In anticipation of a veeeery long family car ride, I created this set of conversation cards … would you rather questions for kids.
Have you ever played “Would you rather?”
I love that game. Back in our single days, my sister and I took a few cross country road trips, and we played Would You Rather to pass the time.
- Would you rather drive a beautiful, sleek sports car that was unreliable OR an ugly, dented, rust-covered beater that never broke down?
- Would you rather never eat your favorite five foods again or ONLY eat your favorite five foods for the rest of your life?
- Would you rather communicate only with an Etch-a-Sketch or a Lite Brite?
Seriously, these are so fun.
Those sister road trips are a thing of the past, but as a mom of six I’ve found that Would You Rather questions have come in handy countless times. Not only are they useful for parents, but they’re also a sanity saver for teachers.
Use Would You Rather questions …
- To get to know your students in the first weeks of school
- To keep your learners’ attention during transition times
- To help students become comfortable with their small group members
- As writing prompts to build critical thinking skills
- To pass the time on long car rides
- As conversation starters at the dinner table
- To provide entertainment for a youth group, 4-H or scouting group, etc.
I made a set of 100 cards just like these. Then I printed them on cardstock, cut them apart, and punched a hole in the upper left corner. I put them together with a metal ring.
But I ran into a problem …
I ran out of questions! It’s amazing how quickly we breezed through 100 questions. You’re welcome to download the cards or list of 100 questions below. BUT … if you want to make sure you have enough questions for any setting, check out my printable list of Would You Rather questions in my online shop.
This set is designed for kids of all ages.
Unlike many Would You Rather questions that you can find online, mine are safe and engaging for everyone. The choices aren’t extreme, scary, gross or (ew) dirty.

My kids absolutely love playing Would You Rather! We play it almost every night at bath time and I’m always surprised by their creativity. It’s such a great way to see what’s going on in heads.
Thank you so much. These are amazing
Dear Anna G,
Do you have any more for ten year olds? I think there a little young.
Thanks for the idea though. I will show it to my friends.
I do have to disagree that these are too young for ten year olds. I’ve used them with all age levels. I just created a larger set for my shop with a total of 530 questions, and they’re on sale for a few days. https://www.themeasuredmom.com/product/would-you-rather-questions-for-all-ages/
Thank you! I used these with my 22 Kindergarten through 5th library classes. Here’s the post I put on my blog with a link to your site. https://www.mylesmediacenter.com/single-post/2018/02/06/Would-You-Rather
Thanks so much for sharing the link, Jean! My answer would be M & M’s every time. 🙂
I like this idea! Thank you ??. I’ve made them into cootie catchers. 🙂
Still Jen.. making them into cootie catchers also helps with learning to spell, I’ve doodled animals (but you could also use some stickers) and stuck them on the inside flaps, so, depending on their age, the child might need to spell words from, ‘cat’, or ‘dog’ to ‘rabbit’ and ‘dinosaur’. ?
.. Or you could just do colours :).
Thanks for the creative ideas, Jen!
What a fun idea! I can’t wait to use these on our upcoming road trip!!
I hope you have fun with them, Kate!

I used google chrome and that worked, thank you very much for sharing
These are great. We have a 6 hour trip to make in July and I’ve been looking for fun things to do with my 4 year old son. I can’t wait to use these. Thank you for sharing this!
Have fun with them, Melissa! We like to do these in the last hour of a long trip. 🙂
I like this website!
Thank you, Ellen!
I’m a student going on a long field trip, i was looking for ‘would you rather’ questions and i came across this. It was really helpful, thank you very much!
You’re very welcome, Eva!
I love would you rathers
I love this idea! We travel 15 hours each summer (twice) and would LOVE to use the cards. However, I can not get them to open, I was wondering if maybe you could email them to me?
Hi Liz! Try one of these tips. 99% of the time, one of them works.
My kids will get such a kick out of these!! Thank you!
You’re very welcome Bethany!
These are awesome. They bring my family together
I’m so glad to hear it, Melisa! We like these too!
Thank you so much! My kids in church love these!
I’m so glad to hear that, Melissa!
Brandy @ Our Thrifty Home
These are wonderful. Thank you!
