Gold Riddles

We’re continuing our series of metal riddles today with seven that all have gold as their answer.

Some of these riddles for kids can also be used with several of our other themes, such as those about colors, jewelry and sports.

The first six of them are rhyming riddles, with the seventh asking your children the question What Am I?

To use that last idea, read the clue that’s on the first line to your children and have them guess the answer. As the clue is that it’s something that is sometimes found in a pot but that isn’t a stew, they might guess that it’s a plant, soup or tea.

If they don’t work out that you’re referring to a pot of gold, read them the clue on the second line and have them guess again. Keep going until they either work out that the answer is gold or they run out of clues.

Gold Riddles For Kids

It is something very shiny
And is a valuable metal
If you win at the Olympics
It’s the color of your medal

I’m sometimes made into a coin
And sometimes into an ingot
When at the end of a rainbow
I am what is inside the pot

~

Some people bite into it
But it is not a carrot
It is a precious metal
That’s pure 24 karat

~

I’m in many types of jewelry
Like the chain of a necklace
In the tale of Rumpelstiltskin
He could spin straw into this

~

If you get this kind of medal
It means that you’ve done the best
I am the kind of coins you find
In a buried treasure chest

~

This has been known to cause a rush
But it’s not a Black Friday sale
It’s a yellow precious metal
Weighed in troy ounces on a scale

I can be a medal but I’m not silver

Silver Riddles

Our series of metal riddles is continuing today with six where the answer is silver.

Some of these can also be used with our other chemistry, jewelry and color riddles.

The first five of these are rhyming riddles, while the sixth asks your kids What Am I?

To use that sixth idea, read the first line to your children and ask them to guess the answer. As the clue is that it’s a color but which isn’t blue, they might guess that it’s red, green, yellow or any number of other colors.

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

Paint Riddles

It’s almost time for your kids to go back to school, so in case you wanted to organize some fun activities in preparation for that, we’re starting a new series of school riddles.

Today’s collection all have ‘paint’ as their answer, so these also go well with many of our other themes such as art, color and household items.

The first three of these rhyme, while the fourth is a What Am I? riddle. To use that final riddle, read the clue on the first line to your children and ask them to guess the answer. As it’s something that comes in a can which isn’t food, they might suggest something like a beverage or hairspray.

If they don’t guess that it’s paint, read them the second clue and have them guess again. Keep doing this until they either work out that the answer is paint or they run out of clues.

4 Paint Riddles For Kids

Paint Riddles For Kids

It might be worth wearing an apron
To keep your clothes nice and smart
So your brush doesn’t splash this on you
When making a piece of art

~

You often use it with a brush
But not the kind used on your hair
Add it nicely to some canvas
So that people will stop and stare

~

Even though it comes in a can
This is something you shouldn’t eat
Instead you add it to the walls
To make a room look really neat

~

What Am I?

I sometimes come in a can but I’m not food
I sometimes come in a bottle but I’m not a beverage
I come in different colors but I’m not a rainbow
I’m sometimes used with canvas but I’m not a tent
I’m used with a brush but I’m not toothpaste
