The Ultimate List of Would You Rather Questions for Kids (2024)

Are you looking for new ways to engage your kids during family dinner time? Do conversations during road trips and after school feel like pulling teeth?

We’ve pulled together a long, extensive list of “Would You Rather” questions for kids that can help you jump-start any conversation.

There are simple questions about daily life that even preschoolers could think about. There are questions that will get them thinking about the future. And there is a collection of funny would you rather questions that will have everyone laughing at how disgusting the options are.

These conversation starters are perfect for road trips and long rides in the car because they will get everyone talking and defending their choices instead of tuning out and watching movies.

Tips for Better Communication with Kids

When engaging your kids in conversation, there are a few ways to help improve the quality of your discussions. First of all, specific questions are way more likely to get you a response than general questions. Kids are able to recall more specific moments and memories, so asking a specific question will help them remember more clearly.

Remember that not everyone wants to talk all the time, even kids. There might be days when your children aren’t in the mood to talk. Don’t worry about it, try again later or the next day. People sometimes just need a little quiet time or alone time.

Make sure the conversation is two-way. If you’re asking your kids about their day, tell them about yours too. You don’t have to overshare, but they shouldn’t feel like they are on the hot seat during a conversation. Share a funny story that happened to you, something that the family pet did, or pass along a hello from grandma or another family member. Talking to your children with respect and showing that you are interested in them and also want to be open with them can help fuel your future conversations.

How to Play “Would You Rather”

“Would you Rather” is a game that pits two different options against each other and the person answering must choose one or the other. Usually, it’s a difficult choice where both options are fantastic and you wish you could have both, or both options are terrible and you really don’t want either.

You can take advantage of this list and turn it into a free printable so you have a long list. You can also copy and paste a few questions on small note cards and pick one to talk about each day over dinner.

This is also a game where you can record some of the answers and ask the kids a year later and see if their answers are still the same. It’s a blast to learn a little more about how their brains work and how they make decisions.

Other Fun Games to Play With Kids

Would You Rather is a fun game to play with kids because it gets the conversations started. Here are a few other conversational games that can be fun in the car or at the dinner table.

Name 10

Have someone come up with a category and then each player races to write down ten items that fit in that category. Whoever gets it first shares their list with the group and if everything fits in the category, they get to pick the next one. It’s a fun way to get your brains moving, plus it’s fun to debate why certain things fit into certain categories.

True or False

Invite people in the group to share two statements, one of them is true and the other is false. Everyone must guess which is which. This can be a good way to share things they’ve learned in school or things that they have experienced or done recently. This can be a fun way to get to know more about each other and have some giggles while doing it.

Only Questions

This exercise is kind of like playing Jeopardy where you have to answer each question with a question. It might seem like an easy exercise, but it gets tricky over time. It’s a good way to engage everyone at the dinner table.

20 Questions

Twenty Questions is a fun guessing game where one person thinks of a person, place, or thing. Everyone else takes turns asking yes or no questions about that thing to narrow down the options. If they cannot guess the correct answer within 20 questions, the person in the hot seat wins a point. There is also a handheld game that will generate options, or you can log onto the 20Q website and get some inspiration for clues.

What questions would you add to your would you rather game?

Let us know what you come up with for additional questions. This game can be extended for hours if you let the kids come up with their own questions too. It’s surprising how creative everyone can get.
