Print these cards and use them to help you spark conversations during everyday routines. After kids answer the question on the card (their answer may be just one word—that’s okay!), keep going! (for instance, “Oh, you were a superhero named Bobo? What were your superpowers? How did you use them?” or “Right, you’re going to see your friend Frida in school today. What will you play with together?”)

You can keep these cards all in one place, or post in various places (for  instance, the “bathtime” card can go near the bathtub).
