Throughout our daily lives, we’re fed all the things that we need or simply want to know. With the modern age of technology granting us access to mobile smart phones, computers, and the infinite knowledge on the internet, many of us don’t really find it necessary to think anymore. After all – if you can Google it, do you really need to try to decode it yourself?
Trivia questions provide an excellent way to test kids’ knowledge while having fun. Our trivia questions for kids work for all ages, including teens. We have Bible, Disney, food, and sports trivia questions. The questions are listed first, with the answers following. Your child can test their own knowledge in each area and then check the answers. Some questions require a short answer, some are true and false, and some multiple choice. This provides not only knowledge in each area, but increases a child’s test taking skills, and ability. Use these questions in the classroom, in Bible class, at camp – anywhere kids gather for fun and learning.
You may believe you are smart enough not to be tricked. However, trick questions can stump anyone. Common sense and experience will not help you answer these tricky questions. Even though some of the answers are logical or rely on common sense, your first thought is quite often incorrect. Some trick questions are funny, some are a play on words, and some involve looking at things differently. Try your hand at answering all of our trick questions and share them with friends.

Therefore, we keep testing ourselves and hoping we get better at solving them.
