  1. I love the idea of a vision board for little ones, and how this could even tie into teaching about money/chores! I am taking note of the questions you ask your daughter as well. Such a sweet way to bond with your child and learn more about their dreams and desires.

      It really was sweet to hear all of her desires. I agree that it’s useful when teaching about money. Our daughter chose to save any money she receives to spend when we travel. A few of the destinations on her board are in other countries. It’s a good visual goal for her.

    I am going to do this with my son! I really want to tap into his interest. Thank you for writing this. It is an eye opener.

    I absolutely love this idea. I have 4 and a half year old twin girls that will be starting kindergarten in the fall. I am definitely going to be asking them their wishes too. Thanks for all the tips on the types of questions to ask.

  4. I talk to my children a lot about their feelings, their hopes, their wishes, etc, but I hadn’t thought of creating a vision board with them. I love this idea! Now I’m planning to create vision boards with them this summer!

  5. I really love this. I am going to plan a “girls night” with my daughters and print your questions out. I wish my mom had taken the time to ask me these things. I wonder if I was able to truly dream and plan if I would have avoided emotional decisions as a teen?

      That’s an interesting thought. I think the norm is to almost wait until we start thinking about career choices to start thinking about our dreams. More often than not though, there are desires in our hearts for years before that point that we don’t tap into at all.
