Discover Interests

Purpose:
To help your tween or teen discover and develop his or her identity, interests and passions.

Activity Instructions:
Sit down with your child and come up with a list of intriguing ideas and subjects that he might want to explore. You can flip through magazines or search the Internet for appropriate and informative websites.

Once she's narrowed his list of interests down to his passions, gather related pictures, words and phrases to make a collage. Have your child hang the board in her room or closet and encourage her to use it as inspiration to pursue his fascinations.

Materials:

  • Poster board
  • Magazines
  • Pictures/photos
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick

Outcome:
Your child can use the "interest board" to help her focus on her emerging interests. This activity can also inspire your child to set personal goals toward involvement with the subjects she's passionate about.
