Requirements:
– Minimum of 2 players


Skills trained:
– Vocabulary
– Fast thinking

How to play

One player is asking questions. It should be closed-ended questions as the target is to make your opponent answer with yes or no.

Examples:
Do you like cats?
Are you having siblings?

Or combine questions to set a trap:
1. What do you usually eat for breakfast?
2. Do you like eggs for breakfast?

A player is losing a round when he answers with yes or no.

It might be good to set a limit for the number of questions to be asked. This number should be based on the age of the kids playing the game. Try low and increase if the game is too easy.

If you have more than 2 kids playing the game you could count the number of questions it took to get a yes or no to determine a winner. Example: The kid who answered the most questions without yes or no wins.

Variations

Play the game in another language your kid is learning to help with improving grammar and vocabulary. Naturally the questions should be adjusted to the skill level in that language.

Have fun playing the game – and don´t forget: Play with your kids!
