Why I Love Trivia Games
There are so many reasons why I love trivia games.
Trivia is a way to keep the kids engaged in family activities. They have so many things pulling at them, and this is one thing that sparks their interest every single time. They love to prove that they are the smartest and can answer the fastest. It allows us to have fun as a family at a moment’s notice.
Trivia is also a great way to learn about new things. Every time I introduce a new trivia topic, I find the kids researching on their own the topic so they can be the trivia champion.
I also love trivia night/games for social interaction. It is the perfect way to learn to communicate, work together, and talk with others.
Lastly, playing trivia is fun! Everyone is always laughing and having a great time. It never fails that we may hear an answer or two that makes us laugh hysterically that leaves us talking about it for days.
