Bear Riddles

Our series of animal riddles continues today with a collection that all have ‘bear’ as the answer.

These therefore also go well with many of our other themes such as books, nature and camping.

The first four of these riddles for kids rhyme, while the fifth asks them What Am I?

To use the last riddle, read the first line to your children and ask them to guess what they think the answer is. As it asks about an animal in The Muppets that’s not a pig, there’s a good chance they’ll say ‘frog’ rather than ‘bear’.

If they give an incorrect answer, read them the second clue and ask them to guess again. Keep doing this until they either give bear as the answer or they run out of clues.

If you’re sailing on a pirate ship
To find your way you’ll need at least
This item that will help guide the way
By pointing north, south, west and east

But there’s another way that’s the best
An item that uses magnetic fields
To point which way is north, south, east and west

Then firstly make sure your eyes are peeled
And hope your backpack contains this item
That guides using the Earth’s magnetic field
