Bones Riddles

Here are five riddles for kids where the answer is bones. These are therefore perfect for using with many of our other riddle themes such as anatomy, the human body and Halloween.

The first four of these are rhyming riddles, while the fifth asks your kids What Am I?

To use that fifth idea, read the clue that’s on the first line to your children and ask them to take a guess at what they think the answer could be. As the clue is that it’s something white but which isn’t a sheet of paper, they might guess that it’s a snowman, milk or a slice of bread.

If they don’t guess that bones are the answer, read them the second clue and ask them to take another guess. Keep doing this until they either correctly guess that the answer is bones or they run out of clues.
