Tent Riddles

Here are four riddles for kids where a tent is the answer, which means these are great for using with our other camping riddles.

The first three of these rhyme, while the fourth is a What Am I riddle.

To use that last one, read the first line of it to your kids and ask them to try taking a guess at the answer. As the clue is that it’s something that can be put in a bag but which isn’t a sandwich, they might guess that it’s potato chips, a laptop or grocery shopping.

If they don’t guess that the answer is a tent, read them the second clue and have them take another guess now that they have some extra information. Keep going until your children either guess that a tent is the correct answer or they run out of clues.

4 Tent Riddles For Kids

Tent Riddles For Kids

If you want to camp outdoors
This will protect you from the rain
It is held up by some poles
A sleeping bag it does contain


If you like being round nature
And overnight want to camp
You might sleep inside one of these
To stop you from getting damp


Some can be bivouacs
And then there are tipis
A round one is a yurt
So what are all of these?


What Am I?

I can be put in a bag but I’m not a sandwich
I have a door but I’m not a car
I have poles but I don’t have any penguins
I’m sometimes made of canvas but I’m not a piece of art
I’m sometimes found in a field but I’m not a cow
I have people sleeping in me but I’m not a hotel room

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.

5 Compass Riddles For Kids

Compass Riddles For Kids

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


You can navigate by the sun and stars
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


If you’re lost in the middle of nowhere
Then firstly make sure your eyes are peeled
And hope your backpack contains this item
That guides using the Earth’s magnetic field


If you get lost somewhere
There’s no need to raise a rumpus
First of all, just stay calm
And pull out your trusty _ _ _ _ _ _ _


What Am I?

I have a magnet but I don’t stick to metal
I have a needle but I can’t sew
I sometimes have scales but I can’t weigh anything
I help you find your way but I’m not a map
I have N E W S on me but I’m not a TV