I have a reluctant reader and I think this may help a bit. He can read these to his sister and brother. Engaging!
I think that using these for a reluctant reader is a brilliant idea!
I’m always telling my oldest to be quiet–she won’t know what to think when I break out these cards on vacation and start asking her to talk, talk, talk. Thanks for helping me dread the long car ride a little less 🙂
You’re welcome, Renee — we really enjoy these! They’re such a great distraction during that last leg when no one wants to be in the car anymore. 🙂
How generous of you to post these for free! Thanks so much! We’re just about to go on a dreaded (by my daughter) road trip, so this should make things much more fun! =)
You’re very welcome, Sarah! For us these worked great during the last hour or so when everyone had just had enough sitting in the van. They were a fun distraction!
Thank you so much!
You’re very welcome, Desdi!
Lovely! Printing for our mega trip this year too — some of your questions are super!
Thanks, Jacquie! We used these on the last hour of a trip when no one knew what else to do. It was perfect!
thank you so much my grandkids are getting ready to go on a trip and this is great thank you so much
You’re welcome, Nancy!
Thank you for this fun, free printable! I am a graduate student who will be using these with a 1st grade student I am tutoring.
You’re very welcome, Michelle!
Thank you so much for this. Great to use for our 2nd language students to engage in collaborative conversation.
I love that idea, Noreen – have fun!
My kids love to play would you rather in the car, they use rrrather.com on their phone and ask questions for the site. We then announce what the stats are from the website; it’s fun to try to guess what percentage of people voted for each option, practically as fun as answering the questions.
Thank you, Alex – I’d never seen that site. I had to pull myself away from it now so I wouldn’t get sucked in during my work time ;). I love playing Would You Rather!
I love these and I sub at the local elementary. I will be using these for those “we only have 5 minutes before we have to leave for music/health, etc.” times when you just want a little something to fill the time. Thank you!
Great idea! I think they’re perfect for transition times. Hopefully they’ll interest your class enough that it will distract them from misbehavior. 🙂 Thanks for reading!
Thanks so much for creating and sharing these! I can’t wait to use them next year in my preschool classroom as conversation starters at snacktime. Thank you for all of the wonderful resources you share!
I’m glad you found these, Jill! If you use them in your classroom I’d love to hear back from you about how your students do with them!
Thank you, Becky!
I am pinning this right now. I think this would be perfect for keeping the family entertained and happy on a long car trip this summer.
Thank you for stopping by the Thoughtful Spot Weekly Blog Hop this week. We hope to see you drop by our neck of the woods next week!
Dianna @ The Kennedy Adventures
What a fun resource! I’m printing these out and recording the kids’ responses on video!
Thanks for linking up with The Thoughtful Spot!
What a great idea, to video their responses!
Ooh, my daughter will love those! Thank you so much!
You’re welcome, Natalie!
I love this game! We played it a few years ago with my daughter (10 at the time) and it was so fun! Thanks for making a little kids’ version.
You’re welcome, Shannen! I love these because there is really no end to things to what we could come up with.
Thanks ? This really helped so my kids won’t bug me in the car! Thx so much!
You’re very welcome, Madeline!
hi the kids will LOVE these
I love this
Thank you for putting this together! I will be sending people to your website for these when I mention them in a workshop on critical thinking this summer at I Teach K! 🙂
Oh, wonderful! Thanks so much, Heidi!
These are really cute — thank you!
You’re welcome, Mary – hope you get a chance to use them!
Your very nice do you by any chance have more than those 15 cards you made
I love these questions, but is there something specific with 13 years old in mind?
No, Nadine, but they work great for ALL ages – my husband and I enjoy them, too!
I am thinking these will be wonderful writing prompts! We are working on a topic sentence and three supporting details. The kids will be able to pull their prompt out of a container. Should be fun. Thanks.
Do you have to print them? If so I can’t use them because I don’t have a printer.I wish you could just read them on the Internet!
You can just open them up and read them without printing.
These are so CUTE! I am wanting to print these for kids but I cannot get the link to open or print.
Try one of these tips. One usually works! https://www.themeasuredmom.com/how-to-download-free-files/
I like that too Mary good minds think alike
