Birthday Interview - 20 Questions!

I've read the idea before to interview your child every year on their birthday. Some people go so far as to even record their child's answers on video. I've half-heartedly interviewed Molly(5) before, but had trouble thinking up questions. I think she was a little young, too. This year, however, I finally found an actual list of 20 questions to ask your child each year on Pinterest!

I tweaked a couple of the questions and interviewed Molly on her 5th birthday. Her answers were so sweet and sincere! I thought she might give some silly answers but she took the process very seriously! I plan to print out a nice copy of her answers and include them in her baby book each year. Hopefully I can start asking Ben(2) the same questions once he turns five... or maybe sooner.

My favorite answers of Molly's were her favorite holiday: Mother's Day!! ... and what does she want to be when she grows up? A farmer... except a farmer with penguins on her farm!

Here is the list of questions I used for my child's Birthday Interview:

1. What is your favorite color?

2. What is your favorite toy?
3. What is your favorite fruit?
4. What is your favorite tv show?
5. What is your favorite thing for lunch?
6. What is your favorite outfit?
7. What is your favorite snack?
8. What is your favorite game?
9. What is your favorite animal?
10. What is your favorite book?
11. What is your favorite song?
12. Who is your best friend?
13. What is your favorite movie?
14. What is your favorite thing to do outside?
15. What is your favorite drink?
16. What is your favorite holiday?
17. What do you like to take with you to bed at night?
18. What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?
19. What do you want to eat for your birthday dinner?
20. What do you want to be when you grow up?

I started asking my kids questions at 3 1/2! Mid three year olds have the funniest answers to things! You know how I celebrate half years with cupcakes...that's when I ask the questions! Its fun to look back and read all of brendens answers over the years! some of my favorite answers are always around what he wants to be when he grows up, what he thinks is GROSS!!!, also I ask him to just tell me something, anything...and thats where the imagination kicks in! =)
I'm glad you started this with molly! So fun!
