BrainPlay February 2017

BrainPlay February 2017Stuck for a fun way to keep your kid mentally active on a snow day—or any other day when there’s no school, no practice, no games, no activities, nowhere to go, and not much left to do after he exhausts all the indoor and outdoor options?

Check out BrainPlay, our monthly feature—you’re going to love it! There, you (and your child) will find a series of carefully crafted questions that go from the truly sublime (When do you try especially hard to behave? Why?) to the utterly ridiculous (Do animals have dessert?). They’re fun to answer.

Find BrainPlay online here, or on page 6 of the February issue. Then use the Q’s to strike up a conversation. Do-overs are welcome, and feel free to answer a few questions yourself if your child wants you to. And relax. There are no wrong answers.
