Towel Riddles

For the last few weeks we’ve been publishing many different riddles where the answers are all household items and more specifically things that you would find in a bathroom.

We’re bringing that series to an end for now with today’s set of riddles for children which all have ‘towel’ as their answer.

The first three of these are rhyming riddles, the fourth is a one-liner and the fifth asks What Am I?

To use that fifth idea, have your kids read the first line and attempt to guess what’s being described. If they’re incorrect, have them move on to the second clue and take another guess.

They should keep going until they either work out that the answer is towel or they run out of clues.

Towel Riddles For Kids

You always make me get wet
But not because you make me cry
It is because my purpose
Is to ensure that you get dry

~

You always bring me to the beach
So you don’t have to lay on the sand
Then once you’ve been in the water
With drying you, I help lend a hand

~

You use this every day
Many times I would bet
The more that you get dry
The more that it gets wet

~

I can be used to dry any tears that you cry

~

What Am I?

I’m rectangular but I’m not a kitchen table
I’m usually made of cotton but I’m not a T-shirt
I absorb water but I’m not a sponge
I’m sometimes used at a beach but I’m not a bucket
I’m found in a bathroom but I’m not a toothbrush

Soap Riddles

We’re currently publishing a series of riddles that are all items you can find around the house, with all the recent ones being items that you can find in your bathroom.

That series continues today with several riddles for kids where the answer is ‘soap.’

The first three of these rhyme, with the fourth asking What Am I? Here’s how to use that final idea:

Read the first line of it to your children and ask them to guess what they think it is that you’re describing. If they’re not correct, read them the second clue and ask them to guess again.

Keep doing this until they either realize that the answer is soap or they run out of clues.

5 Soap Riddles For Kids

Soap Riddles For Kids

If your hands get really messy
And dirt is all that can be seen
Then use some of this with water
To help make sure your hands get clean

~

This can create a lot of bubbles
And comes as a liquid or a bar
If you never use any of this
Then people will smell you from afar

~

When I am mixed with water
Then I can perform magic
As I make dirt disappear
Leaving things clean is my trick

~

I get used many times a day
Mixed with plenty of water
Each time a bar of me is used
I get a little shorter

~

What Am I?

I’m sometimes a bar but I’m not made of gold
I’m sometimes a liquid but I’m not something you drink
I can create bubbles but I’m not a can of soda that’s been shaken
I help you to get clean but I’m not a shower
I’m found by a sink but I’m not a faucet

The first three of these rhyme, while the fourth is a What Am I? riddle. To use that final idea, read the first line to your kids and get them to guess the answer.

Mirror Riddles For Kids

This item can be used
To see what is right there
An evil queen used hers
To find out who’s most fair

~

There’s two of these on the sides of cars
And two on the side of a truck
If you accidentally break one
You’ll have seven years bad luck

~

It’s sometimes round and it’s sometimes tall
It reflects the fairest of them all

~

They’re sometimes on a wall
And sometimes on a shelf
And when you look at one
You always see yourself

~

When you look at this
You see perfection
Because what you see
Is your reflection

~

It would be correct to say this does reflect

~

When you see me, you also see you

What Am I?

I’m found on a wall but I’m not paint
I’m found on the inside and outside of a car but I’m not a light
I’m found in a hairdresser’s but I’m not a pair of scissors
I appear in Sleeping Beauty but I’m not an apple
I reflect things but I’m not a puddle
