Spice up family dinner conversation with Would You Rather for Kids! This kid-friendly version of the Would you rather… question game is a great way to get the kids talking, plus gives them a chance to use their imaginations!
Hi there! It’s Kelly from Typically Simple and I’m excited to be back sharing another fun printable idea! Family dinners have always been a huge part of my life. Every night as a kid, we’d all sit down for dinner together and talk about our days. Even when my brother and I would come home from college, we’d still all sit around the table and enjoy dinner together.
And now as a little family of three, we eat dinner at the table every night. Although the past few years have mostly been spent negotiating how many more bites or explaining that a bowl of ice cream is not a healthy choice for dinner.
But now that our little guy is more talkative about his day, I’m always looking for more ways to get him involved in the conversation that isn’t just asking him about what he did at school. This would you rather for kids is a great way to get the kids chatting!
Plus it’s super easy to put together with the exclusive Would You Rather for Kids printable!

Would You Rather for Kids Tips & Ideas
- Print on card stock or laminate to make the cards sturdier for little hands.
- Hole punch the cards in one corner and use a binder ring to create questions on the go – perfect for car trips or while waiting at appointments.
- Ask the kids “why” after they give an answer to help them expand on their ideas.
- Use the blank cards to create your own questions together as a family!
Would You Rather for kids is not only fun to play as a family, but also a great way for teachers to get their students talking and discussing their ideas in the classroom. Use the cards for classroom icebreakers, writing prompts, or just a fun 5 minute brain break activity!
