Organising a family quiz night is a great way to have fun and learn new things with your kids while spending time at home! You can easily create your own family pub quiz, or use one of the many online resources. We have also created our own London Family Quiz that you can test out below.

Tips to create your own family quiz
- Prepare prepare prepare! Create questions of varying difficulty for the different knowledge levels of the family. For every 10 questions, have 3 easy, 3 difficult and 4 somewhere in between.
- Have fun! While you might have some very competitive family members, make sure that having fun is the name of the game. Then your kids will come back for more!
- Make it educational in a sneaky way! Try to link some of the topics to areas that your kids are interested in or that they are learning about in school!
- Hand out pencils and rubbers! The kids should be in charge of writing the answers, and let them get the chance to correct their spellings if needed!
- We all make mistakes. If one of your answers are incorrect, admit to it and give all teams full points for that answer.
- Update the scoring each round. Make sure everyone are up to date on where they stand.
- Take a break! Take a short break halfway through your question rounds
- This is a great opportunity to teach your kids to win or lose graciously! Make sure to go forward as a good example 😉

There are lots of quizzes available for kids out there. We really like the CBBC since it’s really interactive and educational, as well as it’s not full of ads making it distracting and hard for kids to navigate the webpages.
- CBBC: A great collection of interactive and entertaining quizzes for kids ranging from sports and music to animals and the news. Definitely a favourite!
