Television Riddles

We’re continuing with our series of riddles for kids about household items with another item that you might find in a living room – a television.

The first three of these are rhyming riddles (with the word ‘television’ completing the rhyme of the third), while the fourth is a one line riddle that also has an internal rhyme.

The fifth and final one of these is a What Am I riddle. To use that one, read the clue that’s on the first line to your children and ask them to guess what they think the answer might be. As the clue is that it’s something that has a plug but which isn’t a sink, they might guess that it’s a bathtub, vacuum cleaner or phone charger.

If they don’t guess that the answer is a television, read them the second clue and have them take another guess. Keep doing this until they either guess that a television is the correct answer or they run out of clues.

If you walk in a living room
You might see a coffee table
You will also see this item
You can turn on and watch cable

I am something in your house
In the living room I am seen
When you sit on the sofa
You can watch things on my widescreen

If there is a show you love
And binge watching is your mission
Just relax on your sofa
And turn on the _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

I am something with a screen on which your shows can be seen

I have a remote control but I’m not a drone

Vacuum Cleaner Riddles

Our series of household item riddles continues today with five where the answer is a vacuum cleaner.

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

To use that final idea, read the first line of it to your kids and have them guess what they think the answer might be. As the clue is that it sometimes has a bag but isn’t someone at the mall, they might guess that it’s Santa, a golfer or a traveler.

If they don’t guess that a vacuum cleaner is the answer, read them the clue on the second line and have them take another guess. Keep doing this until they either guess the correct answer or they run out of clues.

Vacuum Cleaner Riddles For Kids

This is a household appliance
But it doesn’t clean your shirt
You push it all over the floor
And it sucks up all the dirt

~

If you want to have a clean home
This appliance is a must
Because it can clean all your floors
As it sucks up dirt and dust

~

I am something that cleans floors
Although I am not a broom
I’m able to suck up dirt
To clean carpets in each room

~

This often has two wheels
But it’s not a bike you ride
Plug it in and push it round
And it cleans your floors inside

~

What Am I?

I sometimes have a bag but I’m not someone at the mall
I usually have two wheels but I’m not a bicycle
I have a plug but I’m not a bathtub
I clean but I’m not a janitor
I suck but I’m not a straw

Oven Riddles

We’re continuing with our series of household item riddles today with five where the answer is an oven.

These ideas are therefore also perfect for using with our appliance and kitchen riddles.

The first four of them are rhyming riddles, while the fifth asks your kids What Am I?

To use that final idea, read the clue that’s on the first line to your children and have them take a guess at the answer. As the clue is that it’s something that gets hot but doesn’t sweat, they might guess that it’s a fire, a BBQ, a sauna or a toaster.

If they don’t guess that an oven is the answer, read them the second clue and have them guess again. Keep going until they either answer correctly or they run out of clues.

When you need to cook some food
This appliance might be chosen
As it can bake some cookies
Or a pizza which is frozen

This item in your kitchen
Cooks things but it’s not for toast
It is gas or electric
And can bake, broil and roast

~

I am a kitchen appliance
But I am not used to make toast
In November at Thanksgiving
Your large turkey is what I roast

~

If you are feeling hungry
And there’s food you need to make
Use this to roast a chicken
Or some cookies it can bake

~

What Am I?

I get hot but I never sweat
I cook things but I’m not a chef
I have a door but you don’t go through me
I can sometimes clean myself but I’m not a person
I can be gas or electric but I’m not a car

Toaster Riddles

Our series of riddles for kids about household items continues today with five where the answer is a toaster.

These can also therefore be used with our other riddles about appliances and things you can specifically find in a kitchen.

The first four of these are rhyming riddles, with the word ‘toaster’ completing the rhyme of the fourth one.

The fifth and final riddle asks your kids the question What Am I? To use that riddle, read your children the clue listed on the first line and ask them to try to guess the answer.

The clue is that it’s something in their house but which isn’t a TV. As the clue is quite vague, they might guess that it’s a bed, a toothbrush, a sofa or one of many other possible objects.

If they don’t get lucky and guess that a toaster is the answer with their first guess, read them the second clue and ask them to take another guess. Keep going until they either realize that the correct answer is a toaster or they run out of clues.

This small kitchen appliance
Gets pushed down and then it starts
It’s used for slices of bread
Or for heating up Pop-Tarts

This will help ensure you’re fed

Which can cook slices of bread

But I am not your bed
As I’m in your kitchen
I’m used to cook your bread

But it’s not a drinks coaster
You put in slices of bread
And push down – it’s a _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Refrigerator Riddles

We’re continuing with our series of riddles about items found around the house today with five where the answer is a refrigerator. These therefore also work well with all of our other kitchen and appliance riddles.

The first four of them are rhyming riddles, with the fifth asking your kids What Am I?

To use the What Am I riddle, read the clue that’s on the first line to your children and have them try to guess what the answer is. The clue is that it’s something that has shelves but which isn’t a bookcase, so they might guess that it’s a grocery store, a cupboard or a garage.

If they don’t guess that a refrigerator is the answer, read them the second clue and have them take another guess taking into account this extra information. Keep doing this until they either guess the correct answer or they run out of clues.

This is something in your kitchen
Meat, milk and yogurt it does hold
The reason you put them in this
Is because it helps keep them cold

Then this is what you will keep filled
Because for them to be safe to eat
You need this to help keep them chilled

If your height’s 3 feet, this is taller
It has different food stored inside
It’s not room temperature but cooler

But it’s not an air conditioner unit

And it often has meat, cheese and milk in it

I have a door but I’m not a cupboard
