21 really fun interview questions for kids to ask their friends

by

My kids are obsessed with interviewing each other. This usually takes the form of a video segment featuring costumes, microphones and various ridiculous characters. Arabella does a fantastic little old Italian grandmother character called Nonna Vecchia. And both Max and Arabella are currently speaking with a Russian accent 99% of the time after another crazy interview.

It’s fun to just ask straight interview questions of each other too. While it’s fun for them to interview each other, you might want to get in on the act too. You can interview your kid or have them interview you too! You can record your interviews on video, or write the responses in a notebook you keep just for this purpose. What a fun memento to look back on over the years.

It’s nice to do one of these interviews every year on your kids’ birthdays. It becomes a little snapshot of where they are at each year. Their answers are surprisingly different year on year.

Your older child might also like to interview all of their friends and make a notebook or video to keep. It makes a really nice gift if they interview friends at a birthday party then gift the interviews as a birthday present to the host.

These interview questions for kids should get you all started, but of course there are thousands of things you could happily ask each other.
