This week’s questions will have your kids pondering the discovery of fire, smelling in color and thinking through what makes a good a friend. Hope they lead to really awesome conversations!

If you were in a place where you didn’t understand anyone and they couldn’t understand you, how would you get food?

If you had to make a boat out of things in your house, what could you use to make it?

If you could make a new discovery, what kind of discovery would you want it to be?

What do you think would be different about the world if humans hadn’t discovered how to make fire?

What character traits make for a good friend?

If your appearance completely changed overnight, would you still be you?

If you could smell in colors, what color would different things be, e.g. bubblegum or rotten eggs?

If you created a fish, what would it look like? Submitted by Olivia (6)
