Today’s collection is no exception as the answer to all of these is a microwave, meaning they can also be used with our other appliance riddles.
The first five of these are rhyming riddles, while the sixth asks your children What Am I?
To use that sixth idea, read the clue that’s on the first line to your kids and have them guess the answer. As the clue is that it’s something that has a door but isn’t a cupboard, they might guess that it’s a car, a bedroom or an advent calendar.
If they don’t guess that a microwave is the answer, read them the second clue and have them take another guess. Keep doing this until they either guess correctly that the answer is a microwave or they run out of clues.
Microwave Riddles For Kids
This is something in the kitchen
Which can cook food on demand
What it’s called sounds similar to
A small movement of a hand
When you’re feeling hungry
And you need something to eat
If your food has gone cold
You can use this to reheat
I rotate but I’m not the Earth
As it orbits round the sun
Instead I’m used to heat up food
And I beep when I am done
I am used for cooking food
But not for it to be fried
I am a type of oven
But I don’t get hot inside
If you get home late from practice
This appliance is a winner
As instead of having cold food
This thing can reheat your dinner
What Am I?
I have a door but I’m not a cupboard
I have buttons but I’m not an elevator
I beep but I’m not a car
I’m found in your kitchen but I’m not a dishwasher
I can cook things but I’m not a saucepan
