Did you see yourself as the neighborhood reporter? Or maybe you love asking questions of everyone you meet? Interviews are a great way to capture stories and information about people. So today I’m sharing questions you can use for interviews and ideas for when to include interviews in your scrapbook pages.
Most interview questions can be used for any age, but some may be more pertinent to a certain age group. For example, these questions are great for school-age kids:
- How old are you?
- My teacher at school is:
- When I grow up I want to be:
- Favorite snack:
- Best friend:
- Favorite book:
I found this fun download (from Petite Lemon) you can use for a back to school interview.
Also, loved this cute layout that incorporated questions from a variety of interview questions lists.
Here are a few questions for adults:
- What is your full name? How was your name chosen?
- Where and when were you born? What was the town like that you grew up in?
- Did you have any nicknames as a child? Where did they come from?
- What do you remember most about your parents & grandparents? What did your parents/grandparents do for a living?
- What were your chores as a child?
- What was the first radio show/television show you heard/saw?
- What books did you read, were read to you as a child?
- What was your favorite toy? Did you have any pets as a child?
These questions came from a long list used for family history pages you can find here.
Are you getting some ideas for the types of questions to use for interviews? Lets look at some examples that also showcase when you might want to use them.
Scrapbook Pages using Interview Questions
While some of these examples were digital scrapbooking pages they used items that are easy to adapt for traditional pages using die cuts, journaling cards, and paper scraps. The Creating Keepsakes web site has a couple downloads that are perfect for this: Favorites Interview Cards and Quiz Cards.
Now that you have a few ideas, channel your inner reporter and interview those around you for your next scrapbook page.
Have fun interviewing and scrapping!
