Clock Riddles

For the last couple of months, we’ve been publishing a series of riddles for kids about items you can find around the house. We’re continuing that series today with six where a clock is the answer.

The first five of these are rhyming riddles, with the word ‘clock’ being placed in the gap of the fifth one to complete the word ‘clockwise.’

The sixth of these is a What Am I riddle. To use that idea, read the clue that’s on the first line to your kids and have them take a guess at what they think the answer might be.

As the clue is that it’s something that’s usually round but which isn’t a pizza base, they might guess that it’s a donut, a ball or a burger.

If they don’t guess that the answer is a clock, read them the second clue and ask them to guess again. Keep going until they either realize that a clock is the answer or they run out of clues.
