The game is called “What If.” It is a game that sparks children’s imaginations, sharpens their brains, prepares them for new experiences, and is just plain fun. You can play What If about all sorts of things – upcoming fun things like a vacation, scary things like a trip to a new doctor, curious things like other countries, or recent not-so-good experiences like a fight with a friend.
You can play What IF anywhere – in the car, on a bus, in a waiting room, at a restaurant. No equipment is needed other than brains and willingness to use them.
All you have to do is ask a “What If” question and let your child imagine himself in that situation. For example:
What if we went to Disneyland?
What if you and your best friend had a fight?
What if we moved to Australia?
What if you had to go to a new school?
