Bee Riddles

Here are nine riddles for kids where the answer is a bee. These are therefore perfect for using with our other nature and insect riddles.

The first seven of these are rhyming riddles, with the word ‘bee’ completing the rhyme of the seventh.

The eighth is a one line riddle that has an internal rhyme, while the ninth and final riddle asks your kids What Am I?

To use that last idea, read the first line of it to your children and have them take a guess at what they think the answer might be. As the clue is that it’s something that can fly but which isn’t a helicopter, they might guess that it’s an airplane or a bird.

If they don’t guess that a bee is the answer, read them the clue that’s on the second line and ask them to take another guess now that they have some additional information. Keep going until they either guess correctly that the answer’s a bee or they run out of clues.

Bee Riddles For Kids

A hive is my home
I eat some pollen
To make honeycomb

And I am an insect

And can sting to protect

But it is not money
It is a flying insect

What Am I?

I can fly but I’m not a helicopter
I’m an insect but I’m not an ant
I’m yellow and black but I’m not a butterfly
