I think battleship game is always a good way of practising questions. Iīm sure you will find some here.

You can ask your students what they usually do at the weekend and write it on the board. E.g. :  go to the swimming pool, visit my grandmother etc. - write letīs say 10 examples. Then one pupil chooses only one activity(whichever s/he wants)  but tells nobody which one. The others have to find the activity by using DO : Do you usually go to the swimming pool ? The pupil who guesses the right answer chooses  the next activity. It is usually fun :-)

You can play īThe Coffeepot ī. It īs an oral game to practice questions and short answers. I canīt remember where or who taught me but it works. 
A student choose a verb (ie. wash my face) and the class has to guess it asking: "Do you coffeepot in the morning? When do you coffeepot? Do you coffeepot everyday? Do you coffeepot at home/at school? and so on, until the class using the information guess the word. It īs funny and students practice a lot.
I hope it helps you.
