Beloved Curiosity Cards are Now an App

Whenever Rebecca P. Cohen’s younger son was bored waiting somewhere, he would always say, “Ok, Mom. Where are the Curiosity Cards?” and boredom quickly transformed into special quality time.

Designed for families and educational settings, Rebecca Plants Curiosity Cards are 50 open-ended questions help you make the most of any moment together. Simple questions yield meaningful responses that will surprise you, and you will learn more about one another. Inspired by Rebecca’s books “15 Minutes Outside: 365 Ways to Get Out of the House and Connect with Your Kids” and the early reader children’s series “PJ’s Backyard Adventures”, Curiosity Cards are a go-to resource for parents, grandparents, teachers, mentors, and caregivers.

Families have used them for meal time, hikes, camping, or when stuck in traffic or waiting in line. Teachers and caregivers use them for circle time, journaling prompts, and to practice English language conversation too. Let your imagination be your guide.

Here’s what families have to say about Rebecca Plants Curiosity Cards:

“The simple yet insightful nature of the questions make it something that my son and his friends love to respond to and play with. Whether stuck in traffic, waiting in line, or just playing in the park, we take our Curiosity Cards wherever we go.” – Jennifer

“If I am sitting with one of my children alone, sometimes they will read through a few cards and then pick one for us to talk about. Or, I have [used] them in the car or places I know we will spend time waiting. They are filled with GREAT ideas for sharing together, thinking out loud, and having fun. A great family activity and my kids and I both enjoy them very much.” – C.I.

“My grandkids loved the questions! Open ended, opinion questions help them think and express themselves. It’s ok to have different preferences and ideas. As a retired speech and language therapist, this is a valuable tool.” – Jan

“My 4-year old wanted to go through every one of them! It was really fun to hear his answers and ideas. Good family bonding moment! I can’t wait to try them out on my nieces and nephews!” – Amber

If you are looking for the physical set of cards, you won't find them; they are sold out. And why pay $14.95 when you can have the same thing wherever you go for a couple of bucks?
