Have you ever played “Would You Rather?” It’s a very simple game where you’re presented with a choice between two things and you have to pick one. Sometimes they’re simple or serious, but often they’re silly! This is a great way to get to know someone, but it’s also a fantastic way to practice communication skills! This or that questions for kids are such a perfect way to engage with your children in a way that’s lighthearted and fun.
It can be hard to come up with great would you rather questions for your kids. So, I’ve rounded up 100 great questions for you! Some of them are serious, some are silly. Some are hard to choose between, and some they’ll know right away! This or that questions work on so many great communication skills, but they’ll also help you feel connected to your kids. It’s a win-win!
You can bust these out at the dinner table, on your next car ride, or on the walk home from school. Ask a couple before bed, or shout one out the car door when you drop them off in the morning. For older kids, you can even ask them via text!
