Do you like the game “Would You Rather?” It’s so much fun to see the inner workings of how your kids thinks! The game provides thoughtful entertainment when waiting. Then they just begin to love it to fill the void anytime!

Would You Rather Read My Blog or Pay Bills?

(Hahahaha… so glad I won!)

Sometimes the questions are so silly you can’t HELP but to get in on them. “Would you rather have cotton balls for hair or corks for teeth?” And other times they may be more serious, really picking the inner workings of your child’s personality. “Would you rather be rich or happy?”

I’ve been playing this game a lot lately with my almost seven year old and am really enjoying it. Sometimes though when I’m tired or my mind is on other things I get totally stumped to keep the game going. Do you ever feel like that? Well I’ve got you covered!
