Table Riddles

Table RiddlesHere are seven riddles for kids where a table is the answer for each of them. These ideas are therefore great for using with all of our other household item and furniture riddles.

The first six of these riddles rhyme, with the word ‘table’ completing the rhyme of the sixth.

The seventh of these is a What Am I riddle. To use that one, read the first line to your children and have them take a guess at what they think the clue might be referring to. As the clue is that it’s something that has four legs but isn’t a camel, they might guess that it’s a cat, dog or a chair.

If they don’t guess that the answer is a table, read them the second clue and ask them to take another guess. Keep going until they either work out that a table is the correct answer or they run out of clues.
