Confession time – we are major Eurovision Song Contest fans in our house! Before moving house a gazillion times, we used to have a projector and big screen instead of a TV, and we would invite all our friends over for a big Eurovision viewing party. Usually we’d do a quiz as a warm up to get the evening started, with small prizes for the winners. These days, it’s usually a bit of a quieter family affair, with popcorn and a glass of wine (or some lemonade for the kids), and we make our own scorecards to rate the acts as they perform. Since it’s not a school night, we let the boys stay up to watch it if they like. The little one usually falls asleep half way through it, but Oskar last year made it all the way to the end. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I found some of my old quiz files and I’ve updated them and edited them together in to a new quiz. There are two rounds with ten questions each, one round about Europe (a bit of a tense topic at the moment, I realise) and one round about Eurovision. If you fancy hosting your own Eurovision party this year, feel free to download the quiz for your personal use.
