How to Play Would You Rather with Kids

The key to playing Would You Rather with kids is to make the options silly and imaginative so they stay engaged. It’s also helpful to set some ground rules. Make sure everyone understands that there are no right or wrong answers and that it’s all just for fun. We recommend starting with some easy questions to get the ball rolling, like “Would you rather eat pizza or ice cream for the rest of your life?” Then gradually ramp up the difficulty level. Before you know it, you’ll be knee-deep in debates about whether it’s better to have super strength or the ability to fly.
