100 Fun Birthday Interview Questions for Kids (+ Free Printable Questionnaire)

“The days are long but the years are short.”

Plus, not only do children learn vocabulary best through interaction, but these questions are an easy way to connect deeply. Do it yearly, and you have a wonderful tradition that creates special memories for years!
