Here are five riddles for kids where the answer is a hat, meaning these are great for using with all our other clothes riddles.
The first four of these are rhyming riddles, while the fifth is a What Am I riddle.
To use that final idea, read the first line of the riddle to your kids and ask them to try guessing what they think is being described. As the clue is that it’s something that can be used to cover things but which isn’t a tent, they might guess that it’s an umbrella, a lid or a roof.
If they don’t guess that a hat is the answer, read them the second clue and ask them to guess again now that they have some further information. Keep doing this until they either work out that a hat is the answer or they run out of clues.
