Closet Riddles

For the last month, we’ve been publishing a series of household item riddles. We’re continuing that series today and moving from the kitchen to the bedroom with a set of riddles where the answer is a closet.

The first four of these are rhyming riddles, with the word ‘closet’ completing the rhyme of fourth.

The fifth of these is a What Am I riddle. To use that one, read the first line of it to your kids and ask them to guess what they think the answer might be.

As the clue is that it’s something which has a door but which isn’t a car, they might try guessing that it’s a cupboard, a room or an airplane.

If they don’t guess that a closet is the answer, read them the clue on the second line and ask them to take another guess. Keep going until they either guess that the answer is a closet or they run out of clues.
