Trivia is a part of everyday life in our house. It’s been a long-running joke that my talent is retaining useless knowledge. It’s safe to say that I’m a bit of a trivia junkie. My kiddos appear to be following suit and I can’t say I’m disappointed. From animal facts to world records and everything in between, my kids love to those quirky tidbits. I can’t wait until they’re ready for Trivial Pursuit!
Where Can I Find Trivia?
In honor of this very sacred day, I’m throwing out a few great trivia resources to give you a leg up at your next game night:
- Speaking of “leg up” (meaning a boost or position of advantage) check out Grammarist for more on this idiom!
- If you’re looking for animal trivia try this neat quiz for kids to test their knowledge on ScienceKids and the answers are at the bottom of the page.
- Movie buffs might love this Huffington Post piece with 51 interesting little tidbits.
- We are NFL junkies (Go Texans and Seahawks!) so while we’re pretty up on our NFL trivia, some of the other sports fall by the wayside. This is one place we go to pick up the slack…don’t worry, The Sports Truth covers the NFL as well!
