50+ Random Questions and Conversation Starters (Kid-Friendly)


50+ Random Questions and Conversation Starters (Kid-Friendly)

We're always looking for ways to engage, connect and make our kids laugh. Having a stash of random questions works great for all the above. We love asking conversation starter questions, telling funny jokes and would you rather questions during:

  • Road trip entertainment
  • Mealtime conversation
  • Waiting in long lines
  • Car rides to/from school
  • You get the drift...

It's a good opportunity to bring up topics that don't normally come up in conversation. We end up learning new things about each other, discovering problems we never knew existed and most of all, having huge belly laughs together. 

So here it is, 50+ random questions and conversation starters to ask your kids, spouse, friends, colleagues, strangers...etc. 

Ready or not, let's get random...
