Ant Riddles

Here are four riddles for kids where the answer is an ant – great for using with our other nature and insect riddles.

The first three of these are rhyming riddles, while the fourth is a What Am I riddle.

To use that final idea, read the clue that’s on the first line to your kids and have them take a guess at what they think the answer might be. As the clue is that it’s something that helps create a hill but which isn’t a mole, they might guess that it’s a digger.

If they don’t guess that an ant is the answer, read them the second clue and have them guess again now that they have some extra information. Keep going until they either guess that an ant is the correct answer or they run out of clues.

With antennae on its head
It might be found in a hill
And can be fire or red

And it builds tunnels that connect
