Snow Riddles For Kids

Dropping from the sky
More beautiful than rain
There are no two pieces
That’ll ever look the same

~

It isn’t hail
And it isn’t rain
But you love to see
This white stuff again

~

It’s made up of flakes
But it doesn’t come from corn
Way up in the clouds
Is where all these flakes are born

~

When it’s cold in winter
This is something you love
It’s like tiny white stars
Falling from up above

~

On a winter’s day
When a cold wind does blow
You might get to see
This white stuff that’s called _ _ _ _

Is when outdoors you go
And have a fight with your friends
Using balls made out of _ _ _ _

You travel or hike
You’ll never find two
Flakes of this alike

~

This type of winter precipitation always has a unique variation

~

What Am I?

I fall but I never get back up
I’m unique but I’m not a fingerprint
I’m sometimes part of a ball but I’m not leather
If I get warm enough I go away but I’m not a winter wardrobe
I’m sometimes part of a man but I don’t have any skin

But you know he has a beard

And he’s a jolly old fellow
As he is always going ho ho ho

Two or three spheres is your goal

An orange nose and dark black eyes
The amount of stuff on the ground
Will help to determine his size
