Who are You?

Here’s a fun game to play at the table tonight that might just give you a little insight into what your kids think about themselves (and about you too!!)
Round One: Describe yourself in three adjectives (an adjective is a word used to describe a noun). My personal favorites include “juicy,” “crunchy” and “luscious.” If your kids are old enough, try to challenge everyone to use words that are a little more descriptive than the simple ones like “smart,” “pretty,” and “athletic.” This is also a great time to talk about what a thesaurus is and even pull one out to use at the table.
Round Two: Assign three adjectives to everyone else at the table. Try not to repeat the exact words used in round one. Again, a thesaurus comes in handy here!
Round Three: Pick three adjectives that describe who you would like to become. For example, if you don’t have the best singing voice and can’t play an instrument, you might wish that you could add “melodious” or “harmonious” to your list.
