I have always been quite inquisitive. I love to ask questions. Not just to ask questions for the question’s sake, but I truly am intrigued and interested in hearing the answers.
To me, the answers often give insights to the individual answering the questions. These answers can show confidence or timidity, bravery or fear, sincerity or silliness.
In the last few years, I have enjoyed playing the Would You Rather Game. This is a fun game where the players answer hypothetical questions.
See why I like this game? LOL!
The questions can be…
Fun and silly offering a great time of friendship and giggles.
Conversation starters to learn more about others.
Critical thinking opportunities to keep our minds sharp.
Ways to keep busy for long car rides.
How To Play Would You Rather
According to wikihow.com on how to play this game, the guidelines and rules are “simple and can be played with anyone, anywhere. You need to have at least two players and a creative mind to come up with interesting scenarios and questions.” The folks at wikihow offer a good overview of how to play the game suggesting a variety of different ways to have the most fun with the group of individuals you are gathering with.
There are dozens and dozens of Would You Rather questions and books available online for kids, history, love, silly, serious, history and more. If interested, here is a Would You Rather Pinterest Pin Board for you to look through.
Out of all the fun question themes people have put together, guess what Would You Rather questions I didn’t find? I didn’t find any for crafters.
So, I decided I would put together my own collection of inquisitive questions.
Thanks to some dear friends (Tracy, Robin, and Christine) we came up with some fun questions that we had fun gathering together.
Would You Rather – Paper Crafters Edition
I think this would be a super fun icebreaker for crafters who get together either in-person, online or as a way to begin a crafting retreat.
- The aim of this version is to have fun and share lots of giggles.
- Each player answering the question must choose an option. No player can say “both” or “neither”.
- Explain the reasons behind your decisons OR would you rather not share why you feel that way? See what I just did right there? LOL
- But really, do share your decisions, because part of the fun comes in to play when we can learn and understand different points of view.
- If another player disagrees…have fun trying to convice each other why your answeris better.
These questions are probably not as extremely thought-provoking as some of the other question themes you might come across, but they are intended to create conversations and quite possibly offer insights into a way of thinking that you may not have thought of before.

What a fun post! Thank you 🙂
I picked a couple of questions to answer:
1. Craft alone – I’m usually getting into a deep state of focus
2. Create listening to *uplifting* music
3. Glitter in reasonable amounts
4. Snack after you finish your crafting session
5. Markers OR Colored pencils? No preference
6. Purchase a Cricut – it’s been gathering dust lately though
7. Make colorful cards
8. Simon OR Tim? I have no idea what you’re even talking about. My answer is Michael’s 😉
9. Chocolate while crafting – Chocolate is *always* the answer!
10. Definitely physical picture/paper scrapbooking! You may do things digitally, but please don’t call them scrapbook.
11. No alcohol while creating – cause knives and stuff.
12. Michaels OR JoAnn’s? Oh HERE’s where you hid Michael’s!
13. USA crafting styles OR UK crafting styles? Im Swiss, and I’ll stay neutral here.

Thank you for your answers, Tamara. So fun! I enjoyed reading them. Question 8: Tim Holtz and Simon Hurley are two known professional crafters in the stamping community. They have huge followings and I thought it would be fun to see who others would rather create with….I may need to update that question. Again, thank you for playing.
I am a chocolate/scissors/Michaels/snacking/crafting with my kiddos/bright colored cards person!! Love this Would you rather!

I would rather have someone show me how to do the Craft then let me be by myself to Craft on my own because with people around I get distracted and don’t finish what I start. Although homeschooling my son we have Arts & Crafts, and I can’t just walk away so I am trying to get better at Crafting with others.
