This Or That Games

As fun as these questions are, Kids can lose focus and get bored quickly – their attention spans are short, but you can always structure these questions to keep the game going for longer.

This or that for kids is always going to be more fun when turned into a game, so we’re going to recommend a few clever ways you can turn these questions into captivating games for 2 or more people.

Guessing Game

guessing game

If there are only two children, have them face each other with a piece of paper and a pen. Every time you ask a question, they must not only think of their own answer but also what they think the other player will choose.

They must write down their guess of the other person’s answer before sharing. If either guessed correctly, they get one point. Whoever has the most points at the end of the game is the winner!

Quick-Fire Rounds

Another way of adding an extra layer of competition is by letting the two kids ask each other the questions. The asker will write down what they think the answerer will say, and they get a point for every time they get it right. Once they get it wrong, they switch positions. This continues until all questions are answered.

Group Setting

If you have multiple people, you can split the group into two teams. Each team has ten seconds to agree on which is the superior choice, and if there is anyone on the fence by the 10-second mark the other team gets a point, and vice versa.

It doesn’t have to be competitive though – sometimes you can simply go around in a circle giving each person a turn to ask a question.

Each child must answer it, and give a detailed explanation as to why they made that choice. This is an excellent way to start conversations and get players to learn a little more about one another.

Whether you’re on a long road trip, waiting somewhere, or just stuck at home without much to do, this or that for kids is an excellent way to pass the time with your little ones.

Keeping children occupied doesn’t have to be as complicated as some people make out – sometimes it just takes a bit of extra quality time with friends, siblings, and parents to keep their minds racing.

We hope you and your littlies enjoy these this or that questions and find some fun and creative ways to use them. If you’re looking for more DIY family games and inspiration, why not check out a few more of our articles at A Subtle Revelry? We promise you won’t regret it!
