The first four of these are rhyming riddles, the fifth is a one liner that also rhymes, while the sixth asks your children What Am I?
To use the What Am I riddle, read the clue that’s on the first line to your kids and have them take a guess at what they think the answer will be. As the clue is that it contains water but isn’t a bottle, they might guess that it’s a swimming pool, a drinking glass or the ocean.
If they don’t guess that the answer is a coconut, read them the second clue and ask them to take another guess. Keep doing this until they either work out that coconut is the answer or until they run out of clues.
