Is it just me, or do babies seem to be born with their own big personalities and interests? While many of these develop with time, you can almost always see them lean toward what they love most by the time they are toddlers. Though you have been following and encouraging whatever interests them most, do you feel like you really know about it? 

Whether you do or do not, this batch of 54 questions is for you, as they cover all you need to ask to learn more about your school-aged grandchild’s interests and hobbies. (When you ask, add the name of the hobby/their interest into each question.)
