Bat Riddles For Kids
These winged creatures often scare people
If you touch one you are brave
They’re often found just hanging out
Upside down inside a cave
If you see one flying around
You’d better be careful at night
As some turn into vampires
And will give your neck a big bite
The fact this mammal has webbed wings
Makes it a one of a kind
And contrary to the saying
None of these creatures are blind
This is a unique type of mammal
As its webbed wings mean that it can fly
They can find their way using echoes
For flying in both caves and the sky
It’s black, furry and flies about
Try not to be scared if you can
It likes to hang out upside down
And Bruce Wayne is this type of man
What Am I?
I’m black but I’m not a marker pen
I’m a mammal but I’m not a whale
I can fly but I’m not a plane
I go before ‘man’ to make a superhero but I’m not a spider
I might be found in a cave but I’m not a stalagmite
As mentioned above, here are several ideas for costumes, toys and other prizes that could be used for bat-themed activities – just click on the images to get more information on Amazon:
