Sand Riddles

Here are eight riddles for kids where sand is the answer. These ideas are therefore perfect for using with our other beach and nature riddles.

The first six of these are rhyming riddles, with the word ‘sand’ completing the rhyme of the sixth. The seventh is a one line riddle, while the eighth and final riddle asks your children the question What Am I?

To use that idea, read the first line to your children and have them take a guess at the answer. As the clue is that it’s something that’s small but which isn’t a hamster, they might guess that it’s a coin, an eraser or a grape.

If they don’t guess that the answer is sand, read them the clue that’s on the second line and ask them to take another guess. Keep doing this until they either guess that sand is the answer or they run out of clues.
