A Fun End-of-School-Year Interview for Kids
A Fun Start of School Year Interview For Kids

For the last couple of years, I’ve been using a list of questions I put together for my now 5 year-old-daughter to ask her on the first and last day of school. When I initially shared it here, it received a lot of traffic and was pinned quite a bit on Pinterest, so I’ve shared it every first and last day since.

Some of my daughter’s responses on this school year’s first day were the same as her last day (which was last week; kindergarten here we come!), and some changed quite a bit. It’s endearing and bittersweet to see her growth just through her answers to the questions. 

(I’m putting her previous answers from the first day of this school year in italics.)

1. What is your name? Essley. Essley.
2. What grade are you in? I just graduated from Pre-K! Pre-K.
3. How old are you? 5. 4-1/2.
4. What is your favorite color? Pink and purple. Pink.
5. What is your favorite thing to do at school? Play in the kitchen. Play with my friends. And learn how to not be bad. (No comment on that one.)
6. What is your favorite activity outside of school?
Acting, ballet, jazz, tap, soccer, and swimming.  Tap, ballet, gymnastics, soccer, theatre, and swimming lessons.  
7. What do you want to be when you grow up? A dance teacher, a horticulturist, and an acting teacher. A dance teacher and an artist.
8. What is your favorite food? Tacos. Strawberries.
9. How old is your mommy? 24. (I wish!) Old.
10. What is her job? Blog poster. She works a lot on blog posts.
11. What is mommy’s favorite food? Tacos. Indian food and a lot of smoothies.

14. What is daddy’s favorite food? Tacos. Kabobs. He likes cheeseburgers.
15. What do mommy and daddy like to do? Play with us. Work. (Yikes.)

21. What is your favorite thing to do? Play. Play with my mommy.  
22. What is your favorite place you’ve ever been? The Fun Play Place. The candy store.
23. Who is your best friend? Emmett. Mommy and ….. (an endless lists of friends; too many to type.)
24. What is your favorite animal? Elephant. Tiger.
25. If you could have anything you wished for, what would it be? A unicorn. A bunny for a pet.

And because my little man is finally old enough to answer the questions as well, I’m sharing his. He has grown tremendously this year, and was so excited to answer my questions like his big sissy. (He was nowhere near ready to do the interview on his first day, and was also terrified of school. He went from weeping at drop off to only being sad on the days he didn’t have school. So proud of this guy!)
