Anchor Riddles For Kids

If you’re getting close to land
And you need your ship to stop
You’ll take down all your sails
And this item you will drop


A ship drops this to stay still
Even if the water’s calm
It is also a tattoo
You can see on Popeye’s arm


When you’re coming to a stop
This is what you will
Drop on to the sea bed
To make your ship stay still

You drop me when you want to stop and lift me up when you want to go.
