Write your own Christmas quiz!


Merry Quizmas!

Why not challenge your friends and family over the holidays by creating your own Christmas quiz? Writing your own questions and reading them out to people is a great way to practice your literacy skills and have fun at the same time.

Steps to help you get started:

  1. Write a list of categories for each round of your quiz. They could be based on general themes such as books and music, your local area, or you could even have a picture round or ask people to submit the best Christmas joke.
  2. Write a few questions based on the categories you’ve chosen. If you want your quiz to be a short and snappy one, you can write two or three questions for each, but if you’d like your quiz to last an hour or so, then 5-10 questions per theme is ideal.
  3. Make a note of the answers, so you can mark people’s responses and choose a winner. (Remember to hide it from the people taking part in your quiz!)

Additional activities:

  • Design your own answer sheet for people to complete whilst you’re quizzing them
  • Source a prize for the winner. You could also find a smaller prize for last place
  • Help someone else write their own quiz, now you’re an expert!
