How to play the Would you rather game
All you need for this game is a list of questions. Each question should require the players to choose between 2 options and to show their choice by moving to a designated side of the room.
All players begin by walking to the center of the room.
For example, if the question is “Would you rather wear a baseball cap or a visor?” you would designate one side of the room for visors and the other side for those who prefer baseball caps.
This can continue with a few more questions that are hand-crafted to help kids learn more about each other.
