Here are six riddles for kids where the answer for each of them is ‘treasure chest.’
The first five of them rhyme, with the words ‘treasure chest’ completing the rhyme of the fourth and fifth riddles.
The sixth one asks your children What Am I? To use that idea, read the clue on the first line to your children and ask them to guess the answer.
As the clue is that it holds things but it doesn’t have any hands, they might guess that it’s a plate, duct tape or a coat hanger.
If they don’t guess that a treasure chest is the answer, read them the second clue and ask them to guess again. Keep going until they either guess the correct answer or they run out of clues.
