Are you looking for yes and no questions kids love answering? You’ve come to the right spot.

Here at Little Learning Corner, my goal is to keep learning fun for young children. These closed questions are a starting point for fun language skills.


Types of Questions for Kids

These yes or no questions kids love to answer are perfect for getting to know you, starting classroom conversations, starting family conversations, and as a Question of the Day.  

The simple questions also make great journal prompts for kids who need to build their written expression skills.

The next time your kids walk into the room, or sit down at the dinner table, ask them a one of these close-ended questions, and see what’s the first thing they respond with; yes or no.

You’ll find some of these good questions are funny, some are factual, and some are thought provoking.

To help you find the questions quickly, I have broken them down into the following types of questions:

  • Funny Questions
  • Are Questions
  • Is and If Questions
  • Have You Questions
  • Do You Questions
  • Can You Questions
  • Would You Ever Questions

Funny Yes or No Questions for Kids

One of the reasons kids love giving one-word responses is because they are afraid of giving wrong answers.

Can You Questions

You will quickly discover “can you” questions are yes or no questions kid love answering, because they love sharing what they can do.

Once the young children give you an answer, you can then proceed with open-ended questions.

For example, after they answer “can you ride a bike?”, you can build upon their language skills by asking “where did you learn how to ride a bike?”

  • Can you tie your shoes?
  • Can you ride a bike?
  • Can you eat soup with a fork?
  • Can you see in the dark?
