Quarantine Quiz- questions and answers!
Updated: Apr 4, 2020
The world is such a innovative place right now! People are working from home, video calling, doing meetings via the internet (I think it is called zooming?!), amazing teachers and coaches are delivering their classes for us all to join in with online, we are finding new ways of connecting with our families and even having parties with DJs- in our living rooms!
Who'd have thought it!
I am not down playing the seriousness of this situation the world is in right now, at all, and I know we have a long road ahead of us but I do think it is wonderful how people are coming up with their own wonderful ways of making the best out of a bad situation.
The one thing that the world and his wife seem to be doing at the moment is quizzes! And I can see why- they are so much fun! They are also really easily to get the whole family involved in, with FaceTime, WhatsApp video calling and more than likely a whole host of other options that are out there!
I have come up with 50 easy general knowledge questions and answers that you can use to host a quiz night for your family!
It is crazy how much I looked forward to and enjoyed our family quiz night the other night! I even put some make up on and did my hair- I KNOW! Unheard of in these times! I got some nibbles and drinks in on the weekly shop (time your quiz right so you can get some essential quizzing nibbles and drinks too!). Or of course you can have a PJ and cup of tea style quiz too- what ever floats your Quarantine boat!
For my family quiz night I made a Facebook chat group on messenger- added my family and then video called the group- everyone turned on their cameras and it was a multi video call.
We picked team names to make it more fun. You could take it in turns to host and then keep adding the scores to together each week to see who are the ultimate winners at the end of Quarantine!
So here goes- if you want to host your own family Quiz night here are 50 easy general knowledge questions that you can use!
