Why do children always ask strange questions

42 fun questions for kids to help understand better and have fun

Vacation time also means a lot of waiting time - for example at train stations or simply in the means of transport that bring us to our destinations. Very often we as parents ask ourselves how we can keep the children busy and conjure up books, tablets, games and other distractions out of our backpacks. Everything is great and beautiful ...

... but have you ever considered that even 6 year olds can have a good conversation?

I have wonderful conversations with children! Probably because I am an eternal child myself ... but also because I like to learn about them. These little beings usually have great thoughts that also open up new perspectives for me. The principle is simple: ask a question. And then also ask "Why?" After an answer.

After 3 questions at the latest, children come up with the idea that they are also asking questions. And the "why?" Comes by itself anyway.

So that it is not so difficult for you, if you want to start this off, I will tell you my favorite questions for children from 6-7 years:
