For the trivia question slips, I recommend you print each page on a different color. Simply put in 5 different colored papers into your printer, then print! Then, you can let everyone know the 5 unique categories and what color each category is. Have one person draw a question and let everyone else try to guess the answer! The first to guess correctly gets to pick the next trivia question.

Most questions are easy for children of all ages but there are a few trickier questions in the mix for parents to join in on the fun!
