Best Would You Rather Questions for Kids in Preschool

Would You Rather is a wonderful game for engaging young children and teaching them to think and reason. Play it at home, in class, while driving, or prepping dinner.

It’s fun for all ages, including adults, so be sure to make the questions age-appropriate if you’re playing it with small children.

To play the game, give children a choice between two options and ask them to justify their choice with reasons.

The options can be things you’d rather be, rather have, rather do, etc. 

This game teaches critical thinking skills, an important part of a child’s cognitive development in early childhood.

It also builds vocabulary, decision-making skills and listening skills.

Would You Rather is a fun way to get kids used to answering open-ended questions. It gives kids a chance to think about the choices and find words to explain the option they prefer. 

At first, it will be very difficult for a young preschooler to put into words why they’ve made a certain choice, but with time and maturity, they will learn to organize their thoughts and ‘argue’ their reasoning.

This game is also fun for engaging in a friendly debate and learning to listen to others’ viewpoints. Teach kids that it’s ok to change your mind as you think things through.

Some of these are silly and funny Would You Rather questions for kids, others are more serious.
