65 Easy Conversation Starters for Kids to Make New Friends
It’s the one thing that both kids were worried about when we moved.
“But I don’t know anybody. Will I make any friends?”
Remember how hard it was to make friends when you were a kid? When I moved to Florida at age 10, I was hurt and angry. I had left all of my childhood friends behind, and I remember how hard it was to start over and make new friendships. Irony is, I just did that same move to my 10-year old son and 6-year old daughter.
We moved this week. And one of the biggest factors in choosing our new home was our kids. We wanted them to not just be but thrive in a community filled with kids, potential friendships and a lifetime of wonderful childhood memories. To be honest, I’m scared for them. Part of me, that 10 year old girl is reliving those hard times. I don’t want that for them.
But friendship is one of the most important things we will have in this life. While I may not be able to hold their hands as they discover new friends in this chapter of their lives, I can provide tools to help encourage friendship. Grab these 65 easy conversation starters for kids to help encourage them to make new friends, beyond the ‘Hi my name is…what’s yours?’
