You’ve found our archive of Children’s Trivia Questions (complete with answers) that we tweeted during February 2013.

Be aware that some of the trivia questions on this page are DATE SENSITIVE so please check each question to ensure that it is still relevant. Some of the questions are multiple-choice which is – of course – optional depending on the degree of difficulty you’re after. Provide the multiple choice answers if you want to make an easy quiz … remove them for a more challenging quiz.
