Use weirdness to spark curiosity

Kids love weird stuff. The weirder, the better. So why not use all the weirdness in the world to spark your kid’s curiosity—as well as help them celebrate differences? Check out these oddball ideas.

What’s weirder than a seal riding on a sea turtle? Share this video with your kids, then talk about other weird animal behavior they’ve observed. (Bonus if they can relate it to their own weird behavior!)

Celebrate all the weirdness in your family by reading Weird But True! facts together. Ask your kids to decide whether these nuggets are true for them (they probably know somebody who burps after a great meal!), then have them identify three positive things that make your family different from others.
