50 Questions to Ask Your Tween Girl to Know What's on Her Mind

Here is a great list of questions to ask your daughter, niece, cousin, any girl in your life to get to know her even better. These questions are also great to use when you are working with a Girls With Ideas group to get to know each other even better! 

Ideas For How To Use The Questions

  • Ask one question each night at bedtime. She answers, then you answer! 
  • Print out the questions and cut them so each question is on a strip of paper. Put the papers in a bowl or mug and draw one out randomly to ask at dinner each night! 
  • Have a journal where a girl can write her answer to the question with the date and revisit that same question each year to see how her answers change! 
  • Together you can ask the same question to a variety of family members to see how everyone's results different and email or text out the results to all that answered!
  • Have your girl or group of girls come up with a short skit or music video to answer the question and videotape it! 
  • If you have a group of girls you can do the  have them each read a question and pose the question to the group. This is a great way to start or end a Girls With Ideas lesson!
