of Highlights’ most popular features, is definitely the place to go. The page is filled with fun—and sometimes far-fetched—scenarios that encourage kids to look at the world in new and interesting ways—and in the process become their most creative selves.

BrainPlay

This month, BrainPlay asks kids to imagine unexpected challenges (What would it be like to move at half your usual speed?); question sights and scenes they’ve grown accustomed to seeing (Why do actors in a movie or a play wear costumes? and Why do people often wrap presents?), and ponder the world around them in innovative ways (What different jobs did people do to get you the foods you ate today?).

Think your kids are up to this month’s questions? Great! Let them get started. Check out BrainPlay on page 6 of the September issue of Highlights or download the page here!
