The first four of these rhyme, with the word ‘bed’ completing the rhyme of the fourth one.
The fifth of these is a What Am I riddle. To use that one, read the first line to your kids and ask them to guess the answer. As the clue is that it’s something that has a base but which isn’t a baseball field, they might guess that it’s the military, a cheesecake or a mountain.
If they don’t guess that a bed is the answer, read them the clue on the second line and ask them to take another guess. Keep going until they either guess that the correct answer is a bed or they run out of clues.
