Quizzes and question games are not just educative. They are also fun ways to learn new things. Any birthday party or a sleepover and other such informal gatherings could also be made fun with question games. The key is to choose the right type of game and the right type of questions. There are several standard types of question games that are popular. But you could always frame your rules and make one based on the interests of the kids in the group.
Your game, your way
If you stick with asking questions from the academics then it might sometimes get boring. If you delve deep into science that is way beyond what the kids learn at school then it might be too tough for the kids to crack. The key is to strike the right balance. Choose a fun game. When you set some flexible rules and some attractive rewards it would make things more interesting.
Choose some tough questions as well
Setting the questionnaire itself can be so much fun. Choose questions that tickle your brain. These are the questions that would make the question game worth the time. And this would also be a way to teach the kids and yourself lots of new stuff. And when you start thinking deep into one question it might lead you to an all new topic and in the end you would end up learning a lot. Once in a while breaking the monotonous daily routines and attempting to crack some tough questions would actually be a way to wind down and destress.
The above was the case with normal question games. The scenario is altogether different for “would you rather” questions. This is a versatile game that can be used in both formal and informal events. There are certain things to remember however. Rude would you rather questions should be avoided and questions that get to personal or result in controversies should be avoided.
