These fun conversation starters for kids are great if you want to encourage them to talk more and open up about their experiences.

Children love talking and these conversation topics for kids are a brilliant way to get them to use their imagination and get them talking, which is why this is a brilliant question game for kids!

By posing some fun, introspective and downright ridiculous questions, we’re engaging children with topics they enjoy and allowing their minds to go freely. Some of the answers to these questions should make for interesting conversations!

If you’re a teacher and looking for a great activity to do with your class, these children’s conversation starters are perfect. I used them a lot when I was an ESL teacher in Barcelona and the discussions that resulted were fun and great at improving my student’s fluency in English!

We’ve curated this list of kids conversation starters so you don’t have to think up questions on the spot. We hope you and your kids enjoy them, and the conversations they provide.
