Treasure Chest Riddles

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.

These can be used with all of our other pirate-themed riddles to create fun birthday party games for your children or as part of a pirate scavenger hunt.

Treasure Chest Riddles For Kids

This item contains shiny things
You’ll have to wait to find out what
It’s what you’ll end up digging up
Once you’ve found the X that marks the spot


Its contents are really valuable
So hopefully there are no locks
That you will have to break through
Once you dig up this buried box


You’ll need two people to lift this
Because of its extreme weight
Why is this wooden item heavy?
It’s filled with pieces of eight


If you were to find this buried
It would be a pleasure fest
It’s marked on a map by an X
Which means it’s a _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _    _ _ _ _ _


Of all the things you might find buried
This item is the best
Because what’s inside will make you rich
It is a _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _      _ _ _ _ _


What Am I?

I hold things but I don’t have any hands
I’m often buried but I’m not a coffin

I usually belong to a pirate but I’m not a parrot
I contain gold but I’m not a leprechaun’s pot

If you come across a treasure map
What it leads you to might be great
If it’s lots of shiny currency
Also known as pieces of eight


If you’re not sure this money’s real
To test them you just might
Put them between your teeth
And try to take a bite


If you follow a treasure map
At the end of a successful quest
You might hope to find this inside
Of the buried treasure chest
