Airplane Riddles

We’re continuing our series of transport riddles for kids today with nine which all have an airplane as their answer.

The first eight of them are all rhyming riddles, with the word ‘airplane’ completing the rhyme of the eighth one.

The final idea is a What Am I riddle. To use that one, read the clue that’s on the first line to your kids and ask them to guess what it is that you’re describing.

As it’s something with a nose but which isn’t a dog, they’ll probably guess that it’s another kind of animal or a person. If they don’t guess that the answer is an airplane, read them the second clue and ask them to take another guess.

Keep doing this until they either guess correctly or they run out of clues.
